Ever wish that your Google Docs could include videos? Whether it's including how-to videos in onboarding docs for new hires, walk-through tutorials on how to use a feature, or agency video drafts in creative brainstorm docs, videos have become one of the best methods to convey information in an immersive way. Although quite a few collaboration platforms do not support this feature, Lark allows users to embed videos in docs! 🎉

How to insert videos into your Docs

By having the ability of inserting videos in docs, you no longer have to send a bunch of separate files along with docs—view and visualize everything in one doc. Let's see how it works!

When inserting an online video, simply paste a video URL's into your document, and choose what type of view you would like: card or preview. Lark will then automatically generate video previews, which you can then resize. Lark supports various video sources, like YouTube and Vimeo, so you can choose your content flexibly.

Lark also supports local video files to be uploaded into Docs. Drag and drop your video into the doc, and Lark will upload it for you. The video will even have playback speed options, audio settings, and allow you to resize it as well. It's super easy in Lark!

What are the benefits of embedded videos in Lark Docs?

  • Enhanced Collaboration: Real-time co-authoring enables teams to work together seamlessly. With embedded videos, team members can watch and discuss content simultaneously, fostering better teamwork and idea-sharing.

  • Increased Engagement: Embedded videos capture the audience's interest, encouraging them to spend more time with the content. This enhanced engagement leads to improved comprehension and knowledge absorption.

  • Time Efficiency: Videos allow for quick information consumption, saving time compared to reading lengthy text-based explanations. Teams can achieve higher productivity and a smoother workflow.

  • Fluid Viewing Experience: Videos can be played directly within Lark Docs, providing an uninterrupted viewing experience. Users need not navigate external websites, maintaining focus within the collaborative environment.

Incorporating embedded videos in documents is essential for modern collaboration. With remote work on the rise, embedded videos also bridge the gap among geographically dispersed teams, making collaboration more efficient and effective too.

With Lark, easily insert videos inside documents with a user-friendly interface. Now, communication and collaboration have just become so much easier. Interested in trying it out? Sign up for Lark for free today!
