Work does not stop at the Google factory, which with Android 11 already in the oven and finishing its cooking is also busy in continue to continuously improve your core applications and services both on Android and on the web, showing us such interesting news as this that is about to reach Google Chrome.
We were anticipated by xda-developers with some screenshots, so we can already confirm that Chrome, probably the most popular Internet browser globally, You will receive a download scheduler very soon so you can configure when and how you want to download your files without penalizing the instant bandwidth you have.
In fact, it’s that it’s about one of the most useful features that Google has presented to us in recent times, allowing us download any file from the web at a specific date and time Fully customizable, directly from the download dialog box that opens automatically when you click on a file link.
To date, the download menu only allowed us to choose the final location of the files and if we wanted to download them only with WiFi connectivity, although the last Chrome Canary already enables the experimental option of “Activate download later” in section “Chrome: // flags”, where all the functions are usually found in browser tests.
The new advanced download menu is now available in Chrome Canary and can be activated among the usual ‘flags’, being able to download any file at the date and time you want, avoiding inconvenience and momentary slowness

Activating that option will enable you a much more complete download menu, where you can choose if you want to download the file at that moment or schedule it for any day and time, the next time you connect to a WiFi network or save your preferences for the next times you do not need to schedule downloads. This makes you can keep all your bandwidth at that time, and download the file at a time when you are not using your device to avoid slowness and have it ready when you need it.
The Chrome download page is also updated by activating this still experimental option, showing a section of scheduled downloads for later, being able to manage them to cancel them if we no longer need that file.
As always it is a little unknown when will this option arrive to the stable versions of the Google Chrome browser, in fact it is that we don’t even know if it will finally come as it happens with all the novelties that are tested in the development versions of Google services.
It’s not the only cool thing we’ve seen in Chrome, like the native biometric authentication for web payments, the 64-bit engine for Android 10, the screenshot editor or the streaming low resolution videos when operating in mode ‘Lite’. We will see if all these ideas come together, and we will be attentive to show you how they work at the time that Google publishes them in stable versions.
