Control who can view your video's AI-generated content
We’ve enhanced our content visibility settings to give you more control over which viewers can see what AI-generated content. Each section of content can now be set to one of three visibility options:
- Visible to all: Anybody with access to the video can view
- Channel only: Only channel members (including guests) can view
- Hidden: Not visible to anybody
This is helpful for when you want to share a video with external viewers, but don’t want them to see content or notes meant only for your team. It’s also a great way to hide unnecessary content to let your viewers focus on what’s most important.
Note that the default visibility of AI-generated content may have set in the AI notes template your video is using, and that any changes made for a video’s content will not affect the template’s settings.

Link action items and Asana tasks with our new integration
Rewatch’s new Asana integration allows you to create or link Asana tasks with AI action items, and comments on Rewatch videos.
Now Asana users can have extra context for tasks originating from customer calls, meetings, bug reports, etc. — without digging through emails, meeting notes, or pings. Once linked, when an Asana task is completed, the Rewatch action item will automatically be completed too, and vice-versa.
Enjoy a smoother workflow from meetings to actionable tasks, and skip all the copy/paste shenanigans.
AI meeting notes templates: Customize your meeting notes automatically
Our new AI meeting notes templates enable teams to customize the AI-generated notes associated with each video. Users can choose from a set of “core” notes templates or can create templates that are tailored to fit their specific needs.
Previously, every video added to a Rewatch channel received the same AI-generated content: a recap paragraph and list of action items. This content alleviated the need to take meetings notes and provided a quick way to catch up on the video content. However, it often still left a lot of other questions unanswered particularly because different types of videos and meetings — project team updates, sales calls, company all-hands — need different types of questions answered.
Our custom templates let customers automatically surface AI-generated information based on the type of video or meeting, without having to write any prompts.
📝 Team meeting: A recap of the meeting and a list of action items and follow-up tasks.
📞 Sales call: More information about your prospect, their needs, budget, decision process, and more.
👥 Customer check-in: Overview of the customer's experience with your product.
🔬 User research interview: Summary of the research participant and their product experience.
👔 Job interview: Recap of the job candidate's profile, key skills, and qualifications.
🚀 Project team update: Summary of the project's status, next steps, and current blockers or challenges.
🌐 Company all-hands: Overview of the key moments, an outline of major announcements, and list of questions asked.
Channel admins can modify these core templates by adding, removing, or re-ordering prompts. Channels on paid plans can also create new templates in addition to this core set.
There are three ways to adjust what template is utilized in your videos:
- Automations: Using automations is the quickest way to set a notes template for large batches of videos. Already using an automation to record all Sales calls? You now can add the Sales Call notes template as part of your automation.
- Meeting settings: For meeting recordings that are not being automated, customers can also choose to set the notes templates via their meeting settings. For a recurring meeting, this setting will also change all future instances of the meeting. Or you can build a new automation.
- Video settings: Video owners can also change the template for an individual video via that video’s settings.
For all Rewatchers:
- Meeting participants are now automatically tagged in the recording
- The Channel home page now displays a list of user’s upcoming meetings
- Notifications are now enabled for completing action items
- Multiple improvements to the Rewatch meeting recording flow, including enhanced notifications for recording consent
- Animated GIFs can now be added to video comments
- Clips can be downloaded — in addition to being shareable by link and embed
For Rewatch Channel Admins:
- Channels on Team plans can now change their billing cycle
- Admins can adjust Channel-level permissions controlling who can download videos
Link action items and issues with our new Linear integration
Rewatch’s new Linear integration allows you to create or link Linear issues with AI action items, and comments on Rewatch videos.
Linear users now have context for the feedback or details surrounding the action item and can click back to the video for full context — without digging through emails, meeting notes, or pings. Once linked, when a Linear issue is completed, the Rewatch action item will automatically be completed too, and vice-versa.
Instead of manually copy/pasting between platforms, our integration allows you to connect in a couple clicks, then stay in sync automatically. This streamlines project communication for Linear users, while ensuring teammates get full context from bug report videos for engineering issues, work-in-progress calls, customer feedback meetings, and async comments on videos that mention product improvements, bugs, and more.

Link action items and issues with our new GitHub integration
Rewatch’s newly expanded GitHub integration enables new workflows around issue tracking and project management. Users can effortlessly create or link GitHub issues to action items captured by Rewatch’s AI meeting assistant, or to async comments on Rewatch videos.
GitHub users now have context for the feedback or details surrounding the action item and can click back to the video for the full context — without digging through emails, meeting notes, or pings. Once linked, when a GitHub issue is closed, the Rewatch action item will automatically be marked as complete, and vice-versa.
Instead of manually copying and pasting information between platforms, this integration allows you to connect in a couple clicks, then stay in sync automatically. This streamlines project management for GitHub users, while ensuring teammates get full context from bug report videos for engineering issues, work-in-progress calls, customer feedback meetings, and async comments on videos that mention product improvements, bugs, and more.
- Playback speed memory: When you change your playback speed on a video, Rewatch will maintain the selected playback speed on all videos.
Get notified in Discord about new Rewatch videos and comments
Our new Discord integration makes it seamless to stay informed about new team activity in Rewatch.
Once your Discord account is connected to Rewatch, team members can share videos in Discord and see the preview thumbnail and AI-powered recap; subscribe directly to Collections and Series; and connect Collections to specific Discord channels.
This new integration continues our goal of bringing the power of Rewatch to users’ favorite collaboration tools. By putting notifications directly in these platforms, Rewatch users can spend less time manually sharing information and more time getting real work done.
The Discord integration mimics the functionality of our Slack integration, which has also undergone enhancements. Users can subscribe to any Collection or Series from within Slack — rather than entering the Rewatch platform.
We’ve also added these slash commands:
/rewatch subscribeSubscribes the Slack channel to a Collection or Series.
/rewatch unsubscribeDisplays connected collections and series and allows you to unsubscribe.
/rewatch subscribe allSubscribes the Slack channel to all Rewatch activity.
/rewatch settingsAdjust notification preferences and view connected collections and series.

Unlock a better experience with Rewatch's video page redesign
The home page is the hub of the Rewatch platform. But the page where you actually watch a video? That’s the heart of your experience. We’ve redesigned video pages to make it easier for users to engage with videos and to collaborate with teammates.
If you watch the video above, or head to one of your own, you’ll immediately see these changes. Before, reading AI-generated notes, the video transcript, or comments/highlights meant a lot of scrolling up and down the page to find what you were looking for. Now, all of the important details you need are visible on your screen, at one time. Plus, we’ve built in more ways to navigate that content.
Here are a few of our favorite new details:
- Simplified view for timeline-based content. AI-generated key moments now live directly under the video to the right of other content, like comments and the transcript, making all three sections visible at once. This makes the timeline-based information more useful.
- Dedicated content section. Notes, comments, the transcription, and video settings now live in a dedicated section next to the video. You can easily switch between tabs to access the details you need and view alongside the video and summary items.
- A single space for comments and discussions. Since the comments are part of the dedicated content section, all of your discussions are in a single aggregated spot. This makes it easy to catch up on different threads, while also cutting down on duplicate conversations that could easily happen with the previous UI.
- Sticky content navigation bar. A bonus we love: the content section’s nav bar is sticky. Scroll through the transcript or comments, and the nav bar stays with you so you can easily hop over to another section at any time.
- New ways to comment. Add a comment from the transcript, from the video, or directly in the comment section. The comments will stay time-stamped, no matter how you engage.
- Automatic transcript scroll. By default, the transcript now scrolls in tandem with the video. If you scroll to a different timestamp than the video, a “jump to current position” button will pop up so you can easily get back in-time.
- Rename your Rewatch recorder. You can now control what name appears when the recorder joins calls on your behalf.
- Access your Collections more easily. Filter with a Collections-only search. View by Grid or List. Sort alphabetically, by created date, or by updated date.
- New engagement metrics track people who not only visited a page, but also interacted with it or showed signs of reading as an alternative to playing the video.
Today's update is also a major step towards upcoming Product advancements. If you’re interested in being the first to know about those, you can sign up here. We have a lot in the works that we’re excited to share!
Automations for Recording, Sharing, and Privacy
We obsess over meetings at Rewatch: how to make meetings more productive, how to focus better when we’re in a meeting, and, of course, how to eliminate meetings. Our newest update was built to address each of these questions: automations allow you to, well, automate which meetings are recorded and what happens to the recording afterwards.
Previously, you had to manually share and/or publish each meeting recording to individual channels. Now, you can automatically record meetings, then selectively publish, add to collections, and share with invitees, all according to rules you create.
Filters determine which meetings are affected. You’re able to filter meetings by:
- Meeting title: Including exact matches, and the presence or absence of specific words
- Invitees: Target meetings with people internal or external to your organization
- Organizer: Target just the meetings you create, or those created by others
Actions are what will happen after your meeting is recorded. You can automate the following processes:
- Visibility: Control meeting privacy
- Add to a collection: Send videos to the right collections
- Share with invitees: Send invitees, including those who could not make it, a recap + access to the recording.
Once you’ve created an automation (or automations!), each of your upcoming meetings will be automatically filtered and processed based on the rules you established.
You can always override or disable automations for specific meetings when they’re an exception to the rule. Additionally, channel admins can create automations and distribute them to the entire channel or specific groups of people.
Customers will save time by not having to manually distribute each meeting they record. Similarly, invitees, stakeholders, or anyone else who may need info on reoccurring meetings will benefit from meetings being more consistently shared and distributed without reminding hosts to record and share.
📈Sales team trainings: Sales leaders regularly tell us how it’s impossible to get their reps to add extra workflow steps to their calls. With this update, a single automation can record all the team’s external sales calls and publish them to a collection where their leader can view and coach as needed — without sales reps forgetting to record or share the bad calls.

💬Timely internal communications - Comms teams can automatically funnel broad-interest recordings to predefined and structured collections within their organization.
