Everything related to P2P networks and downloading Torrent files has been with us for many years. Despite the widespread use of the whole set, the truth is that the novelties in terms of the use and functions of the clients have been scarce. This is something that directly affects the popular qBittorrent, one of the most widespread programs for this type of task.
In fact, we want to talk to you about this specific proposal because it has just improved ostensibly compared to previous versions. This is one of the most important and well-known Torrent clients in the world. That is precisely why the news that arrives directly affects a multitude of users. Along these same lines, we want to focus on the new version that has come to the program and that will allow us to access a series of important new functions here.
To give you an idea of everything we are talking about, it is worth mentioning that in the new version of qBittorrent we will already be able to use the Torrent v2 standard . First of all, we must know that version 2 of Torrent offers us a series of improvements related to these download files. Moreover, it is to be assumed that it will be the most widely used and extended format when downloading content this way in years to come.
Hence precisely the importance of customers gradually adapting to this new standard for the future. This is precisely what we are going to find in the new qBittorrent from now on. If you want to update yourselves and be able to use this Torrent v2 format in the aforementioned program, we will show you how to do it.
Take advantage of Torrent v2 from qBittorrent now
The first thing we must do is check the version of the client that we currently have on our computer. In this way we will know if we can already use the v2 of the Torrent, or not. To do this, we only have to go to the Help / About menu option in the main interface of the client once it is running.
Once we know this information, we must know that in order to benefit from the advantages of Torrent v2, we will have to have version 4.4.0 or higher of the client . If so, by default the program will already be compatible with downloading new files in Torrent format, so we can use them without any problem. But on the contrary, if we find that we have an older version of the client, something common at the moment, we will have to update the application.
Although there are several third-party websites that offer us this software solution, we recommend that you download the latest version from the official qBittorrent website . That way we make sure we have the latest update and without any type of unwanted additional software . At the same time, we must bear in mind that when installing it, the installer itself detects that we have a previous version, so it does not modify the configuration parameters established up to now.
This means that only the program itself will be updated, without affecting the Torrents loaded or the software configuration. In this way and with qBittorrent 4.4.0 on the PC, we can now use the aforementioned Torrent v2 .
