Video (new Email Composer) Beta

  • Updated

Adding video content to your designs can be an effective way to engage your audience.

Please note that the new Email Composer is currently in Open Beta.

Adding Video Content Blocks in Email Builder

While embedding actual video in emails can be problematic due to limitations with email clients and data usage on mobile devices, the Email builder provides a visually effective alternative. This method links to the video rather than embedding it, which sidesteps many of the issues associated with embedding videos in emails.

How to Use Video Content Blocks

  1. Drag-and-Drop: Simply drag the 'Video' tile from the Content panel into your email layout.
  2. Enter URL: A prompt will ask you for a YouTube or Vimeo video URL. Upon entering a valid URL, a thumbnail of the video with an overlaid play icon will appear in the content block.
  3. Icon Customization: You can tailor the play icon's type, color, and size to better suit your email's overall design.
