The Genshin Impact update will not only improve the stability of the gameplay, but also make it more fun. Developers constantly think about what can be added and create sometimes small, and sometimes very large updates. The easiest way to update to the latest version is to launch the Genshin Impact launcher and download it through it, and then automatically install the update. But since this option is the easiest for everyone, the servers collapse at the time of updates, the download speed drops to very low rates. Therefore, it is recommended to try manual upgrade to version 1.4.
Manual update of Genshin Impact to version 1.4
If you choose manual update, then you have to try a little and go through a few simple steps. But at the same time, you independently choose a manager for downloading files, and also get the maximum download speed and save time on this. Before performing a manual update, you need to make sure that the version of your game is currently 1.3.2, otherwise you will not be able to bring it to 1.4.
