Make your video more personal by adding your own logo and creating a custom thumbnail. Add clarity for viewers by including closed captions, offering transcripts in 50+ languages, and eliminating background noise.

Share videos instantly

Choose what you want to record and present! You can show, draw, and illustrate your points.

Share your instant link when you finish with Loom AI’s auto message composer. Teams can collaborate with you right on the video page.

You can also collect email addresses to identify who's watched your video, enhancing internal collaboration or supporting prospecting efforts.

Video messages aren’t limited to one-way communication. With Loom, they are a collaboration tool.

There is no learning curve to Loom. That means your team and contacts can quickly send videos of their own, too.

Viewers can make their voices heard by leaving timestamped comments and emojis, and even reply with their own videos.

Video hosting simplified

With Loom HQ, you can upload Zoom recordings and other platforms to build a hub. Your videos are easily referenced for streamlined training and communication.

Use tags and folders to organize content so the team can quickly find what they need. The platform puts you in charge of privacy settings—you choose who sees your videos.
