There are actually 3 different ways of emailing a Google Drive file using Gmail but one of those ways, the traditional way, only allows users to send one file at a time.

The video tutorial below demonstrates all 3 ways of sending Google Doc files as an attachment and provides insight on which methods should be used for which particular situations.

The three methods of attaching Google Drive docs to emails covered in the video are:

  1. Converting and attaching one document at a time using the Google Drive interface.
  2. Attaching multiple (unconverted) Google Drive files to an email using the “attach from Drive” feature in Gmail.
  3. Attaching multiple (unconverted) Google Drive files in Gmail using the local Google Drive application for Mac or PC.
