Add Images & Files in Comments
We all know the saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words." So when it comes to expressing complex ideas and feedback, sharing an image or screenshot can be the quickest and most effective option. As we’re building a solution to speed up alignment and idea sharing, we’re happy to announce that you can now attach images and files to your comments 🌅
One of the most requested integrations is now live: you can now import your Zoom meetings into Claap! ⚡️ Import recordings, get transcript, collaborate and organize your recordings, all in one place. Let’s bring all your videos — from meetings to screen recordings — under one roof!
Transcript is now available in Claap. Automatically transcribe into 100+ languages. Fast and reliable: transcribe 1h of audio in 10s with a word error rate as low as 1%, enhanced to be sensitive to professional jargon. Designed for deep collaboration: search through transcript, speaker detection, synced playback, add comments.
Video Replies say it with video
Truth is, comment threads in Claap could become pretty long when you need to give feedback that's a bit hard to deliver with just text. Good news! You can now reply to a thread with a short video.
Desktop App — record any browser or application
Great news — Claap’s Desktop App is now available on Mac 🎉 No more worrying about compatibility issues, you’re now able to record with your camera bubble across any browser or application.
New roles, endless possibilities. Unlock more external use cases.
From onboarding to product demos, ways of collaborating with Claap are limitless. But depending on your usage, you might need to define different roles and permission rights. To give you better control over what users can do in Claap and unlock external use cases, we’ve reworked the different roles in the product. Let’s dive in 👇
Slack Integration — Play in Slack. Reply to comments. Sync channels.
We’re super excited to announce that the new Claap for Slack integration is now available in the Slack directory. With the Slack integration you can: Directly play video in Slack: copy the link and let your teammates watch the recording in Slack (NEW) Get notified and reply to comments in Claap directly from Slack Connect Claap topics with Slack channels to automatically post video updates in Slack
Embed Modes: bring video collaboration to your favorite apps
Bring Claap anywhere with our new embed mode! Claap Embed gives you the power to deliver an async video collaboration experience from right within your favorite apps: Linear, GitHub, ClickUp, GitLab, Trello, Asana, and Jira. Just copy-paste a claap link. That’s it. Take a look below 👇
Advanced Control & Permissions
Just like solving a math problem, there’s nothing more satisfying than finding simple answers to complex problems. And when it comes to balancing control and flexibility, it’s not always straight forward. We believe great collaboration platforms should give admins peace of mind knowing their content remains both organized and secure, recorders the power to easily share access, and contributors the ability to seamlessly review content. To make this equation work, we’re so happy to announce the 2nd chapter of improvements made to Claap to unlock deep collaboration: advanced control & permissions 🎛 Let’s dive in 👇
Whether you’re a 1-person org or thousands of people spread across 50 countries, you need to take action fast. That’s why we built Claap to truly power up deep collaboration. A solid foundation that helps people, teams, and organizations collaborate effectively means you get a tool that speeds up your decision-making, not slow it down. Today, we’re pretty excited to start announcing a series of major improvements that will help unlock deeper collaboration. Chapter 1: Advanced Notification Control Online collaboration can often lead to one issue: too. many. notifications. To help you better handle notifications, we’ve made it easier to control them to your needs. Take a look!
New extension with full screen mode
Get ready! Over the next month, we’re rolling out our new Claap extension to help you record & store your videos even more smoothly! New full screen mode, change capture modes & filters while recording, improved UI, video upload… It’s time to share your best ideas. Quit all the meetings, not your job, with Claap.

Record anywhere — new integrations
How to break bad meeting habits? It’s no secret that we all wish we had fewer meetings.But scheduling a meeting is often a reflex we have when trying to get feedback on something a bit complex. That's why we’ve just launched a series of integrations to help you turn your next meeting into a 5-min claap. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!
Unsplash integration, new recording widget, playbook gallery
May was an exciting month for Claap. We officially launched on Product Hunt (n°1 Product of the Week). But we also shipped some cool new features: unsplash integration, recording widget and playbook gallery!
The beginning of the year was pretty exciting at Claap with many new features that we wanted to release for a long time (Polls, Slack Integration, Labels, etc...). March was the time to take a step back and improve existing features that went unnoticed, and prepare for the public launch (stay tuned 🙃) We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the users that participated in improving those features with us (see best practice below). Your help is gold 🙏
Claap App in Slack - Speed up your decision-making process
Teams that win today are the ones that stay aligned and make better, faster decisions. But we all know how complex it can be when communication is spread across different tools and platforms. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that Claap x Slack integration is now available. We designed it to unlock new workflows that will speed up your decision-making process.
Topics & Labels - customize your workspace
We’re building Claap to help distributed organizations make faster, better decisions. This means creating a place where key updates and decisions are easily streamlined and accessible. Today, we’re glad to share a new milestone towards this direction: you can now easily organize claaps with labels in your different topics. Since you must be wondering how it can improve your existing workflows, I’ve broken down a few examples of how we use it internally in the article.
Full screen & preview — in the flow of (async) work
Implementing new async workflows can become challenging when it requires to switch between multiple documents & platforms to align and make decisions.

Faster inbox & frictionless onboarding
Last couple of weeks were very exciting and pretty intense at Claap with many new features released (new extension, new inbox, improved collaboration, and more...).Delivering so many new things at once can sometimes lead to small glitches and regression in the product so we also wanted to apologize if you've experienced some issues recently.As we're having more and more users on the platform, we're now fully dedicated to improving speed and stability. So please let us know if you see anything on your side 🙏
