Get your stuff from Dropbox onto your LG G3 with ease

If you use Dropbox as one of your main sources of storage for music and photos then you’ll be pleased to know that you can access it pretty easily in some of the stock apps on the LG G3. The stock Gallery and Music applications can hook into your Dropbox account and pull in your content with a few easy steps.

Sadly, anyone using the AT&T specific variant of the G3 doesn’t seem to be able to do this. Sorry, folks.

Setting up

Dropbox and the LG G3

The first thing you need to do is set up Dropbox access on the phone. To do this you’ll want to head into Settings > Cloud and then hit the “Add account” button at the bottom of the display. On the next screen you’ll see a selection of different cloud services, including Dropbox.

Tap on the Dropbox option and then you’ll be prompted to enter your credentials. Once you’re all logged in Dropbox will now show up as an active cloud account when you’re in Settings > Cloud. Tapping on it will open up a basic settings menu where you’re able to select the content you want to access as well as your used/available account storage space. If for any reason you wish to remove your account, hit the menu button in the top right hand corner and select “Remove account.”

Below the account information you’ll see checkboxes to access content for “Gallery” and “Music.” Make sure you’ve checked the relevant boxes then you’re set.
