Composing an email in Gmail, I can insert photos from Google Photos as attachments or links easily. But videos in my Google Photos account do not show in the list of media... is there a way to share a video in an email as easily as a photo?

When you have your email open, look at the bottom of your settings bar. On the right-hand side, there should be a button called "Insert Photo". After clicking on that, there should be a heading called "Google Photos".

    as I said, this only shows photos not videos for some reason.

  • I think it would be easier if you upload the video to Google Drive and use the "Google Drive" button to insert the video.
