Google has promised to roll out to users in the US and UK offline access to Gmail, albeit as an experimental feature of its cloud-based application suite.
The Gmail new offline function will appear in the next couple days and enables users to handle their email through the usual Gmail interface. Any changes and updates made while offline will be automatically synchronised, once an internet connection becomes available.
In an official Google blog, the company has confirmed it has solved the problem of enabling offline access.
“Gmail will load in your browser even when you don’t have an Internet connection. You can read messages, star, label and archive them, compose new mail and more. Messages ready to be sent will wait in your Outbox until you’re online again.”
