This is one of the biggest areas of friction and user feedback for us at the moment as it’s so strikingly longer than other tools our team members are used to as well as a pet gripe of mine.
As an example, here are the three respective links for the same file
Dropbox (61 characters)-- https://www.dropbox.com/s/29ju8gx2w303pr2/test-image.png?dl=0
GSuite (82 characters)- https://drive.google.com/file/d/1U5O4R0F4anReDE7uFeG_mkf48jt0D0qO/view?usp=sharing
To echo what the latest commenters on that User Voice have said, there’s no way this can be considered a short link and the feature considered delivered. It’s 40% longer than GSuite and 127% longer than Dropbox.
