    Now that we are in the "Settings" menu, we want the option that says, "Google Drive
    :
    Show Google Drive photos & videos in your Photos library". What this means, is that this option will allow us to see all of the files that we have on Google Drive. If we are uploading or backing files from our computer or other devices to Google Drive, then we will be able to see all of those files on this HTC One M8 as well. Currently, the option is deactivated. This is the default setting. The icon is gray.
