Second m.2 drive in the G436 MSI Z490 Plus board?


I'm getting mixed information from google searches and the MSI website. I would like to add an additional storage device to my G436, and would prefer m.2 simply for the ease of install and less cables to run.

Is adding a second one possible in the M2_2 slot? Obviously, there is a slot there so it must be possible, but I don't know if it will run at its maximum speed, or at all. Some results say it will not be supported by the CPU, others say it will. I wanted to get a WD Sn550 m.2 drive if possible, so an answer from people familiar with this particular motherboard would be awesome.
