Google Drive has always been a great platform to store and access your files while being connected to a good internet connection. However, while dealing up with slow internet connection, it has been a tough task to access your files stored on Drive. Previously, Google Drive introduced offline mode to store Documents, Slides, and Spreadsheets. But now, Google Drive is also testing a feature to save PDFs, images, Microsoft Office and other non-Google files stored on Drive offline.
Currently, this feature is only available to test for the G Suite organizations. Only G Suite members can send their applications for a new beta that will allow testers to mark the non-Google files they want for offline access. Also, some users on a special basis can be called upon by Google to test this new feature on Chrome browser.
To use this feature, one must have to enable offline mode from within the Drive or Docs settings first and then sign into the account associated with the approved G Suite organization before they see the option to save files offline which they can enable to start storing files and media offline.
Google says the current version of the feature doesn’t work with Chrome OS, but it’s working to bring it to the platform in the future. As of now, there is no word from the company on whether it’s also coming to other browsers other than Chrome or not. So, we can only wait and expect for other browsers to get this feature on their browsers.
