"User Friendly and Does a Phenomenal Job capturing everything you need"

The quality of the output once you finish recording is top-notch. Very intuitive and made it a breeze for me to do quick videos for clients and was easy to share to them across multiple mediums.

"Need to record? Vmaker is the tool!"

I like the possibility of saving the screen and also having video of myself explaining. I love to share my browser and show what I'm doing to my clients. It's great versus other similar apps, the chrome extension works wonderfully!

"More intuitive to use than Loom and VidYard, plus has virtual background, More reliable than vidyard"

Good UI. Virtual backgrounds are great, editor is very easy to use. Seems to be very reliable so far (some of the other online tools glitch out and fail)

You can use the Windows Xbox GameBar application to record your screen with the audio.

You can use the Xbox Gamebar application but it has a few limitations. It allows you only to record only one screen at a time. If you want to capture the Gameplay along with the video of another game or a related video, it’s impossible. So, we’d suggest you use a screen recorder like Vmaker which allows you to record multiple screens at once, along with the audio.
