With BombBomb's Outlook add-in, Outlook users can record and send video emails from within their Outlook email server. There's no need to bounce back and forth between platforms.
You'll also receive real-time notifications when your recipients engage with your email. You'll get alerts when people open your email, play your video, or click your links — right as it's happening. Additionally, each video you record in Outlook is automatically saved to your BombBomb account. Never lose a video or miss a follow-up opportunity again.
Important Note: This add-in is compatible with Outlook desktop versions 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019. If you have an Outlook 365 account, you can download Outlook 2016 and use this add-in. If you are on a Mac computer or access Outlook on outlook.com, we recommend using BombBomb's Chrome extension.

Installing the Outlook add-in
Step 2: Once you've downloaded the add-in, restart your Outlook application. You will see a pop-up that explains you can now send video in your Outlook platform. Click the "Continue" button.
You will see another pop-up explaining that you will also be able to track your replies from your emails sent. Click the "Let's Get Started" button.
Step 3: You'll then receive a BombBomb pop-in prompting you to sign into your BombBomb account. Type in your BombBomb credentials and click the "Sign In" button.
Using the Outlook add-in
Once you've downloaded the Outlook add-in, you'll notice a couple changes in your Outlook email. First, you'll notice in the Home tab, you'll have a "Send Video" button with a recording icon. You can click this to immediately record a video and send it to a recipient. You will also have a "BombBomb" tab where you can access your BombBomb settings. On the right side of your screen, you will now have a tracking panel that will show you your tracking statistics from your sent Outlook emails.
Tracking: In your tracking panel, you will see each email you've sent and the last time it was opened, clicked, or played. It will also show you how many times each action has been taken (i.e., 3 plays). This tracking panel updates every 30 seconds, so you will receive tracking information in almost real-time.
Turning Tracking On or Off: In the BombBomb tab, you can turn on/off tracking for all of your emails, access your BombBomb settings, or log out of the BombBomb Outlook add-in.
Sending a Video: To send a video, you can either click on the "New Email" button or click the "Send Video" button. If you click "Send Video," it will bring up the recorder immediately. For this demonstration, we'll click the "New Email" button to show what you'll see if you decide to compose an email first.
When you open a new email, you'll see three buttons on the left side: "Record Video," which brings up the video recorder, "Video Library," which allows you to access other videos you've recorded, and the tracking button. You can click the tracking button to turn tracking on or off for this specific email. (To turn tracking on or off for ALL emails, you will need to go to the settings in the BombBomb tab.) Record your video, and send it off!
That's it — now you can begin recording and sending videos in Outlook!
