After a rocky start, Chromebooks are starting to make a comeback. The offline capabilities of Chrome OS are impressive, and Chromebooks are now widely available from Dell, Acer, HP, Toshiba, and Samsung at reasonable price points.
Chromebooks are able to tackle many needs like sending emails and even watching movies offline. However, these capabilities are not widely known to the public, and take some tinkering around with settings to work. Here is a list of things you can do offline and how:
Although you can’t create or edit events on Google Calendar offline, you can still view your schedule. Simply, open Google Calendar in browser, click the gear icon, and select Offline option. Then click the Enable button in the pop up window that appears.
Gmail offline is built to support offline access. Therefore, emails can be read, responded to, searched and archived without network access. Google does not include offline capabilities immediately. But once you download and activate Google’s Gmail Offline app, you are ready. It shares the same appearance as the mobile Gmail apps, and will synchronize your messages and actions. You can then access these offline by opening the Gmail Offline app.
With the Google Drive app, you can edit and view Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Drawing files. Simply open the Google Drive app, then click the gear icon in the upper-right corner and click Settings. Click the General tab and check the box that says “Sync your work to this computer so that you can edit offline”
Google recently released the offline movie and TV show playback for Google Play. This means you can work and play offline. Now, any content you’ve purchased through the service can be saved locally on your Chromebook. To activate, click the small grey download icon at the bottom of a listing. Clicking this icon will activate offline viewing.
These new offline capabilities are just the beginning for Chromebook, and although they have had a few setbacks and a poor reputation to work on, it is clear to see that Chromebook is an efficient and powerful resource for web-less action.
