Google Docs Android Application:
The Google docs app got a recent update and that is, it now enables the user to view his/her documents even he/she is offline. This app has already got features galore and this new update makes it even classier.
You can now view the Google docs when there is no internet connectivity for your handset, although these documents cannot be edited in the offline mode. You are sure to have an idea of the apps functions. But since, this update has been recently made, not many know to actually view their Google documents in the offline mode. Here is what you need to do.
Steps for enabling the offline mode in case you have an Android based tablet
Open the app and there you will find the option that says “Available offline”. Click on this option.
If you are unable to find this option then you also have the choice of going to the “Menu” of the app and when you click on it, you will find the “Make available offline” option. Simply click on this.
There will be a list of all the Google documents that you have in this app and whichever of these documents that you wish to view when you are offline you just need to click on those documents and hold for a little while, so that the “Make available offline” option appears near these documents. Click on this option.
Once you have done this all the documents that you have in the Google app will be available for you offline and you will be able to check them even though there is no internet connectivity for the same. Also, once you are done with using this option, you can reverse the process by simply unchecking the check boxes that are present on the “Make available offline” tab.
Steps for enabling the offline mode in case you have an Android smartphone
In case you access the Google docs from your android handset then you will be pleased to know that the steps for getting the document displayed in the offline mode are almost the same as in an Android based tablet and just like the tablet you need to click and hold on the document list till the “Make offline” option appears and then click on it.
