Remember the Gmail Offline Chrome app we talked about that lets you work on Gmail in offline mode? Well, looks like it got better with more features.
You’ll now see a Settings button specifically for the offline app where you can change
As you see in the screenshot above, Gmail now gives you more mail sync options in terms of the number of days of emails you want to sync. So you could sync a week, 2 weeks or even a month worth of emails. How is this useful you might ask? Well, as the Gmail team put it elegantly in their official announcement, “the next time you get on an airplane, you can sit back and tackle up to 31 days of mail all while offline.”
Another great improvement has come in the form of ability to download mails with attachments offline. All those attachments can be now downloaded and viewed even if you are working in Gmail in the offline mode.
There are other performance enhancements and you can now use keyboard shortcuts in offline Gmail, which should come as a big relief for productivity buffs like me who tend to frequently use keyboard shortcuts.
Overall, Gmail Offline for Chrome now comes with a new and improved version and you should ensure that you are using the latest Chrome build if you want the app to work perfectly.
