Have you ever received some MP3 songs and YouTube videos that were forwarded by your friends via email? If yes, then did you know that you can actually play them right within your inbox? If you’re using Gmail, then you can just click on the YouTube video attached to your email to play it. No need to open a separate tab.
Now, what if you want to compile all of those songs and videos that you’ve received? Can you also convert your inbox into a cool and elegant playlist? Well, that is possible but you’ll have to use a third-party web app.
How to play music from Gmail Inbox
- Open Chrome or any other web browser (ex. Firefox, Safari, Opera).
- Click here  to go to “Play My Inbox” – a free web app that collects music and music video links from your Gmail inbox.
- Once you’re on Play My Inbox, simply click the red “Play My Inbox” button then log in using your Gmail account.
