What Can You Do Offline? When you aren't online, you can still do lots of things with your Chromebook:
  • Write emails. Gmail Offline is built to support offline access, allowing mail to be read, responded to, searched, and archived without network access. Gmail Offline will send your messages as soon as Wi-Fi is available.
  • View appointments. With offline access from the Google Calendar app, you can view a read-only version of your calendar.
  • View, create, and edit documents. The Google Drive app lets you view and edit Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Drawings files.
  • View and edit photos. Your Chromebook comes with a built-in photo editor, so you can view and edit photos that are saved to your Chromebook.
  • View Microsoft Office and Adobe .pdf files. You can easily use your Chromebook to view Microsoft Office or Adobe files without an Internet connection.
  • Take notes. With Google Keep, you can take and save short notes that will save to the cloud the next time you're online.
  • Read offline web pages. If you've saved web pages for offline viewing later, they will open in Google Chrome on your Chromebook.
