How do I share BT Cloud content with other people?

BT Cloud enables you to share multiple photos, videos and documents with friends and family. You can send a link to the people you want to share content with, which allows them to access the selected files. To stop sharing, cancel the link. This stops continued access to the shared content.

How do people access the content I've shared with them?

Once someone has received the shared link from you, clicking it will open a web browser where they'll be able to see the content you've shared with them. They can even download a copy of the content from the link.

2: Once you've selected the content, tap More and then select Share.

3: A link will be generated you can coy and share with family and friends, via Message, Mail, Facebook and more.
