A video recording tool for PC
Threadit is a free utility tool that was developed by threadit.app for desktop devices. It's a screen capture and video recording browser extension for Google Chrome. It allows users to create short video recordings containing important work progress and updates that they can share with members of their teams. It helps boost overall productivity without the need to conduct real-time online meetings that consume more time to set up and requires a fast and stable internet connection.
How do I use Threadit?
You need to create an account—you can use your Google or Microsoft account for this—before proceeding to download the Threadit extension for your browser. Once done, its icon will appear in the top-right corner of your browser, next to the URL bar. Click on it and a pop-up window will appear where you can choose from various templates or create a blank Threadit. You can name your thread and attach multiple video clips to it.
The controls are simple and easily accessible. You have the settings icon to configure your webcam and mic. Then, there's the red button to start recording videos, as well as icons to toggle your webcam and mic, on and off. There is a screen share button if you want to present while you are recording videos, as well. Click on the "finish video" button when you're done and it will provide you with some options before publishing.
You can set share and control parameters, such as letting anyone view your thread or restrict access to it except to certain groups or individuals. You can also enable transcription and attachments to your videos. Others can reply to your thread through video recordings and the process will be the same, as well. However, they will also need to create a Threadit account to view and collaborate in your threads.
An efficient approach to collaboration and workflow
Threadit takes cues from social media platforms like TikTok and allows you to record short video clips, but in the context of the workplace. You'll be able to provide your team with important status updates regarding work or other project-related matters. It's a viable alternative to conducting time-consuming video calls or sending often vague chats or emails. It is highly recommended and worth trying out.
