Starting Friday, May 15th at 4:30 p.m., users of Google Chrome will be able to use Laker Apps powered by Google without having to be online. This new "Offline mode" will enable people complete many tasks even while they do not have an active connection to the Internet. These abilities include:

  • Gmail:  Read and send messages when there is not a network connection.  Users will be able to read up to one weeks worth of their email.  They can also send messages while offline that will then automatically send when they get a network connection.
  • Calendar: View your calendar while offline
  • Docs, Sheets, Slides:  Edit and/or create these types of documents offline and the additions/edits will be synced the next time there is a network connection.
