How to read, send and browse your Gmail account without Internet


Google’s Gmail is one of the most popular email services in the world with over 1.8 billion people using it for business and personal correspondence. According to reports, Google’s email service holds around 18% of the email client market share. Additionally, approximately 75% of Gmail users access the service on their mobile devices. And to help these users, Google has introduced a way to take Gmail offline.

Google said users will now be able to read, reply to, and also search their emails without an active internet connection. This will be very useful in areas with low connectivity or no internet, especially remote areas.

To make your Gmail account accessible offline, here’s what you need to do:

1. To start, you must have Chrome. Google said that Gmail offline mode is only available on Chrome and in normal mode. This feature is not available in incognito mode

2. Now go to from Chrome

3. When you get to your inbox, click on “Settings” or the icon that looks like a cogwheel in the top right

4. Then click on “See all settings”

5. Once on the “Settings” page, click on the “Offline” tab

6. You will now need to click on the ‘Enable Offline Mail’ checkbox to see a whole list of new settings.

7. From here you can select how many days of emails you want to sync with Gmail

Once you select a time period, Google will show you how much space is left on your computer. You will also have the option to keep offline data on your device or delete all offline data from it.

Once you have chosen what you want to do, keep or delete data, click on “Save changes”. This will enable Google offline mode on your device

Google recommends bookmarking Gmail on Chrome for easier offline use. Now, if you are using Gmail on your school or work account, you will need to ask the administrator to enable offline settings. This feature is already available for all users, so you can activate it immediately.
