Gmail Now Allows You to Stream Video Attachments on the Desktop

Google is bringing out a little but useful change to Gmail’s desktop version today. And, if you send or receive video attachments quite frequently via Gmail, then it certainly is a great news for you. Because, from now on, you will be able to stream all videos on the page, instead of downloading them on your system’s hard drive.

The feature has been announced today and it will only be available to the desktop users. The ultimate aim of Gmail’s latest feature is to make it easier for a user to check out the content of a video attachment by utilizing the streaming preview option within the email.

Well, we truly believe that the feature can save a lot of precious time by enabling a user to decide whether or not the video attachment he received is worthy enough to download. However, Gmail still doesn’t allow you to exceed the limitation of 50MB available space, but you always have Google Drive to upload bigger files.
