How do I start a recording? 

Note: in order to record, you will need to have Loom's extension correctly installed in your Google Chrome browser. 

You can start recording by clicking on the Loom extension like the image shows below:

You'll want to pay special attention to the Recording Settings that will appear. 

Here you can decide what to capture in your recording: 

  1. Screen & Cam: records your screen and camera  
  2. Screen Only: records just your screen with no camera
  3. Cam Only: records only your camera

For the options Screen & Cam and Screen Only, you will also have the option to decide whether if you want a Full Desktop or Current Tab recording. 

You will also see an Audio indicator which tells you if your microphone is enabled and capturing audio before you start recording. This helps you ensure recordings with sound 😁

Additionally, advanced option are provided where you can customise your microphone & camera inputs, and whether you'd like to show/hide your camera controls. 

Once you're satisfied with your Recording Settings, go ahead and click Start Recording

What's Next?

Happy Recording! 😃 🎥
