New Video Preview Allows Viewing of Videos from within an Email

In an effort to make sharing content via email easier and more convenient, Mail2World has introduced a new Video Preview feature to its WebMail v12 platform that allows users to view video links directly from within any email message.  Video Preview was added because of the growing trend of users sharing and viewing online videos.  By the end of 2017, watching videos will account for 74% of all online traffic.


The Video Preview feature displays playable thumbnails of all videos at the bottom of the email, under the Shared Videos section.  When clicked, video thumbnails will expand into larger viewing screens for an enhanced user experience.  Video Preview feature works with many video sites, including YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and other top video sharing sites.


Users can easily embed video links into emails by pasting the links directly into the body of the email. The WebMail V12 platform will automatically convert those links into clickable thumbnails once the “Send” button is clicked.  Email recipients will then simply scroll to the bottom of the emails to view and play the video.


Mail2World recognizes that users view, share and upload videos regularly as part of their online activities. This feature makes it easier to share and watch videos without users having to leave their inboxes.  This added convenience enables them to get through the messages more efficiently and to stay productive. Video Preview is one of the many highly-sought features that help improve the user experience.
