    It just works and the sharing and commenting functionalities are flawless.


    Sometimes there are bugs when recording on Chrome but this might have been resolved with the new releases.

    Before Loom, sharing a video of a product bug was a daunting tasks. You would need to either use Quicktime on Mac or some other complicated software to record your screen (maybe if your lucky the audio would work) and that would give you a big old 500+ MB video file for a decent sized video. At this point you lose faith since you need to share this and it's not getting any smaller even if you try all the compression tricks. You end up uploading it for a half hour to G Drive and send a link to your co-worker... Now you can literally click the Chrome extension, click start, record and then share. DONE.

    Sleek & bloody easy to use


    No outlook integration

    I do site development meaning I design sewers and set the finished grade. Sometimes the client wants to see what things will look like as we’re working. Autocad doesn’t allow you to export your object viewer (where you see things in 3D) so we used to export to sketch-up and it took hours to tinker and get things to look how they did before exporting. We rarely did it because of how long it took. Now we do it often to show clients that want to be more involved in the design but cant visualize what we put in paper as well. Slowly becoming a powerful tool to help us serve our clients.

this is what i asked Santa for, I guess I'll need to ask for a new Christmas present! absolutely love Loom. have used it to walk Commaful users through so many things and show little tricks. I've used Loom to give instructions to people, demo things, and show bugs. It's incredible and the desktop version will make this even easier
