About Drive files with earlier versions of Android

Attaching files from Drive on your Android device depends on which version you’re running. To check which version of Android your device uses, go to Check your Android version.

If you use Android 4.4 Kit Kat, you won't see the Drive icon , but you can still attach Drive files:

  • Tap File Uploadand thenselect a file to attach. 
If you use Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, when you tap the Drive icon , you’ll be asked to update your device. For instructions, go to Update your Android version. The update might not work on some older devices, but you can choose another option:
  • Copy the file link from your mobile browserand thentap Add link  to attach it.
  • Use a computer rather than a mobile device.
