Google Drive now provides support for offline mode. The company has announced the new update in a blog post. Users will now be able to access PDF, Office files and images offline as well. However, for that to use the file offline first, users will have to mark that file. This will allow users to open files using a browser even when they are not connected to the Internet.
In 2019, Google began beta testing a feature that allowed users to flag non-Google file types as available offline when using Google Drive on the web.
