Offline mode is now available in Google Drive: Here’s how to access files when you’re not connected to the internet.

Offline mode is now available in Google Drive. The most recent upgrade was published in a blog post by the corporation. Offline access to PDFs, Office files, and pictures is now available. However, the files must first be tagged to be made available offline in order to do so. Users will be able to open files in the browser even if they are not connected to the internet as a result of this.

Back in 2019, Google began beta testing a feature that allowed users to flag non-Google file types as being available offline when using Google Drive on the web. All users are now able to use the feature. As a result, everyone may now choose which PDFs, pictures, and Microsoft Office documents they want to view offline.

To do so, you must first install the Google Drive for desktop programme on your Mac or Windows computer. In addition, the “Offline” access option in Drive settings on the web should be enabled. Right-clicking on a compatible file after finishing the setup process will reveal a “Available offline” toggle.

All Google Workspace clients, as well as Cloud Identity Free, Cloud Identity Premium, G Suite Basic, and Business customers, can use the service. Google is also making it available to users with personal accounts.

If your 15 GB of free storage is full, you can upgrade to a higher storage plan to keep backing up your files on Google Drive. Users in India can select between monthly and yearly plans.

For Rs 130 per month, Google gives 100 GB of storage capacity. If you need extra storage space, Google provides a plan that would give you 2TB for Rs 650 per month. Additionally, Google offers a package for Rs 200 per month that includes 200 GB of data.
