How to use your Gmail account services offline – without internet connection


Now Gmail users can easily use their Google mailbox accounts to send and receive mails even without an internet connection, all using their Chrome browser.

It implies that without any source of data or internet service access, users will be able to read, respond to, and search the messages in their Gmail accounts. 

In remote areas of underdeveloped countries, this would really be a good welcomed development, as it would go a long way to assist the masses.

To make it easier to use Gmail when you are offline, it’s recommend that you bookmark mail.google.com in Chrome.
