Add a Loom Block

To add the block to your page or post, the easiest way is to copy and paste a Loom video URL directly into a new block in the WordPress editor.

Alternatively you may click on the block inserter + icon to open the block library and select the Loom block.

You can also type /loom and hit enter in a new line to add one quickly.

Detailed instructions on adding blocks can be found here.
