Otter wants to be a hub for all your transcription and note-taking needs

Otter is one of the most useful tools for journalists. It helps me transcribe my interviews easily without having to manually listen to them and take notes.

Generally, I used Otter to record my interviews, and then go back to the app to listen to them while writing my stories.

The company wants to change that.

It’s trying to make Otter a meeting hub for individuals and teams. To achieve this, it’s bringing new features like a revamped home feed, calendar integration, collaborative meeting notes, and AI-powered meeting summaries.

The biggest change to the home screen is that now you can see all your meetings for the week. Currently, Otter can show events on Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams. So if you use a different platform, you’ll have to manually record it.
