[ad_1]

As soon as a new update is coming soon, there are many players who are wondering how to update Genshin Impact on PC and mobile devices. Similarly, some players may want to pre-install content before starting the update.

This beginner’s guide should simplify things for newbies looking to up their game. There are no noticeable limitations in doing so, except that travelers need storage space to download and install more content.

This approach should be timeless and not limited to a single version update. Speaking of which, there is no PS4 or PS5 information in this guide.

It is very easy to pre-install the new Genshin Impact update on your PC. Just open the launcher and click on the small yellow circular button with a cloud (pictured above). It should be to the left of Game Pre-Installation Get Now. Click on it and check if you have enough space for the new update.

If you don’t have enough storage space, you’ll need to remove some unnecessary files from another location on your computer. Otherwise, the download will start. How quickly the download will complete depends on your internet speed.

Note: The screenshot above was taken before the release of Genshin Impact 3.2. The next version updates will have a different background image.

Players who have not pre-installed the content can still refresh the game launcher and go to the game menu to finish downloading and verifying the game files. Travelers don’t have to pre-install content if they don’t want to, but it saves time on launch day.

Note: The pre-install feature will only be available a few days before the upcoming update. This note also applies when updating Genshin Impact on mobile devices.

There are two ways to pre-install the Genshin Impact update on mobile devices:

  1. Tap “Pre-Install Resource Pack” in the game menu.
  2. Download it using the game option.

Either method will work. For clarity, the second method is done as follows:

  1. Join the game.
  2. Open the Paimon menu (this is the game pause menu).
  3. Go to settings.’
  4. Go to “Other”.
  5. Tap “Pre-Install Now”.

Don’t forget to update the app on Google Play (for Android users) or App Store (for iOS users). Updating the game should also work fine even if you didn’t install the content beforehand. Keep in mind that this title is quite large for an app, so you may need to free up some storage space to update the game.

It’s worth noting that the pre-installation doesn’t have to be completely finished to save time when you finally download the new update. Everything will be fine as long as you download some necessary files.
