Google Launches Auto-Sync and Offline Files for Google Drive

Today, Google  (NASDAQ: GOOGL  )  updated its online storage feature, called Google Drive, adding an auto sync feature for all documents, as well as the ability to view all documents when the user is offline.

Google Drive users can now view all of their Docs, Sheets, and Slides, as well as create and edit drawings even when users aren't connected to the Internet, according the company's Google+ page. There are a few requirements for using the new feature, including using Chrome OS or the Chrome browser, enabling offline mode in Google Drive, and having enough storage space on the device where the documents will be stored.

Google is rolling out the new feature over the next few days, so users already signed up for Google Drive offline mode should see the changes shortly. The company said users can get started with Google Drive offline mode by going to http://support.google.com/drive/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2375012.
