What type of posts are supported?
According to Google, in addition to posts that contain text and links, the following additional types of posts are supported as embedded posts:
- Posts with images – The post will render with the image. Clicking the image directs the visitor to the image view on Google+.
- Posts with videos – The post will render with the video. Clicking the video will play the video within the embedded post. (Currently this featured is deprecated )
- Posts with links to a community – Your visitors can click through to view the community as they would in the stream.
This works for Gifs too!
