This feature brings the collaboration benefits of Google Workspace to Microsoft Office files. At times when your device is offline, you’re now able to edit, comment, and collaborate on Office files using Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Any changes made to files while offline will then sync to Drive once you are connected again. This change only applies to files that have already been opened in Office editing mode with Docs, Sheets or Slides. 



Please note that offline access must be enabled by the user in Drive settings:

  1. At the top right, click the wheel icon and then Settings

  2. Turn on Offline setting

  3. Click Done

All customers.
