The Sendspark Gmail extension makes it easy to record share videos right from Gmail emails. Watch the video, or read the article below!

Before you get started:

Please install the Sendspark Chrome Extension to use the Gmail integration.

As long as you have the Chrome Extension installed, you’ll automatically be able to access Sendspark from Gmail.

1. Click the Sendspark Icon in Gmail

Create a new email in Gmail. You’ll see the Sendspark logo appear in the options at the bottom of your email draft.

Note: you must have the Sendspark chrome extension installed and be using a Chrome browser to see the Sendspark icon.

2. Record a New Video

Click Record new video.

This will launch the Sendspark Chrome Extension, so you can record a video of yourself or your screen.

Alternatively, you can choose to insert your last recording, or view your video library on Sendspark.

3. Complete Recording

To end your video, click the Sendspark Chrome Extension icon on the top right of your browser.

This will complete your video recording, and launch a modal for you to preview your video before sharing.

4. (Optional) Edit Video Page in Sendspark

You can customize your video before sharing it by clicking Edit Page.

This will open your video in a new window, where you can edit the video landing page or video thumbnail.

Note: When you edit the page, you’ll leave Gmail and go to Sendspark. Now, instead of inserting your video in Gmail, you'll need to copy and paste your video into Gmail.

5. Insert Your Video in Gmail

Click Insert Video to place your video in your email draft.

Your recipients will see an animated GIF preview of your video, and be able to click to watch the full video in their browser.

Happy Recording!
