Linking to Google Drive

Hi Everyone (anyone!)

Please could someone tell me how to add a song which is a link to Google Drive, without everyone saying that they don't have permission to access it?

Has anyone successfully linked to Google Drive and people can hear the song without any extra steps?

Thanks in advance
Simon

I found this, that might help. I've not tried it because I host my own files.

Right click the relevant folder in Google Drive.
Select Share.
Click Advanced.
Click Change.
Select one of the following options:
On - Public on the web: Select this setting to display a file on your site in the Google Drive app.
On - Anyone with the link: File can only be viewed in Google Drive by people with a direct link.
Off - Specific people: File can only be viewed in Google Drive by specific people who give access to.
Click Save.
Click Done.

Thank you very much for this. It's not exactly like this but it did give me the inspiration and I think I've found how to do it. In 'share' you can select 'Anyone on the internet with this link can view'. Previously I think I had 'anyone in my contacts' selected by mistake.
Thanks again for replying
