What is CloudApp for Gmail?
Our Google Chrome Extension allows you to paste a link to your drop directly into Gmail and have an immediate, automatic thumbnail of your content display.
In order to see the thumbnail of your content in Gmail, what we call 'unfurling', you'll need to install our CloudApp for Chrome Extension.
The Chrome Extension helps you take any CloudApp link that you've created and magically change it into a rich thumbnail. You can consider the Chrome Extension either a 'helper' or a lightweight version of CloudApp for Mac and Windows. Other benefits of the Chrome Extension include full page screenshots, webcam recording, and tab and full screenshots.
The 3 steps to do this are:
1) Create a recording or screenshot.
2) Install the Chrome Extension for CloudApp.
3) Paste the link into Gmail and watch the magic!
