Loom’s AI Suite
Loom’s new AI-powered capabilities are designed to help users be more productive and efficient without having to lift a finger. The suite increases viewer engagement on Looms by 18%, and 73% of people say it is “extremely or very valuable” to their current workflows.
The simple capabilities of the Loom AI Suite, which is available as a premium add-on for Business and Enterprise subscriptions, quickly offer context and polish to Looms. Loom AI generates a video title, a description of talking topics, divides each video into timestamped chapters, assigns action items to colleagues, and eliminates any “Ums” or extended pauses. Text-to-video, voice/camera avatars, and more features are in Loom’s AI roadmap for the future.
Loom AI is available for purchase or more information at loom.com/ai.
50+ additional languages for closed captioning and immediate transcriptions
In one out of every four Looms, the recording is not in English. Everyone at work can communicate effectively thanks to Loom. This is a major advancement in that direction.
All consumers, regardless of plan, will have access to multilingual transcription and captions. Additionally, this update makes all 50+ languages compatible with AI-powered features.
Integration with Docs & Chat in Google Workspace
Loom announced its first formal agreement with Google in order to deliver Loom to their dependable workspace, which is used daily by billions of users. This is what we’re doing:

- Share and view Loom videos within Google Chat by using the preview feature. Do you often find yourself typing lengthy chat messages? Instead, record a brief Loom and email it.
Since its launch in 2016, the Loom Chrome extension has been a crucial component of the Loom platform. By collaborating with Google, Loom is now more accessible to the 3 billion people that use their ecosystem.
