Android tablets and smartphones running the software no longer require an internet connection to grant users access to their files.
Documents marked for offline viewing will be automatically synched with a user account when online access is detected, though manual link-up is also possible.
"Now you can select any file in Google Docs to make it available offline. So regardless of whether you're connected to the internet, you're always connected to those files," read a blog post from Google.
"Even better, Google Docs automatically updates your offline files when you're on Wi-Fi. You can also manually update files anytime you have a data connection by opening the file or tapping 'Update' from the Offline section of the app."
Google has also announced that it has tweaked the Android tablet edition of Google Docs, offering high resolution viewing and improved navigation features.
Last month, the search engine giant introduced an offline mode to its Google Books service, allowing Chrome and Chrome OS users access to digital titles downloaded through the application without an internet connection.
Google Docs is available to download for free via the Android Market.
