Improve comprehension and retention by adding icons, text, images, and links under the Advanced Editing menu.

Interactions allow creators to insert a "card" with any combination of:

  • title

  • button with a link

  • an icon to match the message

Additionally, card viewing settings can be adjusted two different ways. One to make cards fully visible, or a second option to only make cards visible when the viewer clicks to expand it.

โฌ†๏ธ Upload Video Files

Upload video files to your Weet videos with the Business and Enterprise versions! Each video file is added as it's own separate section in your Weet video.
