How to use Loom's different capture modes

Choose the capture mode that works for you. 🎥

When recording with the Loom desktop app or Loom Chrome extension you can choose between 3 capture modes: Screen and Camera, Screen Only, and Camera Only.


1. Screen and Camera

This will capture your screen, or chosen window, along with your camera bubble.


You can also swap to display your avatar:
If you're feeling a little camera-shy, you can switch to display your avatar instead. This adds a personal touch when you don't feel like being in front of the camera.

How to do this:

  1. Hover over your camera bubble,
  2. Click the 👤 icon to turn on your avatar, and then the camera icon to return back to camera mode, as shown below:


2. Screen Only 

Narrate what is on your screen, without your camera bubble visible.



3. Camera Only  

Cam only capture mode allows you to present directly to the camera.
