Google recently rolled out an update making changes to its Gmail service. The new update will allow Gmail user to watch videos without downloading it. Previously Gmail users had to download a video file that came in attachment with an email. After this update and video attachments will be streamed directly making it easier and convenient for Gmail users.
Gmail users will see a thumbnail of video that comes in an attachment along with an option to directly stream it. Google on their official blog stated that “This feature uses the same Google infrastructure that powers YouTube, Google Drive, and other video streaming apps, so video is delivered at optimal quality and availability.”
Google has been making some changes to its Gmail service. Gmail also introduced a feature to send and receive money using a Gmail account. Earlier this month Google doubled its attachment size limit from 25MB to 50MB. Gmail users who need to attach a larger file can still use Google Drive as the outgoing attachment is still 25MB, it is expected that after this update the outgoing attachment limit will also be increased.
If a user tries to send an attachment larger then 25MB the attachment is automatically saved to Google Drive and Google shared the link in attachment. Google is continuously improving its service for Gmail and these changes will definitely improve user experience.
