How to Suppress Background Noise in Loom Recordings

If you use Loom to create screencast videos, there's a new feature that you should be aware of. That feature is an option to have background noise automatically suppressed when you publish your videos. You'll find this option under "video preferences" after you have finished recording your video. In this short video I demonstrate where to find the background noise suppression feature in Loom. 


It should be noted that this feature is currently in beta so it might not appear in all users' accounts right away. As a point of reference, I have just a free Loom account and the feature showed up in my account this morning.
