Quick announcement: we’ve just updated attachment fields to support playback of video files. So now, in addition to organizing your videos in your Airtable bases, you can also watch them inside your Airtable bases.

Just tested this again on the Airtable android app and it’s not fixed yet, I can’t play nor see thumbnail previews for videos (mp4) in Attachments. mp3 files will play. Gifs can play, but they also have no thumbnail previews. .

Android app is quite neglected compared to ios app.

Welcome to the Airtable Community @Aebatriai - we’re thrilled that you’re here!

As of right now, there isn’t a way to preview videos on Android. I know it’s not ideal, but there is a workaround that you can download the video and play on your phone from the base in the meantime.

This is something the team is aware of and I have escalated your feedback as well. We will be sure to update this thread with updates as we have them.
