Web Tool Wednesday - Video Files in Gmail

No comments
Luckily while most of us were enjoying Spring Break last week, the folks at Google were still hard at work.  During that time, there was a nice G Suite update that makes previewing video attachments in Gmail much smoother and quicker. Previously, in order to view a video attachment in Gmail, you would have to download it to your computer and open it with a media player. But now when you open an email with video attachments, you will see a thumbnail of the video and have the ability to stream it, right from inside Gmail.

This feature uses the same Google infrastructure that powers YouTube, Google Drive, and other video streaming apps, so video is delivered at optimal quality and availability.
