[iPad] Chrome + Gmail = "No Offline Messages"

Been using Chrome on iPad 2 running ios 5.x without issue. I use it to read gmail in the browser.

Last night I updated the iPad to ios 6 and now when launching Chrome and opening my Gmail it just shows "No Offline Messages" where it would normally show my inbox.

Did a iPad restart. Did a Chrome cache delete. Did a Chrome uninstall/reinstall. No difference.

Currently working fine showing gmail within Safari on the same iPad.

Found threads about emoji's maybe causing an issue but I don't see any emails in the inbox with that. I even removed all inbox messages and see the same thing.

When I click on the Folders/Label icon, it shows nothing.

Any ideas?

I've had the same issue. Webern attempting to view gmail via Chrome I get a "No offline messages" message and can't view any messages. Setting controls are also grayed out. I hope google or apple comes up with a fix soon.

Something tells me that Apple and iOS 6 has blocked Chrome from loading Gmail so we're forced to use Safari.

Apple Tech Support was no help. They suggested I use the GMail App or the Apple Mail App.

This is probably more something Google needs to troubleshoot vs Apple. It's Google's app (Chrome) and Google's web page.

It could have been a coincidence it started right when I updated the OS, but I'm guessing not if others are also experiencing it.

Same issue here. Definitely a Chrome/iOS 6 issue.

Same here. When you are on the page.

In Chrome, If you click settings > report an issue

You can let google know and hopefully they get on to it. With enough people reporting it.

I found a work around for my iPad3. Go in to CHROME browser settings(the 3 horizontal lines on right side of screen next to the URL bar), and click on "Request desktop site". That allows Gmail to work on the Chrome browser app.
