Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Chrome, recently divulged in an interview at the Google I/O conference that “we will make them [Google Docs offline apps] available this summer. We’ve all been using it internally. It’s imminent. We want to make sure they’re good.” No idea at the moment on just how much demand there is out there for such a feature, since Google did cite that low interest an offline version was one of the reasons why it never really took off.
Guess changing times do alter things, and offline access to Google Docs might rank higher on the importance ladder for Chromebook users. What do you think – would you like to gain offline access to your documents which were previously stored on a cloud? It would be much more convenient that’s for sure, and you can be even more productive on-the-go even when there is no Internet connection at all. Are you looking forward to an offline Google Docs?
