Collaborate around video moments

Share insights with your team

In addition to sharing clips with a wider audience, you can also send them privately for internal reference purposes, to share with clients, or as part of a review process prior to publishing or using in an original product. Integrations with Slack, Dropbox, Google Drive, and other services make sharing and collaborating around clips seamless for your entire team. Whether you invite users into SnapStream or hook it into your own existing processes, working with video artifacts and insights has never been easier.

Save it for later

Your future self will thank you

Easily find, save, and reference particular points within a longer video that you may want to share or make use of later. This comes in handy for multi-person teams using SnapStream where one person flags noteworthy clips in live or recorded video and other team members jump in to perfect the edit, proofread, and share on social media or use in original productions.
