While you're working on a blog post, website page, landing page, or email in HubSpot, you can see a preview of how your content would render on different device types. You can also test personalization or smart content by previewing your content as a specific contact.

How responsive design works

All HubSpot drag and drop templates contain media queries that adjust your content so it fits on different screen sizes. Responsive content won't look identical on every device type. For example, an image that's set to fill a background may be cropped differently to fit on different screen sizes. Learn more about common questions about responsive design.

Please note: custom coded templates aren't responsive by default. Website developers can use the CMS Developer Documentation to make sure the templates they build are responsive.
