What is Google Drive Link Sharing?
Sharing the video or any file on Google by sharing its link is a link sharing on Google Drive. The advantage of it is that it allows the owner of the file, to control how the receiver can interact with the file.
Anyone with the link can do the following according to the permission setting set by the owner:
- Viewer: Only view the file
- Commenter: Write comments about the file
- Editor: Can edit the file
Note: An advantage of Google Drive link sharing is that if you have to send an attachment that is larger than 25 MB, you can save the video on Google Drive and insert this link on your email. When you compose your email, you have to press Drive and choose the video you want to send. And Gmail automatically adds a Google Drive link to the file rather than turning it into an attachment.
