Google is continually making improvements to its Gmail service, and more recently it introduced a couple of new features that many people will find handy. Previously this feature was available for Chrome users as an add-on for the browser, but this naturally hinders performance like most add-ons.
You can then play around with the settings of the feature, changing whether to keep offline data on your device.
The feature lets you write emails, search your inbox and delete or archive messages - in the new version of Gmail - when you don't have an internet connection.
G Suite users can't enable offline Gmail on their own-an administrator has to do it.
Google has finally given Gmail users something they've been asking for: the ability to use Gmail offline. It's a feature sure to please business professionals traveling with a laptop, or those who are frequently on the go and without reliable internet. On the menu that pops up click on Settings (Figure A).
On the Offline menu click Enable Offline Mail and you'll see a screen with several options on it (Figure C). When users choose to keep it, the data will not be deleted from the computer once they sign out of their Google account. If left behind, cached emails could be a serious security risk.
Before you go all-in on offline mode, there are a few limitations you should know about.
Once you have selected the best settings for you, click save and you can now use Gmail offline.
