Google Drive Rest API V3 Downloading large files with alt=media option (>25MB)

I am trying to figure out how I can download a large file directly in the browser via the Google Drive API V3.

I'm using option 1 which is : Download a file — files.get with alt=media file resource

When I send my request ( https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v3/files/[fileId]?alt=media), I got the content of the file as a response of it.

Currently I'm creating a blob file with the response of my query, then reading the blob file to start the download on the browser.

The problem with that is, reading the blob file consumes a lot of memory and if the file's size is more than 10MB, then browser crashes.

<strong>So my question is</strong> : how can I start the download on browsers via the Google APIs like mention on the screenshot bellow? See expected result


Try downloading the file in chunks using the range http header. See https://developers.google.com/drive/v3/web/manage-downloads "Partial download"
