Yes, your dev team didn't remove the time estimate on purpose, did they? Hope you're not following in Apple's footsteps to remove the time estimate for their battery life. One of the main reasons I use Dropbox instead of Google Drive is because of the time estimate, so please don't take that away, otherwise, I might have to find an alternative solution.

I'm also having this problem. It just shows the connection speed, whereas it used to display the time remaining. Extremely inconvenient and I'd appreciate some sort of update on when this will be fixed.
