Today at Google io. Clay Bevor, director of product management for Google Apps, announced that Google Docs will now work for offline editing. Brevor proved it by opening Google Doc via Google Drive right on stage.
The offline editing should work on multiple devices, including the Chromebook and smartphone. All formatting changes will now be saved locally to a local cache and then synched to Google Docs once the user gets back online.
“If you’re flying back from Google io, try it one the plane,” Bevor said, “It works great.”
