Do you ever send links to videos stored on Google Drive? If so, there’s probably also a need to direct the people you share the link with to a specific time in the video.

From now on it is possible to share a timestamped link to specific parts of a video. This will take the recipient of the link directly to the indicated timestamp in the video.

How does it work?

  • Open the video file from Google Drive
  • Play the video to the desired time and pause the video
  • Select the dropdown on the ‘Share’ button (top right corner)
  • In the pulldown, select ‘Copy link to this time’
  • Share the copied link with the people who need it
