Sharing Media from Google Drive

What it is

Google Drive allows you to not only upload files for easy access from wherever you're signed into your Google account, and you can also upload and share photos, documents, and videos in a few simple steps. Once you upload files to Google Drive you can also share them with others so that they can view, edit, or download them at anytime. It only takes a few moments to share a video file on Google Drive, and as long as the correct permissions are in place, the recipient can easily access the file.
