How to use the recording timer

Understand your account's recording limits. ⏰

Loom Starter and Starter Plus users have a 5-minute recording duration limit, and Education users have a 45-minute recording limit. There is no recording duration limit for Loom Business and Enterprise users, but we will check in after 2 hours to ensure you're still intentionally recording. 

As you're recording, you'll notice a small timer located under the Stop button on the left-hand side as you're recording. The timer will be defaulted to on, meaning it will always appear in all recordings (just like the stop button), but it can be turned off in your desktop preferences so that it only shows when hovering. The timer will start at 5:00 and count down until you reach 0:00, at which point your recording will end. Once the video ends, your video share page will open. 


If you're a Creator on a Business or Enterprise plan, you'll see the timer as well, but it will start from 0:00 and count up to help you keep track of your video length. You don't have a recording duration limit.

What is my video storage limit? 

How long can I keep my videos on Loom? 

For as long as you'd like. There is no expiration date for your videos. They'll be available until you decide to delete them. Enjoy! 

How long can my videos be? 

If you're a Loom Starter or Starter Plus user, your video length can be up to 5 minutes. If you're a Loom Education, Business, or Enterprise user, your video length limit is unlimited. However, we check if you're still recording after 2 hours. If you don't confirm, your video will automatically finish.
