If you get an error like I did in the screenshot below, go ahead and open the Google drive app.

But if you don’t get an error, skip to the part where I talk about the RAR app.

If you don’t have the Google Drive app, click here to get it on Android.

Make sure you select the account that has the document you’re working on, then refresh the page by swiping down.

If you see the zip, tap the 3 dots on the right side of it.

After that, the zip File containing the images will be downloaded to your phone. You just need to unzip it.

You can do that using an app called RAR for Android.

Download the app and open it, it will take you straight to your internal storage.

Tap the “Download” folder.

Then look for the file you got from Google drive. In my case it is named “untitled document.zip”.
