Created my first video using Google Pixel 6. When I wanted to either send a text or email the video, I received a message the video is to large.  I’ve looked into resizing the video and have find nothing helpful, except to use various apps or Google Drive.  Being technically challenged, I found things difficult.  Any assistance is appreciated.

Hello Susan,

The trick is to not share the actual video, but just a link to the video. Anyone who can click on the link, can then view the video as long as they have an Internet connection. Since you have a Pixel, Google Photos is your photo/video manager and it has the ability to make a link, then you just paste the link into the text or email. 

Here’s a video to show you how: 561.GP-Sharing photos with a link

Let me know if this works for you.
