Google released a new Google Drive interface a few days ago. Google Drive, when enabled, allow you to access , create and edit your Google docs and presentations offline. I find it useful when I need to get access to my documents where no Internet is available.
The offline function is only available in Chrome browsers. Follow these steps to enable the offline function.
- Open Chrome browser
- Check the box next to
- Choose Drive
- Click on the gear icon (far right)
- Click on settings
- Check the box next to Offline to sync Google Docs, pages, etc to be edited offline as well
- Turn off wifi
- Click on document you want to edit and it opens in the chrome browser
- When you are connected to the Internet, the files will sync automatically.
