How to react to videos with emojis and in-video comments

Express yourself at the right moment. 🙌

In-video comments and emojis make it easy to respond and react to a specific moment in a video as you watch it. This helps you be precise in your reactions.

You can add more emoji reactions by selecting the smile icon under the video. All emoji reactions and comments will appear on the video's timeline as you leave them. Hover over the comment to expand it.

In-video comments also allow you to:

  • Record a comment to respond to a loom with a loom. Your loom comment will be listed below the video with all the other comments.

  • @mention other workspace members in comments to help keep your team in the loop! You can mention a team member by adding @ and typing in their name. Any teammates you mention will be notified.

  • Use comments as chapter breaks in your video, marking transition points between topics.

In-video comments make it possible to comment from embedded videos, so you can react wherever you're watching; no need to go into the video share page. If you're watching an embedded video, the comments will appear in the video player itself.

FAQ 

What happens if I react to a video while not signed into a Loom account?

If you reply to a video while not signed in, the comment or emoji reaction will appear as "anonymous." You'll be given the option to manually enter your name when you react.

What are anonymous views?
In order to identify who watched your video, the viewer must also have a Loom account and be logged in when they watch the video - otherwise they will show up as anonymous. There is no way to identify an anonymous viewer unless they choose to manually leave their name with a reaction or comment.
Can I disable commenting and emoji reactions?

Yes! Turn off commenting, emoji reactions, and more in your video settings.
