BombBomb offers plenty of integrations for you to choose from, but when it comes to integrations for our most-used email platforms, it can get a little confusing. Which ones should you use? Which ones can you use? Which integration is going to fit best into your workflow and give you the best benefit? Let's explore our Gmail, Chrome, and Outlook integrations to settle these questions.
Read on to gain a better understanding of what these three classic integrations are for and which one might be best for you!
The BombBomb Gmail integration is a connection between BombBomb and Gmail that works when sending emails. In short, it brings the best parts of Gmail into BombBomb. This integration is best for you if you are a heavy Gmail user, spend a majority of your time within Gmail for business purposes, and/or send a majority of your emails using the Gmail platform.
When you connect the Gmail integration with your BombBomb account, BombBomb actually uses Gmail servers to send your emails. You just need to ensure that the email address you use for BombBomb is the same one as your Gmail address so the two accounts can associate when connecting.
Also, if you also download the Chrome extension, the Gmail integration works in conjunction with this and can allow you to schedule emails. These emails can be sent out at a later date and time of your choosing, and they will also have tracking capabilities. You'll be able to see who has opened your emails in real-time.

The BombBomb Chrome extension is similar to the Gmail integration, but vice versa. It brings the best parts of BombBomb right into your Chrome browser. With the Chrome extension, you get tracking capabilities on all emails that are sent from your Gmail account, as well as something called the BombBomb PowerWheel. This integration is best for you if you are a daily Chrome user, regularly work in various platforms, and want access to robust BombBomb functionality when sending video emails.
With the Chrome extension, you can record and send videos right from your Chrome browser - without having to keep the BombBomb application open. You'll receive email notifications that will notify you of email opens, video plays, and link clicks.
However, if you use Gmail to send emails, then you will also get our BombBomb PowerWheel! With this, you can access your video library, send pre-recorded videos, create snippets, set reminders, schedule an email (only works when Gmail integration is connected), add a "reply with video" option, and turn on/off tracking for individual emails.

Our newest Outlook add-in allows Outlook users to record and send video email right from within their Outlook email server. There's no need to bounce back and forth between platforms; now with the BombBomb add-in, do everything you need to build relationships right from your Outlook account. This integration is best for you if you are a desktop Outlook user (versions 2010, 2013, or 2016), you use Outlook to regularly email clients or connections, or your company requires you to send business communication through Outlook only.
With the BombBomb add-in, Outlook users also receive real-time notifications when their recipients engage with their email. You'll get alerts for 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 right to your BombBomb account. You'll never lose a video or miss a follow-up opportunity.

We hope these explanations of our classic email-based integrations are helpful to you. Of course, these are only recommendations - if you have and use all three of these platforms, you can absolutely use all three of these integrations! These integrations are available for you to use at your leisure, and it's completely up to you how you do it.
