Gmail <> Loom: Embed video into your email

You can simply embed your Loom video into the body of your email in just 2 clicks.  📥

We wanted to enable more efficient and effective communication in a somewhat antiquated experience. So we created Loom's Gmail integration. 🎉

How it works 

You can paste a Loom link into your Gmail composer and it will automatically expand to display an embedded thumbnail. This is eye-catching and gives your recipient a preview of what's to come. 

To facilitate Gmail Link Expanding, you must have the Loom Chrome Extension installed. By having this installed, you unlock the ability for the Chrome Extension to recognize Loom links and display them as an embedded thumbnail.
