This guide describes setting your store's Video with text overlay section to add a video overlaid with text to store pages. Use the section to provide customers with information about your brand, describe products, or welcome customers to your store.
When low power mode is enabled on Apple iOS devices, the Safari browser won't play the video inside a Video with text overlay section. Instead, add a fallback image to the section. The fallback image displays whenever the video does not load or play. To add a fallback image, refer to the Section settings table in Step 4 (below).
