FIX: Google Chrome app download failed on android

If you are downloading a file on your Chrome app and you can't download it because it always says "failed", then, that could be irritating. And for this post, I will show you how to easily solve or fix this Google Chrome app download failed issue.

The main reason that this happened to me is because, I changed the download location of all the files that I will be downloading using Chrome into my new bought SD card. The issue is that, my android phone will first recognize the SD card and then after awhile it won't read it at all. And that's the time that when I started downloading a file using Chrome, it won't allow me to do so.

So, it is very clear now that the fix is just to reset the download location of the app to its default one or your phone's internal storage. Or, if you still want to make your SD card as the main download path for all your downloads, then, consider reformatting your SD card or buy a new one. But try doing the fix given on the tutorial below first.
