Switch between modes

Ok so you’ve just recorded this really cool intro and now you want to jump into details.

You can now switch between Camera only, Screen + Camera and Screen only while recording.

Improved UI

We’ve also kept the features you like but in a new UI to make control buttons more discrete on your recording:

  • Click 💬 to annotate your screen with comments
  • Click ⏹ to re-start, save or delete your claap
  • Click ✨ to add effects while recording

New video upload: collaborate async on all your videos

Upload your recording

Not all meetings are meant to be replaced. For those that need to happen, you still want to follow-up or make them available for those that could not attend.

It’s now possible to upload and organize all your videos — all-hands, training, user research — all in one place, and collaborate on it async.

Record your meetings - without limits

It’s now possible to record beyond 30 minutes.

Please reach out if you want to get an early access to it.
