Genshin Impact 3.4 update is expected to release on January 18, and it will be around 7 GB in size for PC and about 1.5 GB for mobile, which can take some time to download, and you will not be able to enjoy the new content till then. HoYoverse allows its players to pre-install the updates that will download most of the data files in advance. 

This allows Travelers to play immediately after the update is released by downloading a smaller update. The pre-install feature for Genshin Impact 3.4 update will be available a few days before the patch releases, and here's how you can pre-install it.
