The new capability allows everyone to mark all file types accessible even without an internet connection. It comes in handy for people who frequently travel to areas where internet connections can get spotty.
To turn on offline support for a certain file: right-click on an item in your Drive and then toggle the “available offline” option in the menu. You can then open those files using the compatible apps installed on your PC through Drive’s web-based portal. As part of this update, Chrome OS users can now choose the Docs, Sheets, and Slides files they want to make accessible offline.
The feature is available to all Drive users who use either a personal or business account.
