Gmail Offline mode and Nudges are now rolling out to users

Greg Sandoval  Business Insider

Note that this is only available for the web version of Gmail and it is unclear if there are plans to bring a similar feature to mobile in the future.

Until now, if you were traveling and wanted to work through an email backlog on the plane or train, you'd have to use a third-party email client, but this feature is now available as part of Gmail itself.

Once you have selected the best settings for you, click save and you can now use Gmail offline.

It's an interesting feature but it's not entirely clear that there's a big demand for software capable of doing 50% of the heavy lifting when crafting an email but Smart Compose might be a game-changer for Google.

Once you've completed those steps, 9to5Google reports that you have to go to Settings again, choose Offline and hit Enable Offline Mail.

Education Dept. dismantles team focused on fraud at for-profit colleges
Investigations into two other large for-profit colleges, Bridgepoint Education and Career Education Corporation, were also halted. However, once President Trump took office, policies within the department quickly began to shift, according to the Times .

Gmail Offline has a streamlined design that hides all but the most commonly used tools, but you can find the options to move messages to folders, report spam, apply labels and more under a menu on the top right. Most of the newly announced changes were made live then, but offline mode wasn't quite ready until last week.

Both Nudges and Offline mode are still in the process of rolling out, so remember you may not have access to either of the features yet.

If you are using anything less than version 61, you need to update. One of those is native offline mail support so that users don't have to rely on third-party software or any special extensions, and the other is Smart Compose, a predicative text feature that Google unveiled at its recent Google I/O event. It's more secure to have them deleted each time, but re-syncing them all could eat up a lot of time.

For the terminally stupid, it's probably worth iterating that "offline" still means your emails won't send until you're back online.

Want to get rid of your synced emails? Scroll all the way down and select "Advanced".
