How to access Google Drive files offline?

Do you know you can access Google Drive offline? All you need to do is install the “Google Docs Offline” extension from the Chrome Web Store. You can manage the extension and control which sites it can access.


You also need to go to your Google Drive settings, scroll to Offline, and check the box. 


Great! Now, you may create, open, and edit files on your device while offline. For example, you will see this note “Working offline” in Google Docs.


When you make a change, you will see that it is saved to the device.


All offline changes will be saved to Drive once the device is reconnected.
