1 . Add the Flutter Downloader Package Into Pubsec.Yaml Folder

I have added the “flutter_downloader” latest version, you can add any of the versions according to your compatibility from the Flutter Dev.

I have also added the “permission_handler” package for managing the permissions and “path_provider” for getting the root directory path of the application.

2. Add Path Provider In Manifest

3. Create A Downloading Task

4. Load The Downloading Task
