Sharing screenshots is useful for many reasons, especially if you’re working on a presentation or working on a project with a team. When it comes to sharing screenshots, Microsoft Snipping Tool has been there for ages, but today we want to show you a new Office tool called Microsoft Snip.

Microsoft Snip takes sharing screenshots to a whole new level because it allows you to capture screenshot and annotate on it, which is extremely useful if you’re using tablet with stylus, or to record audio over the screenshot.

This allows you to create quite detailed screenshots, and you don’t have to use any third party tool to add annotations or audio. It’s quite useful, especially if you’re creating a tutorial for somebody for example.

When you install Microsoft Snip it will hover at the top of the desktop and you can easily access it and create a screenshot from your desktop or any running application.

Snip for Windows users is an awesome screenshot tool

One great feature is that all your captured screenshots are automatically copied to clipboard so you can easily share them with a single click. In addition, if you add voice to your screenshot it will be automatically turned to MP4 file that you can embed online or host it online on Microsoft servers.

Once you host it online, you’ll get an URL so you can easily share it with others. If you choose not to upload it, all your screenshots will be saved locally by default.

Microsoft Snip is currently in early beta, and there are some limitations. For example, the email option uses desktop version of Outlook by default and it doesn’t switch to Mail application. This isn’t a major problem, but it can be limiting for some users.

As we said Microsoft Snip is amazing screenshoting tool, because it adds all these new features. So far, Microsoft Snip is free while in beta, and we have no information whether it will remain free in the future.
