Pre-Recorded Video Messages

The Loom app is a video recorder that allows you to communicate better through instantly shareable video. A web browser add-on, this multimedia software lets you narrate your message by recording using your front-facing camera. It is a new communication tool with no limitation. 

Alternative Way Of Communication

As mentioned, Loom is capable of capturing videos from computers through front-facing cameras. The app comes with easy to use features allowing even the novice users to utilize its full capacity with a shorter learning curve. You can open their computer’s camera, record narrations, and share them to their recipients. It produces faster and clearer delivery of messages through video clips, making it ideal for working with online collaborative projects. Setting up is also easy. Users need only to open the extension by clicking the icon on the top-right corner of their web browsers. Pressing the Start Recording button will enable the app.

The Loom app comes with three types of capture options, namely Screen & Cam, Screen Only, and Cam Only. The first two options share the currently open full desktop or tab where users can turn on or off the microphone audio. There are also advanced options that allow you to adjust the camera and microphone source. During the recording session, a tab displays the movable camera bubble with options to cancel, pause, or finish the recording. All recordings are processed and saved to the Live Recording Page where users can check the recorded footage. You can also rename, trim, or encrypt any live video. To share the video online, you only need to copy the link and paste it on your chosen platform. 

The Loom app allows integration with productivity platforms like Typeform, Dropbox, Shopify, Google, Slack, Jira, Zendesk, and more. However, users must note that the extension can only store up to 100 videos

More than Screen Capturing

For more advanced features, users may avail the monthly Pro Premium version. This version of the Loom app records HD video clips up to 4K at the same time comes with an unlimited number of recordings. Users can also open exclusive recording tools like Drawing Tools, Mouse Click Emphasis, and Custom Recording Dimensions. There are also extra editing suites such as Call-To-Action replies, Custom Thumbnails, and Custom Access.

    by Amanda Rivera

    Loom is a good choice for those who have low end PC. I love it because it is one of the least resource hungry screen recorders. ScreenRec and Loom are good choices who like simple and efficient user interface.
