Google Docs, Sheets and Slides will help you work offline on Office files. The whole process will work just like it does with Google Files. So it only works with files that are opened in Office Edit Mode, which essentially means you’ve opened them with the Google Workspace app first.
For this, you have to enable offline access beforehand. To do this, download the Google Docs Offline Chrome extension, which is installed in Chrome or Edge itself, if you don’t already have it. Once this is done, go to the Settings menu and click on the gear icon in the top right corner, selecting Settings. So just check or activate offline configuration. You will then be able to access your files offline. Any changes to offline documents will be synced to Google Drive when you reconnect to the Internet.
