A download is the transfer of data from one computer to another. This can include sending files via email or transferring them over a network such as the Internet, and it can also refer to copying files from a server onto your computer. Downloads may also involve streaming media, such as pulling videos on YouTube down to store on your device or listening to music from Spotify.
