I am using teams to alert a small team to security events. The users prefer videos to tell exactly what is happening in the feed. Is a link to the feed the best way to get this to my users or is there an embedded way to show it within the Teams feed? Maybe as an attachment to a webhook?

There is a way to show a video directly within Teams in a popup window using our Task Module feature, but if that's the only thing the app would do that's a lot of work for just that. A link to the video that opens a browser tab is the simplest.

@Bill Bliss Hi Bill, can you please provide an update on whether the user voice embed media with 730 votes will be incorporated into teams. One of the main reasons our business has started using Workplace by Facebook is due to this. Other platforms are able to play videos from within the conversations and chats. Is it extremely difficult to incorporate a media player in the conversations tab seeming teams already has one built in?
