First, create an HTML file with a button to open the picker:

 <!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Google Drive Picker Demo</title>
    <!-- Include the Google API client library -->
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>
    <!-- Include the picker API client library -->
    <script src=""></script>
    <h1>Google Drive Picker Demo</h1>
    <button onclick="openPicker()">Select a file from Google Drive</button>

    <!-- The Google Drive picker dialog -->
    <div id="picker"></div>

        // The API developer key obtained from the Google API Console.
        var developerKey = 'YOUR_DEVELOPER_KEY';

        // The Client ID obtained from the Google API Console.
        var clientId = 'YOUR_CLIENT_ID';

        // Scope to use to access user's Drive items.
        var scope = [''];

        // Load the API client library.
        function onApiLoad() {
            gapi.load('client:auth2', initClient);

        // Initialize the API client library and set up the picker.
        function initClient() {
                apiKey: developerKey,
                clientId: clientId,
                scope: scope,
                discoveryDocs: ['']
            }).then(function () {
                // Enable the picker when the client is loaded.
                document.getElementById('select-file').disabled = false;

        // Open the Google Drive picker.
        function openPicker() {
            // Create a new instance of the Google Drive picker API.
            var picker = new google.picker.PickerBuilder()

            // Show the picker dialog.

        // Called when a file is selected from the picker.
        function pickerCallback(data) {
            if (data.action == google.picker.Action.PICKED) {
                var fileId =[0].id;
                // Pass the file ID to your server-side script to download the file.
                window.location.href = 'download.php?id=' + fileId;

Next, create a PHP file (download.php) to handle the file download:

// The ID of the file to download.
$fileId = $_GET['id'];

// Create a new instance of the Google Drive API client.
$client = new Google_Client();
$client->setApplicationName('Google Drive Picker Demo');

$service = new Google_Service_Drive($client);

// Get the file metadata.
$file = $service->files->get($fileId);

// Download the file content.
$content = $service->files->get($fileId, ['alt' => 'media'])->getBody();

// Set the headers
