    I recently purchased a Nexus 5 and, for some reason, .GIF files will not animate via the Google Drive application. Oddly enough, they work just fine if I access my drive from within Chrome. Whenever I try to view .GIFs, I get an "animated image could not be loaded" error.

    I have tried clearing the cache and the app data and I have tried both the updated and non-updated version of the app.

    Despite a thorough search of the good, old interwebs, I haven't encountered anything concerning this issue.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi ilovemy911. I wish I had an answer to your .gif file problem. I encourage you to check into the discussion area for your Nexus 5. The members in there know your device best and maybe have experienced the problem you describe. I'm certain they will have some ideas and perhaps a solution for you. Here is a link to that discussion area:

    Best of luck to you and I hope you find your answer and much more in the Nexus 5 area.
