Option to Receive a Text or Email Notification When a Download Has Finished

Have you ever gotten home from a long day, wanted to play your favorite game but turns out you have to wait 2 hours for it to update?! Well this idea is supposed to suppress atleast some of that rage.
Simply put you get the option of getting a text message or email when ever an update or download happens.

Though not every time obviously but when you choose to download/update something have this be an option below saying something like "Would you like to receive a notification?(this turns into more of a representation)

*click the check box* if you wanted to be notified when its finished if not then leave it blank.
It then asks you in a drop down menu email or text.
If you haven't done whatever setting are set in place it'd then take you to the settings and you'd enter your number or email.

        Completely understandable but some people prefer sms or email so that was the first thing that popped in my head plus that's what I personally would want but either way that as well could be in the drop down menu. You're not limited to only my suggestions.
