Firebase Storage-Download Image on Assets

Hello, I want to make an application where I download images from firebase. I managed to download the image and save it. But I can’t show the image once it is downloaded … my goal is to download the image once and use it thereafter without downloading it again, as if it were always in Assets.

I see several things that should be done differently.

  1. you cannot download files into the assets (APK)
  2. The path to the assets (Companion) is wrong, this should be:
  3. you would not need READ_ / (WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE) permission for (reading from) the assets.

So, how can show this images after downloaded them? i want to use it later for cavas and image sprites

You have to download them eg there:

Yes i download in several places the image but i cant invoke it… there is and extension for this to invoke image from other folder?

It’s not an image, it’s a pdf:


ty!.. I will try this!

I tried with 2 types of storage locaion i.e /storage/emulated/0/Phone Storage/Makeroid/ this is giving error and after this i tried with /storage/emulated/0/Phone Storage but this is giving error “could not create a folder to store the download” Please help for this error upload to firebase storage is working fine but download is having problem.
