  1. I actually don’t have this option under settings. I’d enabled the flag chrome://flags/#enable-phone-hub-camera-roll, but the feature was not working, an option to set it up in the Phone Hub didn’t work. So I didn’t the set up message in the Phone Hub.

    Now I tried to getting it back by disabling-reenabling the flag, with no luck.
