Offline Mode for Google Drive coming in 5 weeks

Google Drive is still missing a large amount of features that competing services such as Box and Dropbox offer. One of those important features is an offline mode, and although it wasn’t specified how it will work, we believe it will allow the offline syncing of not just individual files, but also whole directories onto your mobile device.

We can expect to see this feature — along with more — shown off at Google IO in the coming weeks.

Please explain a little bit more ? I have gDrive installed on my HTC Desire running GB but I have not found a service that allows me to store documents offline on my SD. Am I missing something ?


Proper offline music that we can have full access to with the Google Play Music app. Do it G!


Can’t wait to hear about it. 🙂
I’ve started to use drive more and more so extra features are welcomed!

Listen, all I want from Google Drive, (nee Docs) is a WYSIWYG editing in Android.

And a flying car.

It’s 2012 for chri’sake. Is it really so much to ask?

Needs Dropbox’s “Export” function, hopefully offline mode will be like that.
