Sharing links to documents or files in Google Drive

Sharing links to documents or files in Google Drive

No more attaching large files to your email. Using the Mail app, you can easily share links to documents or other files in your Google Drive by email.
  1. Open the Mail app.
  2. If you have several email accounts, switch to an email account you want to use.
  3. Create a new email message and fill in your recipients, or reply to an email.
  4. Tap .
  5. Tap Document, and then choose whether to share PDFs or Office documents.

    Or tap File to choose any file type.

  6. On the HTC files screen, tap Drive.

    If you don't see this screen, press first.

  7. In your Google Drive storage, open the folder that contains the files that you want.
  8. Select the files you want to share, and then tap OK.

    You'll then see the links to your selected files added to your email message.

  9. Tap to send your email.
Shared links are not accessible by your recipients automatically. Once your recipients receive the link, they can request access, and then you'll receive an email that notifies you to give them access. Or, before sharing, you can first use the Drive app to add the recipients you will share your Google Drive link with.
