You can't.
You could upload an APK for them to download and test themselves but you would have to build the APK separately first.

Just put it on the arcade or newgrounds. I'm not sure if there are private settings in there but you could check.

Dropbox has changed and doesn't allow public/live linking anymore:
As noted here

Unless you are an existing paid/premium user... then the live linking will finish on 27 September this year. If you are a free user then they stopped that from working already.

I don't use Google Drive, so I'm not sure about that.

I use a hosting account on my domain to upload tests and things like that.

You can buy a domain and hosting package from places like GoDaddy for a very cheap price if you only need basic options.
