Creating a bucket

Granting access to selected users

You can give access to a specific user to a document by granting READ access to the email address registered with Google. The Web URL from the General tab in the Info window with the format https://sandbox.google.com/storage/<container>/<file> will verify access to the resource using the Google Account login credentials.

Refer also to Sharing files using Google Storage.
