I'm missing the option to attach files from Dropbox when messaging on my mobile. Any ideas?

Explorer | Level 3

Dropbox is now missing from my Image options in messaging.  All that comes up when i want an attachment to my text message is Image> photos.  All other options that used to be there after Attachment> Image> have dissapeared.

This sounds like a question for Google; not Dropbox.


Re: messaging

Hey there @cecelia,
So @Rich might be right here, but I’d like to just ask if you can do the following to see if we can find Dropbox as an option on your device:
  1. From messaging tap on Attachment
  2. Choose Image
  3. Tap the menu icon in the top left
  4. Choose Dropbox from the “Open with” menu
Let me know if this is of any help at all - Cheers!
