Google just announced that Google Drive users can now create, edit, comment, and present slides without an Internet connection—as long as they use the Chrome browser or Chrome OS.

A similar offline function currently exists in Google Docs, and so Google clarified that users will not have to change any settings to work with Slides offline if offline editing is already on in Docs. Moreover, any new slides or changes will auto-update when back online.

Google further revealed offline mode for Google Spreadsheets will début soon, but today’s new feature is rolling out over the course of the day.

Get more details on how to turn on offline mode for Slides and Docs at the official Google Drive blog.
