I got enough of the poor functionality of com.android.providers.downloads

So I decided for a better alternative download manger.

But how can I choose the alternative as preferred download manager? My alternative download manager is listening to my clipboard. But this does not help me, because not all addresses to online files can be easily copied into Android's clipboard.

  • The Android Downloadmanager is a system app and can't be replaced by a regular app. My be with root permissions it may be possible to do so. – Robert Mar 29 '19 at 14:55

you can use your alternative download manager to select which storage should be used and you can't change download process to the alternate.
