Loom is a new kind of work communication tool that helps you get your message across through instantly shareable videos, now available inside Slack.
Loom is incredibly useful. We all now the impact a video can have but it was not even thinkable to use videos for daily and quick conversations. Loom managed to make it easy with a smart integration in our workflow. We don't use it super frequently yet but as the team is going to be more and more remote, it is a no brainer.Pros:
Easy of use, integrated in our daily workflow, number of use cases,..Cons:
A youtube integration would be great
I absolutely love loom! Saved me so much time recording video tutorials for my clients! Just click record and send a link after, record your voice and webcam if you want to. Before that I was recording with Quicktime player, then compressing videos, uploading them to Google drive, total hassle!Pros:
Records available immediately, free of charge, ability to download videosCons:
Dependance on Google Chrome, but I have heard they want to create an independent app
Loom delivers hands over fist value. I've used it for communicating with remote team members, feedback on design work, pitch presentations, recruiting efforts, and even communicating with family / friends. Slack integration is freaking epic, so excited to use. Great job Loom team!Pros:
Fantastic for remote teams / clients, simple to use, and saves you (a TON) time.Cons:
None. I want to pay for this service but I cannot.
As an early adopter and a user of this product, the team truly has made this product better with each iteration. They both responsive to feedback and have done a good job providing use cases to enhance HOW to use Loom over time. This Slack integration is a natural next step for Loom and as I would expect from the Loom team, it is very robust! Well done!Pros:
Phenomenal recording quality, great support, ease of use, excellent UICons:
I have used Loom to record video for my brand. Tutorials for my 9-5. I've recommended Loom to my co-workers because it is so easy to download and use. Awesome app.Pros:
Easy to make tutorials. I can even see someone using this for Youtube.Cons:
I haven't experienced any. I've been using it for over a year. I've recommended Loom where ever I work.
- Loom allows us to show how our product works to prospects (we're closing more deals and beating the competition)
- It also allows us to train users on our product (we onboard large organizations and it's tricky to do web based training but loom allows us to create sweet little videos)Pros:
Easy to create product recordings, great for sales demo, product demos, and training. It's a 10/10.Cons:
Loom is pretty awesome, I've used it to conduct usability tests and couldn't believe how powerful a chrome extension could be. I had an issue with a video recorded muted but I will still continue using it for sure.Pros:
Really easy to set up and useCons:
a video recorded was muted
Look is an essential part of my work now. I use it primarily for QA videos that I share in Slack or link in Jira. I have several colleagues who have begun using it, too.Pros:
Ease of use, Slack integration, routine improvements and updates, responsive developers, quite a lot of features for a browser extensionCons:
I'd love it for Firefox, too, as I sometimes switch browsers, but not much on the con side really.
An amazing tool that is completely free! (premium features coming soon though).
It would be nice to be able to change the shape of the webcam video recording (square or rectangle) instead of the circlePros:
Easy to use, Fast, Reliable, Possibility to export video without watermark, FreeCons:
Having been using this for nearly an year now. Use this for customer success and support, and when I put in the links in Intercom chat, the video gets embedded and can be directly played in Chat.
Also great Slack, and Jira integrations. Not a fan of all the new Avatar stuff since that seems a bit hamfisted. If you don't choose an picture, a grey circle just remains on the bottom left of all your videos by default. Having to deselect the avatar option manually isn't great.
But, Loom delivers on what it promises. Makes recording video super easy and sharing it even more so.Pros:
Easy, Free, and SlickCons:
Limited Video Quality and No emphasis Features
There are so many amazing things I could say about Loom in general, but I'll stick to Loom for Slack. This integration has been handy for team communication. It takes less time than writing an email and significantly less time than a meeting to update multiple people at once.Pros:
Easy to start using instantly to communicate with the team fast and in a personal way.Cons:
None so far
I love using Loom to report and reproduce software bugs for our development team. It has significantly decreased the amount of time needed to explain the issues which in turn helps them get resolved quicker.Pros:
Very quick and easy to use with a surprising amount of customization.Cons:
Loom has helped our team stay up to date on the latest news around the company. We use it to post a weekly update that any one can watch (whether in or out of office) at their convenience. It keeps things human and I love how my team feels more informed and engaged as a result.Pros:
Easy recording, and easy to share in a target Slack channel or private channel.Cons:
A bit nitpicky, but it does not autofill emojis when you type something like :tada:
