Gmail Offline Chrome App Gets Numerous Improvements

Offline Gmail LogoGoogle has updated its Gmail offline Chrome Web Store app. Gmail offline was announced in last August. The HTML5-powered app lets users access their Gmail even when they’re offline.

The new updates include a new settings page that lets you choose how many days of email you want synchronized for offline viewing. The new settings option lets you choose between 7, 14, or 31 days worth of emails. Another update is that all the attachments will now be downloaded so you’ll have access to them offline as well.

There are numerous performance enhancements like Messages and attachments now download at a faster rate and some bugs have been fixed.

If you’re already using Gmail offline, you’ll see these improvements the next time you open the app. To get the best experience using Gmail offline, please make sure you are using the latest version of Chrome as some features may not work on older versions.
