Default Google to Gmail users: Here's how you turn on new offline working, Smart Compose

This article comes from ZDNet:

Google to Gmail users: Here's how you turn on new offline working, Smart Compose | ZDNet
Quote:
Google rolls out offline support in Gmail and its new Smart Compose feature that completes your sentences.

As Google flagged in its big Gmail redesign announcement last month, the company has now rolled out offline support for Gmail on the web and its new Smart Compose email assistant.

As the name suggests, Gmail offline allows you to read, respond to, and search Gmail messages even when you're offline.

The catch is that you need to be using Chrome 61 or newer, and also have enabled the new Gmail. If you're using classic Gmail you still need to install the Chrome Gmail offline extension.

You can always use an email client such as Thunderbird to do all that, without having to use Chrome.
Having to go online just to check an email is a pain in the fundament, so, however you do it, offline capability is very useful. IMHO

Using Thunderbird offline is fine, but a lot of people prefer just to use webmail. I wouldn't want to have to use Chrome, so I find that aspect of it rather off-putting.
