Google Tests Out Scheduled Downloading For Chrome On Android

Google Chrome has managed to encompass quite a plethora of devices out there. From laptops to cellphones to even tablets. Google Chrome and its integration go a long way. In a recent update from the company, we look at an article posted on 9to5Google. According to the article, Google would be adding a new feature to its beta version of the Chrome browser on Android.

According to the article, the company would be adding scheduled downloads to Chrome for Android. This would honestly be a good feature to have. Not only can you set a download to start at a later date but you can even set the time. This makes things quite simple for people bound by a limited data plan. Another thing is that sometimes, due to RAM cuts, users have to stay in the browser for the download to continue. This would help in locking that and starting at a later time when the user is, for example, at home. It would also be something you would opt for when you want to add that huge data file to download on your home WIFI.

Now, the catch here is that the service is currently only available for the Canary 86 version of the platform. This means that only Beta testers can check it out for now. All they have to do is go to flags and check scheduled downloading from there on in. Now, while this is in the beta phase and people will test it out, it does not mean that this would make it to the final version. There have been many cases when these features, no matter how good they may be, never make it to the stable build.
