Google Chrome for Android introduces a lazy download feature


According to online sources, Google developers are currently testing the new feature in the proprietary Chrome browser for the Android platform. We are talking about the possibility of lazy loading of files, which recently became available to users of the test version of the Chrome Canary browser.

Google Chrome is the most popular web browser in the world, and this applies not only to the desktop version of the browser, but also to the mobile application for Android. This is partly due to the fact that the developers are constantly working to improve their product and regularly add new features, one of which in the future may be the ability to lazy loading files.

According to reports, a “download later” tool is currently being tested to help users reduce their reliance on third-party download managers. This function will allow you to start downloading a file through Chrome, not only at the current time or when connected to a Wi-Fi network.

If necessary, you can specify the desired date and time when the download should start. At the moment, lazy loading is available in Chrome Canary, and to start using it, you must activate the corresponding parameter in chrome: // flags. In this case, the download page will also display information about the files that were planned to be downloaded in the future.

It is worth noting that a large number of features and improvements in the Chrome browser are in a test state, so it is difficult to say exactly when the lazy loading tool will appear in the stable version of the browser.

If you notice an error, select it with the mouse and press CTRL + ENTER.
