That means you can use Gmail offline, but you need a ‘Google Chrome browser' before you can achieve you goal.


In plain words, what this means is that even without the internet, users will be able to read, respond to, and search the messages in their Gmail accounts. This is an interesting feature from Google, and it will work well in places with slow internet or poor network areas especially in remote places.

To be able to use Gmail when you are offline, you need to bookmark in Chrome.
