What Can I Embed into Notion?

Notion supports embedding a wide variety of content types and services directly into its pages, allowing users to integrate and view external content seamlessly within their Notion workspace.

How to Embed Content in Notion

To embed content into Notion, you can either use the 'Embed' option or specific commands for common embed types. Here's how:

  1. Click the '+' that appears to the left when you hover over a new line in Notion. Choose 'Embed' or one of the common embed types listed.
  2. In the menu that appears, paste the content's URL or embed link.
  3. You can also use '/embed' to upload and display your own image, audio, video, or file. Select 'Upload' and choose the file from your computer.

Note: Some websites prohibit their content from being embedded elsewhere. If you receive a 'Failed to Load' error, that's why.
