Adding Video Inserts on Targeted Slides in Your Presentation

In-app Video Inserts are supplementary videos that automatically play in-between slides. This is a great feature to have when creating your sales pitch video, as it allows optional videos to be presentations that viewers can skip at anytime. This gives your potential clients a more interactive and personalized experience.

Important: Video Inserts are only viewable for video presentations uploaded in the cloud directly from the app. Recorded video presentations saved locally will not show the video inserts.
