Insert from Drive in the Gmail Android app
It’s now easier for you to share files with friends and family—simply insert Google Drive files directly into your Gmail messages on your Android phone or tablet. If the file isn’t shared with the person you’re sending it to, you’ll get the option to change your sharing settings before you send it. And you’ll notice improved autocomplete suggestions for your contacts when composing messages—just start typing in the To, Cc or Bcc field to see better suggestions, faster.

These features will be rolling out over the next few days. If you aren’t already using the Gmail Android app, download the latest version from the Play store (https://goo.gl/3vcM7k).

+Menachem Tauber I don't think it would work well until iOS 8. Right now there's no way for iOS apps to communicate with each other.
 
Would be nice to have an additional option to add it as an attachment directly, for files under 25MB, for recipients that don't use Drive.
 
+Sushubh Mittal Correct, I still know some people that would like a physical attachment sent, rather than going to the web and having to download it. I am all for just using Drive though :) Correction on my part: they need an account to edit or download or do anything but view

+Ivan Stoychev Slow rollout. People have been posting that they got it. I don't have it yet either. :-(

+Adam May +Menachem Tauber I don't think the iOS Gmail app would need to communicate with another app; it could probably generate a list of Drive folders and files using the account session you're already using to be logged into Gmail in the first place. Of course, depending on how things work in iOS 8, being able to pull up the Drive app to pick a file might be a smoother experience than that.
 
Please create an app for Windows phone
 
Yawn. You could always share VIA gmail.
 
...i guess the past few months have shown in real terms how much product dept and/or width the google has in its arsenal.  It must be exhilarating to have the resources to fund all of one's dreams...  ~
 
Extraordinario.. Espero que se cumpla y además funcione..

I hate google+ and YouTube, because now I can't disconnect my old YouTube from this account. Honestly Google is trying to hard. And you're taking away our rights from having choices. 
 
+Kyle Salewski - You do realize they add pointless crap on to make up for what they took away? And you do realize you have to pay to get more storage? I think google is being ridiculous. It's just my opinion. They give us free service because they know we will go to another site. But the more advance they get, the more they take away.
 
+Solitary Karma you do realize no one else offers a ridiculous 1tb of storage at only $2 per month.
 
+Solitary Karma let's see.. Google gives you the ability to freely keep up to 20,000 songs in storage.. Unlimited photos when backed up to photos in 2048x resolution.. Unlimited office documents... Why are you complaining?
 
i heard rumors that google are trying to get people to pay to watch youtube
and upload videos
 
+Luis Amador : 1 terabyte costs $10 a month, not $2.
 
Okay thanks very much,will be getting it asap. I gotit! I gotit!

 
I'll stick with K-9 Mail until Gmail for Android lets me easily mark a message as Unread.
Translate
 
+Paul Stregevsky Your wish is fulfilled. You can do it in 1 click while viewing an email by touching the envelope icon at the top of screen. It takes 2 clicks from a list of emails: touch the picture of the email you want to mark Unread to select the email, then touch the envelope icon.

Welcome to Gmail! :-)

hi "worku"  I m fine. how r  u ?
 
+Luis Amador You made it viewable via link, not just by adding someone's email address. If you just add someone's email to the share box, and they do not have a google account, they cannot download it, only view it.  
 
+Kyle Salewski it's not only viewable, it's downloadable.. Regardless of sending it to anyone via email or not..
 
+Luis Amador I know this. You are missing the point. If I just add a document, as instructed above, it will add the recipient to the share settings, if they do not have a google account, they need to create one to download the file UNLESS the owner goes in and changes it to Public with Link. This is what a user will see if you just add their email, open this link in an incognito window or a window you are signed out from your google account: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1I8VdW5L5pspjKODkARjDC3nUNusu8C58Xd7JT4we5h0/edit?invite=CMGyjMoI 
 
You cannot download the file if you just add a users email.
 
Your browser was logged out of a google account? No. Right click my link above and hit Open link in incognito window
 
+Kyle Salewski wait.. how did you even go about creating that test document? i cant replicate the result you got.. please give me the steps.
 
Create a document in drive, hit share, add an email: john@yahoo.com, sign out of Drive or open an incognito window, check your yahoo mail, click the link in the email you received from Google, you will be able to see the document and nothing more. 
 
these are all waste o my space  pleas. remove them  helen h
 
You can only share a private document with a Google Account. It has to work that way because Google cannot authenticate the identity of anyone else.
 
Dear Google: you always make things better technology wise don't you? Love, Andrena
