Getting started with the new features

The new Loom features will help your team stay organized, connected and up to date. 🚀

Loom is building a whole new way for you to find and organize your videos, a home for all of your video communication. 

Visit your new Library to find:

  • Powerful search to easily find your videos - you can search the video name, tag or phrases mentioned in the transcript. 
  • Notifications center to provide focused, contextual updates with transcript snippets and in-line comment replies.
  • One-click video posting to bring transparency and make it easy to share a video with your team. 

⚠️ Important: This article covers our new features. If you are currently on our Legacy UI, stay tuned.

New sections: 

    • Library: This will display all of your Loom videos + all Posted Loom videos and folders from Workspace members. The videos that once lived in your Team Library exist in the Library tab.
    • Created by me: A designated place to see all the videos you have created, this includes both your posted and not posted videos.
    • Posted: All videos you create will still be private by default unless they are Posted to your workspace. When a video is posted everyone in your workspace will be able to view it and it will appear on your Profile.
    • Folders: All old Personal Workspace and Team Workspace folders will live here.
    • Archive: Loom videos you no longer want to display in the places above.

Tags You can add tags to videos you'd like to revisit later. Tags allow you to add context so your team can discover relevant Looms. You can follow tags for organic, crowd-sourced organization. Loom with intelligently surface the important videos to the top.

💡 Proliferation of tags (#bugs, #bug, #qa) makes them less valuable for curated organization.
