Introducing the new Desktop app

A new and improved version of our Desktop App! 🚀 

Our desktop app has been completely redesigned to focus on the features that matter most to capture a Loom with confidence.

The Desktop app now also has a unified look and feel as our Chrome Extenstion so recording with Loom should feel familiar and easy no matter what recorder you choose.

Take a look below at what has changed!👇

⚠️ Please Note: This new version of the Desktop app is currently being rolled out to all users. It may not be your experience quite yet. 

New on the Loom Desktop App:

  • Re-designed Prerecording Menu

    Changing recording modes and checking your mic settings has never been easier than with our newly designed pre-recording menu.

  • Favorite features added to Pre-Recording Menu

    We have also moved our most valued features: Effects, Speaker Note, and Canvas to one place in the pre-recording menu for easy access. CleanShot

  • Hidden Controls

    You now have the option to hide your recording control menu from your final recording. ⚠️ The option to hide controls from the final recording is only available on MacOS 12.3 and Win10+.
