    Default Enable Google Drive uploads over mobile data (not WiFi-only)?

    I have a Nexus 5 and an unlimited data plan with AT&T. Whenever I try to upload pics or files to my Google drive, I find the phone waiting for a WiFi connection. Is there a workaround for this?

    Absolutely. In the Drive app, under Settings > Data Usage, disable the "Transfer files only over Wi-Fi" setting.

    Same problem here, I have a S4 mini, and it doesn't stop when i disable the "wifi only" option.

    When i try to open a file it gets stucked on the loading screen and eventually shows a "Network error. Try again later" message.

    (Obviously my LTE network works just fine)
