Automated AI Summaries

Automatic AI-powered summaries are now available for all your videos. Now, every recording that’s added to your channel will summarized into a list of key points, each with a link to the moment in the video where it occurred.

We tested this feature internally for a few weeks, and it quickly made a huge impact on how we work together. Here are a few reasons we think you’ll like it too:

  • Forget the tedium of recapping your recording. Stop spending time and energy transcribing your notes and writing comprehensive descriptions before sharing your recording. AI summaries take care of that as soon as the video is ready.
  • Catch up on meetings you didn’t attend. No more wondering what happened during a meeting. Quickly scan the meeting summary to get a quick overview of what transpired, and jump to any moment that you need to see for yourself.
  • Keep track of what happened, even after it happened. Summaries aren’t only useful for immediate recaps, they also provide an easy-to-reference overview for when you need to find that time you talked about that thing.

Summaries will be automatically generated for every new recording you add to Rewatch. You can also generate them for your existing videos by navigating to the video page and clicking the "Generate Summary" button below the description.

Use emojis to react to a video while you watch

Sometimes it feels like it’s too much to post a comment just to say: "nice", "love it", or "great job" — so we end up just not saying anything at all 😢. With emoji reactions you can now immediately express sentiments like these while watching any video on Rewatch with just a click or a tap 👏.

To start, we’ve baked in a handful of reactions for you to use:

  • ❤️ - Great for saying “love it”, expressing solidarity, or thanks
  • 🎉 - Share in a celebration or express your excitement
  • 👏 - Applaud someone's efforts or say "great job”
  • 😆 - Chuckle along with someone or add some levity
  • 🤯 - Share your surprise or stand in awe of someone's work
  • 😢 - Commiserate over a tough moment or loss

When you react, you’re giving a bit of feedback, acknowledgement, and energy to whoever’s taken the time to share with you via video — that can mean a lot. That’s why in Rewatch, reactions don’t just sit there for nobody to see, they’re actually delivered to the recipient as positive vibes that animate for them to enjoy.

So the next time you’re feeling happy, excited, thankful, or anything else when watching a video, be sure to share a reaction — you'll brighten someone’s day!

Share portions of your video with clips

Today we are introducing Clips, a new tool for sharing and organizing your video content. With clips, you can select specific moments from your video in order to share with others, initiate a side conversation, or add to a collection.

Want to share a portion of a private meeting with your team? Need to discuss a moment with only a few members of your channel? It’s now possible. And, the actions you take on the clip – publishing, commenting, even deleting – won’t affect the original video.

Here are a few ways we’ve been using clips at Rewatch:

Share a moment, and keep everything else private. There are times when a private video includes a moment that would be nice to share with others. Now you can create a clip to share with the team, while still keeping the rest of the video private.

Focus the conversation. For moments that require deeper discussion, using a clip can be an effective way to foster a focused, in-depth conversation. This works great when a team needs to collaborate on a single idea or topic, as well as way of providing targeted feedback on a sales call or customer interview.

Compile a topical video repository. Clips are a great tool for building a curated, topic-based collection of content. Whether it's customer success stories, sales calls strategies, or anything else, clips let you isolate relevant moments to keep your collection focused and easy to navigate.

Learn more about using Clips in our help center.

Collaborating without a meeting is easier than ever with Series

Series are a new way for you to stay connected with your team, wherever you work. Record quick videos to share what you’re up to—and let your team catch up on their own time and schedule.

A series is a collaborative space where team members can share updates on a specific project, task, or topic. We think they’re great for replacing those “status update” meetings (like a daily standup), as well as bringing your team together, even if you’re remote, or not always in the same space at the same time. Series enables teams to spend less time scheduling and attending meetings, and makes it easier to stay on top of the things you care most about.

Here’s a look at what we’ve added:

  • Recent Highlights series: If your channel has any video highlights, you’ll notice a new series called “Recent Highlights”. We’ve compiled highlights from all videos into a single viewing experience, with full commenting and sharing capabilities.
  • Creating a custom series: Creating a series for your team is easy – simply give it a title and decide who can contribute (or leave it open for the whole channel to add to). For status updates and other recurring events, you can even add reminders that notify contributors when it’s time to add a video.
  • Tools for creating and recording: Our desktop screen recorder and mobile apps are now equipped with new tools for sharing your work and ideas. Now, alongside recording a video and or capturing your screen, you can create quick, custom, slide presentations to share with your team.
  • View, comment, and share: The series viewer compiles videos from the team into a single, immersive experience (but with the same transcript and commenting capabilities you’ve grown accustomed to). Add in indicators for “unwatched” videos, and catching up with your teammates is quicker than ever before.

Subscribe to keywords and get notified when they're mentioned

Looking for an easier way to stay on top of conversations you care about? Good news—you can now subscribe to keywords and get notified whenever they're mentioned in a video.

When you subscribe to a keyword, you'll receive a notification in the app and, depending on your notification preferences, by email and/or mobile push.

Here are some keywords you might subscribe to:

  • Your name: Hey, who doesn't want to know when they're mentioned? 😄
  • Your team's name: Know when your team comes up in conversation.
  • Project terms: Working on "pricing"? Get notified whenever it gets discussed.
