Being the most popular internet browser, Google Chrome is being constantly improved and updated. There are plenty of new features that Google keeps testing for Chrome. The latest feature that Google might add to Chrome is the Download Scheduler for Androids.
A report from Techdows recently stated that the company is working on adding a “download later” feature to Chrome for Android. With this option, users will not need to schedule a file download for later via a separate download manager app. Instead, Chrome itself will provide an option to download files at a specific date and time in the future. The option will be found in the download dialog that shows up when a download is ready to start.
There are not currently many download options in Google Chrome. The only download-related options that are available in the browser are those of choosing a file location and whether to download files over Wi-fi.
Now in Chrome Canary, users can visit chrome://flag and turn on the experimental flag called “enable download later” from there. With that, users will then be allowed to schedule their file download whether for right then or later, and can choose a specific date and time for the download as well. Moreover, there is also a Downloads page within Chrome that has a “scheduled for later” tab that allows users to manage the pending downloads.
There is no certainty as to whether this new feature will make an appearance on Chrome Stable or when, but for now it can be tried on Chrome Canary.
