Introducing Our Redesigned Desktop App: Record more effective Loom videos, faster

With this update, we’re also unifying the Loom look and feel across our most popular recorders. Whether you use our Chrome extension or desktop apps (and many of you record with both!), creating looms should feel familiar—and now, easier than ever.

Loom’s 2023 survey of 1,500 U.S. office workers uncovered new and surprising insights into how people communicate, miscommunicate, and connect at work. The resulting report, “Mind the Communication Gap,” shows growing communication redundancies among office workers, underscoring a massive opportunity for business leaders to increase productivity, morale, and resource efficiency with effective communication tools.

Today. we’re launching a completely redesigned and rebuilt version of Loom’s Chrome Extension. This new version — which you can download here — started as a need to align with Chrome’s impending Manifest V3 migration, but it quickly became a much larger opportunity to deliver net-new features, improve performance, and make it even easier for our users to record with Loom.

The old adage “the work speaks for itself” isn’t as apt as it once was. Odds are you will have to speak for your work, provide feedback for someone else’s work, and decide what you should work on as a team. To do that, you need to be able to communicate clearly and efficiently. Here are four pillars of effective communication that you can use to make a bigger impact at work.

From keeping teams connected across time zones, to cutting out the maybe-not-so-essential meetings that have a way of sticking on calendars, to staying focused on the work that’s important — Loom users thrived this year. Let’s take a look back at the year and see the story behind the stats.
