LOOM 2.0

TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

RECORD VIDEOS AND SHARE RIGHT FROM YOUR BROWSER. Free | www.useloom.com There are tools avail­able to record screens and we­b­cam videos, but hardly any are as easy to use as Loom. It’s a great Chrome plugin if you need to make pre­sen­ta­tions, sub­mit as­sign­ments, ad­ver­tise your brand or sim­ply use it for per­sonal videos.

In­stal­la­tion is as easy as click­ing to down­load, but you will need to sign up with ei­ther your Google ac­count or with Out­look. That done, just click Record to be­gin. It works on any tab you’re on and you can choose to cap­ture the screen, as well as au­dio and we­b­cam, or screen only with your nar­ra­tion in the back­ground. And the best part is that the con­trol but­tons at the bot­tom of the screen are vis­i­ble only to the user and won’t ap­pear in the fi­nal video. It’s pos­si­ble to pause or delete and start from scratch to en­sure you’re happy with the fi­nal re­sults. That done, the video gets saved to your ac­count and is ac­ces­si­ble via a web link. Al­though Loom is free to in­stall and use, you can only record five-minute videos with lim­ited stor­age. But re­fer a few peo­ple and, if they sign up, you are au­to­mat­i­cally up­graded to the premium ser­vice with no lim­i­ta­tions and no ex­tra charges.
