THE biggest difference is our dna.

First, we’d like to give a big shoutout to the team at Otter.ai. They built a powerful note-taking app to record, transcribe, and share voice conversations.

If you’re here evaluating Claap vs. Otter.ai then you’re already doing the right thing by finding a product that can help you make the most of your meetings.

So what’s the difference between Claap and Otter.ai?

VOICE RECORDER vS. ALL-IN-ONE VIDEO WORKSPACE

The founding team at Otter.ai initially built a personal meeting assistant that helps you easily record voice conversations during a meeting, extract notes and share them with your teammates. The product records voices, but not videos.

The founding team at Claap built a platform to solve one of the biggest issues of the new hybrid work era: siloed communication and slow decision-making (think back-to-back meetings or endless messaging threads). Claap combines many tools into one video workspace, unifying your meeting recording, screen recording, and video wiki, and unlocking a new level of efficiency and alignment.

One of the key use cases of Claap to reduce the number of meetings is to let people record it, share the video recording with transcript & notes, and let your teammates easily catchup and collaborate on it.

If you’re only have conversations over the phone and only want to record voice, you should probably pick Otter.ai. But if you’re trying to consolidate tools, break silos and reduce costs with one unique video solution built for teams, here are a few reasons to consider Claap.

THE top reasons why companies use claap vs OTTER.AI

Reason #1

REASON #1 - CLAAP HELPS YOU RECORD VIDEOS, NOT ONLY VOICE.

Otter.ai vs Claap: record videos
Otter.ai is a powerful voice recorder. It helps you record your voice conversations, transcribe them and generate notes so that you can easily follow-up after a meeting without having to worry about note-taking.

Unlike Claap,  hasn’t been designed to record videos from your meetings. By using video recordings instead of voice recording, you're far more likely to get your message across. Verbal and non-verbal cues, screen sharing, documents, you can grasp much more context through video.

With Claap, you can instantly get a video recording from your meetings together with transcripts and key moments, so that your teammates can easily catchup important informations.

REASON #2

CLAAP HELPS YOU TRANSCRIBE INTO 100 LANGUAGES, NOT ONLY ENGLISH

Claap: multilanguage transcript
If you are part of an international company, it's likely that you have teams or customers located in various countries outside of the US.

While Otter.ai is excellent for transcribing voice conversations into English, its transcript feature does not support any other languages. This means you might lose crucial information shared with customers and teams that don't speak English.

With Claap, however, you can automatically transcribe your calls into 100 different languages. This broad range of language support can be invaluable for communicating with diverse teams and customers.

Here's the list of all languages Claap supports:
Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Armenian, Assamese, Azerbaijani, Bashkir, Basque, Belarusian, Bengali, Bosnian, Breton, Bulgarian, Burmese, Castilian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, Flemish, French, Galician, Georgian, German, Greek, Gujarati, Haitian, Haitian Creole, Hausa, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Javanese, Kannada, Kazakh, Khmer, Korean, Lao, Latin, Latvian, Letzeburgesch, Lingala, Lithuanian, Luxembourgish, Macedonian, Malagasy, Malay, Malayalam, Maltese, Maori, Marathi, Moldavian, Moldovan, Mongolian, Myanmar, Nepali, Norwegian, Nynorsk, Occitan, Panjabi, Pashto, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Pushto, Romanian, Russian, Sanskrit, Serbian, Shona, Sindhi, Sinhala, Sinhalese, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish, Sundanese, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tajik, Tamil, Tatar, Telugu, Thai, Tibetan, Turkish, Turkmen, Ukrainian, Urdu, Uzbek, Valencian, Vietnamese, Welsh, Yiddish, Yoru.

REASON #3

CLAAP IS BUILT FOR TEAM COLLABORATION, NOT ONLY FOR INDIVIDUAL USERS

Claap vs. Otter.ai: collaborate with your teammates
Otter has been designed for individual users first that want to take notes during meetings. Claap has always been designed for users, teams and organizations.

Claap’s workspace hierarchy is designed to give the right level of access and privacy to the right user group, all in one place.

An admin can manage a company’s workspace with one or more teams. Each team can organize work into different topics. Each topic is made of claaps recorded by users. At each level, we ensure the right level of permissions.

REASON #4

CLAAP HELPS YOU SHARE INSIGHTS WHERE PEOPLE WORK, RATHER THAN CREATING ANOTHER PLACE TO GO

Claap vs. Otter.ai: share insights right where people work
One of the main reason to record meetings is to share video insights such as product feedback, create feature request or support tickets, or add meeting snippets to your training programs.

While Otter enables you to push messages into your other tools, you cannot listen to meeting audio extract directly from where you work. So people often end up in Otter to listen to the audio.

In order to avoid context switching as much as possible (💡fast alignment = our leitmotif), Claap helps you automatically embed videos in your favorite tools — Slack, Notion, Jira, GitHub, ClickUp, Trello, …. — in a format specifically designed for that.
