It is important to have program updates. However, they take time.
Most software applications that I have come across, give one the option to proceed with an update immediately, to cancel or to postpone to a later time.
Zwift does not give the user that option. One cannot use the game while the update in in progress.
The result is that I (and I am sure many others) have missed races / group rides etc. because of the time it takes to update the program. One usually logs in with a couple of minutes to spare (for a warmup) before a scheduled ride, especially if one is tight on time and trying to fit in some exercise into a busy life schedule.
Why can’t Zwift also have the option to postpone an update till later?
