Access gmail offline without internet

  • According to Google, users will now be able to read, reply to, and search their Gmail messages even when they are offline.

Possibly the most well-known email service available is: Gmail. Gmail has more than 1.8 billion users and accounts as it increases to 18% of the global market for email users since last year.

Even more so, around 75% of users access Gmail on their mobile devices. Google has now made it possible to shut down Gmail in light of this.

Users will now be able to read, reply to, and search their Gmail messages even when they aren't connected to the internet, claims Google. This is a ground-breaking innovation from Google that will be especially useful in distant locations with poor access or no internet.
