Highlights: Increase download speed google chrome by enabling this chrome flag
One upcoming feature in Google Chrome would excite many users is the support for parallel downloading. If you have been a long time fan of the software called Internet Download Manager (IDM), you might have guessed what parallel downloading is. You can find this type of technology used by UC Browser now Google Chrome is doing same to increase your download speed.
What is Parallel Downloading?
Parallel downloading means Google Chrome can establish multiple connections to download a single file in parts. It increases the overall download speed when compared to regular download.
This should theoretically increase download speeds in Google Chrome for Android, though I don’t have any numbers on how much it will help. According to the commit, the parallel download feature is activated when a download is active for longer than 2 seconds. The feature creates 3 parallel jobs to speed up the download.
The commit mentions that the feature will be enabled for 100% of users running Chrome version 64 and above. That means anyone running one of Chrome Dev, Chrome Canary, or a nightly Chromium build will have this feature enabled by default, with Chrome Beta and Chrome Stable to follow sometime afterward.
But after trying it on Chrome Stable we found it working which u can try by watching Video Below.
Spotted by XDA, parallel downloading in Google Chrome can be turned on by enabling a Chrome flag.
The chrome flag was first added around three months back, and it was being improved since then.
Chrome parallel downloading flag is available in Chrome for Android and also on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Chrome OS. On Android, three parallel download jobs are created for a file download when the feature is in action.
