Gmail has introduced an offline mode for everyone. The new offline feature eliminates the need for the internet to read or respond to and also search Gmail messages. This offline feature will prove to be helpful, especially for people living in areas with a patchy internet connection.
As per the Google Support page, the offline feature will let users read, respond to, and search for Gmail messages even when their device isn’t connected to the internet. To use this mode, users will need to visit mail.google.com. The tech giant recommends bookmarking the Google link to start with.
Notably, if your Gmail is linked with your school or work account, the admin will need to change the settings. The rest can simply follow the steps mentioned below.
Before getting into the steps, it should be noted that Google says Gmail offline will work on Google Chrome and will work only if you are browsing in normal mode, not incognito. Now, here’s how to turn on Gmail offline mode as Google explained:
