loomSDK FAQ

Bring Loom straight to your work app. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

With the loomSDK public beta, developers can add screen and cam recording to their own products – all free. The SDK enables your users to record, embed, view, and interact with Loom videos directly within web apps – adding clarity and context to any workflow.

What is the loomSDK?

The loomSDK includes the embedSDK and the recordSDK.

The embedSDK is available today. It provides basic unfurling capabilities. For example, when a Loom user pastes a Loom link in an app using the embedSDK the video unfurls and is viewable in line and in context for anyone else on the team.

The recordSDK allows developers to add a Loom record button into any app. Any user of any work app that integrates with the loomSDK can start recording in a few clicks without signing up or downloading anything. You can register here.

Together the recordSDK and embedSDK allow users to complete the core Loom workflow in a third-party app from recording, previewing, embedding, to interacting with looms.

More SDKs will be added in the future.

How do I register for the public beta?

If you would like to build with the loomSDK you can register for the public beta here.

How hard is it to implement?

It's fast to implementβ€”you'll just need to add a few lines of code to your platform to get the record button set up. Once it's there, your users will be able to record, preview, insert, watch and share Looms in your app.

Is it free?

The loomSDK is free for partners. New users using Loom for the first time in a partner app (via loomSDK) get five complimentary recordings without having to sign up or download anything. If they want to keep recording, we prompt them to sign up for our free Starter plan so they can continue recording with Loom and access and organize all of their videos in the Loom Workspace.

Which apps are using the SDK?

Trello, Miro, Linear, MarkUp, Hugo, Trainual, and hundreds of apps are building with the loomSDK to bring video messaging into their apps. See the early list here.
