Google has made previewing video attachments in Gmail smoother and quicker in its latest upgrade.
Previously, to view a video attachment in Gmail, you had to download it to your PC and open it with a media player.
“Starting today, when opening an email with video attachments, you will see a thumbnail of the video and have the ability to stream it, right from inside Gmail,” said Google.
The feature uses the same Google infrastructure which powers YouTube and Google Drive.
This means the video is delivered at optimal quality.
