How to use Gmail offline without internet connection?

The most-used email service in the market Gmail can now be used offline without an active internet connection. Gmail users can send, receive and check emails even if they don’t have an active internet connection. Here’s how you can enable Gmail offline.

How to Use Gmail Offline?

To enable the Gmail offline option, please follow the few steps below:

  • Open your Gmail account on your browser and access the settings using the gear icon at the top right corner. In the pop-up menu, select “See all settings” to open the settings menu.
  • Go to the “Offline” tab from the top navigation bar.
  • On this page, check the “Enable offline mail” box to turn on offline mode for Gmail. You can also choose the desired settings for the feature.
  • Once done, click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom.

When the offline mode is turned on, Gmail will automatically sync your latest emails for offline access and keep them for a certain period, ranging from 7 days to 90 days.

Keep in mind that sending an email in offline mode will not send the mail to a recipient. Instead, it will save the composed mail in the “Outbox” folder and send it as soon as the user returns online.

Google also recommends that users bookmark Gmail in their Chrome browsers to access the platform while offline quickly.
