Google Chrome is currently testing a new feature for its new browser app on android which will help users in the long run. The company is currently testing a new “download later” feature which will enable Chrome users to schedule downloads on the mobile browser. This new feature is aimed at saving both mobile data and battery.
The Chrome app users will now be able to select the time and date when they want the browser to start downloading the particular files, movies, songs, and many other things. Users can also set the feature to download only when the device is connected to a WiFi connection.
Google Chrome launches the Canary app
Chrome’s development process is split into four different “release channels”: Stable, Beta, Dev, and Canary. Named for the proverbial “canary in a coal mine,” the term canary has been adopted by the software development community for bleeding-edge versions run side-by-side with production releases to accelerate iteration and bug-tracking. It’s Google’s name for Chrome’s experimental model.
Chrome Canary is also a better environment for developers than other Chrome channels because it comes with features, flags, and APIs that are new and untested.
For instance, at the time of writing, any JS written in the console in Dev tools is evaluated immediately. The autofill CSS feature was available first in Canary, months before it was released as part of Stable.
Users will now notice three options from a drop-down menu, now select ‘enabled’ and restart the Chrome Canary app. Once this is done, then the users will see options – “Choose when to download” with Now, over Wi-Fi, and “Pick date and time” whenever they will try to download a webpage.
This new feature will be very useful for many people as everyone has internet dependencies and it is not always possible for people to download content instantly. So, the new Canary application from Google Chrome will help people schedule their downloads properly. Download the new Google Chrome Canary app from Play Store now.
