With the new offline Google docs editing feature, you will be able to make changes, create docs, edit docs and even add comments without being connected to the internet. All these changes, no matter big or small will get saves in cache settings until you get a stable internet connection. This is perfect for people on the go, especially when you can’t be online when you’re in the air. The setting will be added sometime today in Google Drive, which is accessible through the gear icon. To enable the offline doc editing permissions, you would have to turn on the feature in Google Drive settings.
However, in order to begin using the offline editing feature, you will need to have the newest update for ChromeOS or Chrome. As of now, this is only available on Google Docs and not on presentation files or spreadsheets. During the 2012 keynote, Google did mention that they have been tweaking things around to enable offline editing for presentations and spreadsheets, so expect to see some new updates in the field soon. Google Drive is only getting better and better, especially with the latest iOS app available from the App Store.
