Frequently Asked Questions

Currently in Shape, video images are not sendable in SMS messaging. The video will send as a link to play the video.

This is due to not embedding the video as an image. If it is not added as an image first, then there will be no video preview image.

This is due to inserting the video as an image but not inserting the link so that when clicked, it will take the customer to the video.
