Sync obsidian note between an ipad and an an samsung android phone, using google drive

i don’t use PC (Mac and Windows), only an Ipad Pro and a Samsung android phone. Please recommend me the direction

Syncing with Google Drive on iOS is not possible.

See why here:

There are only three known working syncing solutions on iOS:

  • Obsidian Sync
  • iCloud
  • Git

Instructions for the first two are also on the page linked.
A tutorial for syncing using git is linked on this meta post:

Isn’t it true that if you place your vault on a drive that can reach with both devices (iPad and Android phone) your problem is solved? You then choose on both “open (the same) folder as vault”…

not with google drive.
iOS is the limiting factor here, most sync solutions do not implement the required APIs(see my first link)

The problem is that when I choose “Open folder as vault”, the file picker doesn’t show “Google Drive” file as an option. Both on Android and Ipad
