    I'm unclear on how to send files. I tried to send some files from my PC that I wanted on my phone. They uploaded to Google Drive, but I have no idea if they made it to my phone or where they'd end up if they did. Am I missing something?

    After they are uploaded to google drive they should automatically download on your phone and open there. So that's not happening for you?

    Not that I can tell. I have the "Open Files Automatically" setting turned off. I don't want the files to open, just transfer. Where will they be stored on my phone? It's entirely possible that they're downloading and I just don't know where to look.

    If they were downloaded they should open automatically. Can you check if you have a "Join/Files" folder on your device's root folder?

    I don't appear to. Now, this device isn't rooted. Is that necessary to make this work?

    It is not. Do you receive other pushes normally on your phone?

    Just tried sending this tab and it worked fine.

    Also, just tried sending a single file and it worked fine.

    Maybe it was because I sent multiple files? Let me experiment....

    No, that worked, too.

    Hmmm....not sure why it failed the first time. Weird.

    One last thought - should the files be deleted from Google Drive once downloaded to my phone?

    No, they should not. they are kept there in case you need them again :) Glad it's working now!

    Deleting once downloaded would be a nice option to add. Definitely not critical.
