You might not know what goes viral, but AI does
We taught Descript's AI what works on social media, so it can find the moments with the highest engagement potential.

AI for the way you work
Whatever parts of the creative process you find most tedious, most difficult, most annoying — there’s an AI tool for that.
Removing filler words and other verbal clutter. So you get to a clean cut in moments, not hours.
Instantly hunt down and easily remove all the “ums,” “uhs,” “likes,” and “you knows” to make yourself sound smarter (even if you’re not).
Add captions — and accessibility, and views, and pizzazz — in a couple clicks.
You don’t need an expensive mic and soundproofed recording space. Studio Sound will make it sound like you recorded in a studio. In a single click.
No teleprompter? No problem. Descript’s AI will make it look like your eyes were locked on the camera, even if you were reading off-screen.
Don’t bother with a real green screen, or even with tidying up. Just click on Green Screen, let it remove your background, then replace it with anything you want.
Just drag-and-drop you audio or video file; you’ll get a transcript in moments. Now you’ve stepped through the looking glass, into the magical land of editing in Descript.
Creating your video or podcast was hard enough. Now you have to agonize over writing social posts to promote it? Nah, just let Descript’s AI write them for you.
Another annoying but important task you can check off your list in an instant using AI. Even if it’s not perfect, it should get you most of the way there.

Frequently asked questions

What platforms can Descript create short-form video for?
Instagram. TikTok. LinkedIn. YouTube Shorts. Twitter (or X if we must). Facebook. In other words, all of them.
Can I use Descript to repurpose webinars and other long-form video?
Oh yeah. Just drag your video file in, get a transcript, and ask Descript’s AI to find your most social-worthy highlights. Then clip them, add your branding, and post those suckers. It’s literally that easy.
What are AI clips and will people think I’m a monster for using them?
AI clips could just be clips you make with the help of AI tools like Descript’s. Nothing wrong with that — your creativity is still an absolute necessity. AI clips could also be fake or shoddy content made entirely using generative AI tools. Posting those might not make you a monster, but it’s pretty uncool if you ask us — mostly because the quality is still pretty terrible.
What about that Mr. Beast guy?
The videos are tough to watch. But the burgers are excellent.
