No one can deny that Google Drive is a popular file sharing service by Google. Which means you can trust them easily for save your files online with trust because of Google. Many developers and website owner, even normal users use this service for sharing files online.
Also if you want to share a direct download link for Google drive files then there are many tools available online to generate one click download link for Google drive files. But wait! There are some limit with these types of file extension like APK, MKV files and even when you will try to share large files with direct download link, then there are an error occurred called "This file is too large to scan for virus".
Because of this error, some new users think that you are trying to share a virus in their phone. So, that's the reason why I am writing this article to solve this problem forever.
Here are 2 types of direct download links avilable. Check by by clicking one by one and you can see the difference between those links.
Now if you click on the first link, then it will redirect you to Google drive virus warning page instead of direct download, because this link is generated by a online tool. So now I request you to click 2nd download button to check the direct download with same APK file. Don't worry this is a apk file of Nothing Launcher, also available on play store (soon available for India).
After clicking on those buttons you can find that first link is not working directly download for large or apk files, but second link is perfectly working. This is because i am using special link in second button. You can also generate the one click download link or direct download link for Google drive.
