Hello, is it possible to share a video as an announcement post and have the video play inline in the post? For example, I shared a Vimeo link but it only pasted the URL and not the video itself. It sometimes works for regular update posts, but for announcement post it doesn't work at all. Any advice on how to do this?

@AllisonCraig The preview card for video is only available on regular posts in Old Yammer, or in regular posts in New Yammer - including those marked as an Announcement.

@Kevin Crossman thanks for your reply. So just to confirm, only in the new yammer, you can include an inline video in an announcement post?
