Google Drive offline expected in next few weeks

Google Drive offline expected in next few weeks

Google’s recently launched Google Drive should be getting offline support within the next few weeks, according to a high ranking member of the Chrome team. Google’s Senior Vice President of Chrome Sundar Pichai was asked a question on the topic at D10 about Chrome, his answer was:

It’s a natural evolution. Users like the familiarity. Sometimes wanting to be full-screen; if you’re watching YouTube or Netflix, you want to be immersed. It’s important to remember that we release a new version every six weeks; contrast that with Windows! Google Drive offline is coming five weeks from today.

Hopefully we will see it at the Google I/O, and without any doubt offline support is really a necessary feature. Anyway, are you using Google Drive and what are your thoughts about the upcoming feature, tell us in the comment box below.
