Loom is a communication tool for work based on instantly shareable videos. Users can record videos by capturing their screens or using their front-facing camera and add vocal comments. The videos can then be shared simply using a public link, which can be accessed without a loom account. Deleting videos is easy as well and it only needs a click of a button on the video page. It features ultra HD/4K video recording with a desktop application. Users can also share links to public folders with multiple videos inside it. Call-to-action buttons can be added to the videos and various recording tools like mouse emphasis, drawing, and custom recording dimensions are present. There are in-depth viewer insights available for data such as viewers and watched durations. Unlimited video storage is available as well and SSL encryption is deployed for enhanced data security. The software can also be easily integrated with Gmail and Slack.

I love how easy it is to record help videos, troubleshooting videos, and demos with Loom! I also love that I can simply share the URL with someone, and they can watch the recording instantly. I know some other softwares require you to login with your account or with a password in order to access to recording, but with Loom you do not need anything other than a browser to see the recording!
I can't think of any downsides to loom! So far I have never experienced any issues or bugs with it. I would say the only slight annoyance is that it sometimes logs me out of my account on my computer so I have to sign back in, but that is really not much of an issue!
There is no downside to trying out this product! It has only helped with my productivity and how I support my customers. I've also even recommended it to my customers to start using to help with their own troubleshooting!
I also love that you can choose to have your camera on or off when recording a Loom video, which I think adds a nice personal touch when recording videos for training purposes or for demos.
If you have never tried another software to screen record on, then I do not think you should look any further than Loom. It has everything you could ever need, and is extremely easy to use!
It's helping me with troubleshooting any issues my customers report.
I love how much time Loom saves me. It also helps create and build relationships that just an email can not do. Easy to use and makes responding to emails more personal and fun. The customers love it as well and it helps be create and build a better relationship with them. They get to know me personally and see my face and hear my voice. Often the people I help are too busy or unable to answer a phone call so this helps bridge that gap.
Honestly, nothing that I can think of or come across so far. The only minor dislike is their customer service. I reached out with some questions and initially got some help. I have some additional questions but have still not heard back from them on these new questions. I am still waiting for a response. I understand they are extra busy at this time and only able to help paying
Give it a try, it may seem weird at first but it becomes easier the more you use it. It will save you so much time and help you create relationships with your customers quicker.
It has saved me time in not having to send an email with a huge list of step by step directions and screenshots. I can record my response quickly and they can watch it quickly and see what to do instead of having to read what to do. Loom is amazing and I hear nothing but great things from my customers that I help. They appreciate the video over a long email.
I like how I can just record my entire screen while at the same time displaying my face on the same recording. I like how Loom allows one to chose between recording either the Full Desktop or the Current tab. This is important as it allows you to chose what you would like to cover when recording. Assuming I only wanted to record my current tab then that means I can just select on the Current Tab button and if I wanted to move across different tabs then I can chose Full Desktop. I also like how Loom sets a timer before it starts recording my screen. At least this gives me sometime to prepare myself. I like how every recording I do is saved on a central virtual location where I can download it for editing or any other thing I may want to do.
I do not like the fact that, for me to use Loom, I have to be connected to the Internet. Loom cannot function without internet. If you do not have internet connection your screens won't be recorded.
If you are thinking of using Loom for screen capturing, then free do so. This tool is free to use and it captures high quality images.
I am using Loom to record videos for my YouTube channel. I also use Loom to record videos of me demonstrating something and then share it with many people.
Very very east to use and share with customers and colleagues.
They are trying to add new features/UI and it is not making it as simple to create a video like before.
I can share my exact issues that I am running into or what I want to show in a video)that I can share in a simple link) rather than in a screenshot
I send a lot of email explanations for complex questions, using Loom I am able to show my customers exactly what I mean and walk them through the problem step by step. I love how quickly and easily I can share the videos with users and how I can move my video around the screen as I need to.
There are occasional glitches, for example, sometimes the video, especially in the large size, will freeze up or get stuck. When I navigate between tabs it also can take a moment to load, but nothing that completely hinders my use of the tool.
If you are answering questions over email, use Loom as well. If a picture(screenshot) speaks a thousand words, imagine what a video can do! Also, a huge plus is that the users don´t have to download the video, they can simply watch it online.
Personalized answers to complex questions.
It is the ease with which you can use it from your computer or with the google chrome extension, which gives you constant access
I've been using it for several months now, and I haven't had any problems with the program.
Since I recommend it, try it daily and get as much benefit out of it as possible.
It is an excellent digital tool that makes my life easier since it allows me to make good quality recordings of my computer screen and share the procedures with my friends, family, and other users.
Loom stands out for its simplicity, both in the creation of videos, and in their subsequent sharing. Other platforms require you to get your tutorial right in one take; Loom allows pausing. Likewise, while I have often had to wait for videos to process before sharing them, with Loom, videos are ready to share instantly, and can be shared via link, rather than requiring a file upload.
My only qualm with Loom would be that accessing your videos isn't intuitive at first.
Loom allows me to answer teacher, student, and parent questions quicker and more effectively than typing an email, and I can then save the video for when I inevitably get the same question again down the road. This saves me time, and the people that I'm helping gain more insight from watching me carry out a task than by me simply describing it.
A free application that allows you to record video--with face in a bubble--while explaining something on a screen. This is brilliant in terms of communication. Plus it can be connected to Slack. Love it.
Honestly, nothing. I am extremely impressed.
This is one of the easiest to use Videocapture tools I have seen, and the basics are free. There is an opportunity for branding at $12 a month, and the $8 a month includes a drawing tool. It has real possibilities for internal communications, education (I used to do college teaching--how I wish I had this!), and creating all kinds of troubleshooting mini-videos. Loom has set the bar high. Excellent
Sometimes you need to explain something to someone with a visual in front of you--a budget, a set of stats, anything. You get the best of both worlds with Loom. They see your face in a small bubble in the corner, and you both can focus on the numbers, chart, whatever. This system is so ridiculously easy to use that you can create a mini-video in a minute and send it to your student, colleague, employee, etc.
It’s easy to use and can be accessed via we browser.
I wish the free version allowed me to upload videos that I recorded on my phone or computer.
We use it to send monthly updates and screencast videos for prospecting to our clients. I love how everything is stored on Loom’s platform and that it’s so easy to use and access via the web.
I love how intuitive Loom is. It makes screen recording simple. I also love the added ability to include yourself in the screen recording. This makes creating virtual lessons or step by step instructions more engaging as the viewer can see your face and not just the screen you are sharing. Of course you can just record yourself or the screen if you prefer not to be seen.
The only thing I dislike about loom is the limited editing tools. Really the only available tools are a kind of clunky trimming tool and the ability to create a custom thumbnail. Making the trim tool more user friendly or adding additional tools could improve the program.
Loom makes distance learning easy. This year my school began by going straight to distance learning. While google meet is good for live meetings, it can be difficult to deliver information due to student’s unreliable internet connections. Also, posting powerpoints for students to view is just not engaging. Loom provides a service that allows me to deliver information in a much more engaging way.
