What is pre install, pre download, and how do you do it for Genshin Impact 1.4?

Available on all platforms, the pre install and pre download function lets you pre download and install the resources needed for the ver 1.4 update, while still being able to play Genshin Impact. However, per-installation will consume a certain amount of your bandwidth so it’s possible to experience lag and slowdowns if your connection isn’t powerful enough.

When the time has come for pre install, simply open the Genshin impact launcher, and click the “Game Pre-Installation button” which will be located at the bottom of the window. That way, when the 1.4 update launches on March 17, you’ll simply have to update for a few minutes and you’ll be done, instead of downloading the update then.
