What is link sharing on Google Drive?

Sharing a video or any other file on Google by sharing its link is link sharing on Google Drive. The advantage of this method is that it allows the owner of the file to control how the recipient can interact with the file.

Anyone with the link can perform the following actions, depending on the permissions set by the owner:

Visionneur : Visualiser uniquement le fichier
Commenter : Écrire des commentaires sur le fichier
Éditeur : Peut éditer le fichier

Note: One advantage of Google Drive link sharing is that if you need to send an attachment larger than 25MB, you can save the video to Google Drive and insert that link into your email. When composing your email, you need to tap 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.
