Loom device compatibility

Minimum system requirements in order to use the Loom desktop app. 🤝 

Recording multiple streams of video alongside audio can be taxing on your computer. For this reason, we've put together some minimum system requirement guidelines to ensure your device and Loom's compatibility. 

⚠️ Anything less than the below will not support the successful operation of the Loom desktop app.  

Desktop app:

Operating System Requirements


Windows7 or above (64-bit only)
Intel Pentium 4 processor or later that's SSE2 capable
With at least 512 MB of RAM (at least 4GB recommended)
MS Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 64 bits [Download here]
Media Feature Pack - Windows 10 N versions Only [Download here]


OSX 10.11 or above (64-bit only)
With at least 512 MB of RAM (at least 4GB recommended)

What if my device is 32-bit?

Although you can't use the Loom desktop app, you can still record via our Loom Chrome extension

Do you support Linux or Chrome OS?
Unfortunately, no. We'd love to bring these to the Loom platform, but at the moment we only have  Windows and Mac desktop apps. You can check out our public roadmap here

Happy recording 🎥 😄
