Instant video clips in email, courtesy Yarn

February 20, 2016

Mixmax is a communications platform that brings professional communication & email into the 21st century.

At Mixmax, we're all about making your conversations more effective and more expressive. That's why we're excited to announce a new 3rd-party app to effortlessly enrich your messages with video clips: Yarn.


Yarn is a new service that lets you share video clips from your favorite movies, tv shows, and music videos. Yarns add levity to your messages and help you strike the right tone, which isn't always easy in text-only communications. They're like GIFs on steroids, and our conversations are infinitely more fun because of them.

To insert a video clip that matches your messages instantly, type /yarn, then a search term in a Mixmax message window. You'll see a scrolling preview of proposed results and can easily select a Yarn to insert.


If you want a fuller experience, type /yarn, then enter to bring up the full search window.


To try out Yarn in your email, install it for free here. Then, send us your favorite Yarns to hello@mixmax.com! Yarn is also available for Slack and Facebook Messenger.

If you have thoughts on how we can make your emails more expressive and effective, we'd love to hear from you. Reach us on Twitter: @Mixmax.
