〓How to Update〓

The following guide from the official Genshin Impact blog post will help players with the preinstallation feature.

Mobile (iOS & Android)

Method 1: Travelers may begin pre-installing update resources by going to the Paimon Menu > Settings > Other > Pre-Install Resource Package.

Method 2: Travelers may also begin pre-installing update resources by tapping the “Pre-Install Resource Package” icon in the bottom-left corner of the login screen.

When the version update is released, Travelers on iOS devices must enter the App Store and tap “Update.” Android users may open the game and follow the directions on-screen (or open Google Play and tap “Update”).

Using the pre-installation function will reduce the time that the game spends updating resources on the first time you enter a new version, even if you did not fully complete pre-installation.


After the pre-installation function is available, you must first update the Genshin Impact Launcher. After updating the launcher, a “Game Pre-Installation” button will appear to the left of the “Launch” button. Click “Game Pre-Installation” to download the latest game resources.

Using the pre-installation function can speed up the update progress of the launcher during version updates.
