Watch remote users interact with your prototype Ken Rosen / Friday, February 02, 2018 A few months ago, we showed you how easy it is to use Indigo Studio to test your prototypes with actual users, even if you can’t directly observe them. We’ve made it even easier since then: now, in addition to tracking your users’ interactions with your prototypes, you can also record the users themselves via their webcam (with their opt-in permission, of course). Every facial expression, eye movement, and vocalization is synchronized to the interactions recorded in the prototype, so you can really dig into the user experience! Check it out for yourself—we’ve created a sample usability study so you can see how it works. When you run the study, you’ll be prompted to install a browser extension to support video recording. For full video replays, we require Google’s Chrome browser, but if you’re only interested in recording interactions with the prototype, any browser will do. Pretty easy, isn’t it? If you want to see what the replay looks like from the perspective of the study owner, here’s a look at a usability test I set up and then took myself. Notice how every word I say (yes, I talk to myself) and eye movement tracks to the cursor on the screen. Also notice the red and blue dots on the timeline—they correspond to incorrect and correct interactions according to the flow I defined when I set up the study. It’s really that easy. You can also easily generate and review a report from each study--here's an example. If you’re an Indigo Studio Professional or Indigo Studio Enterprise user, you already have everything you need to run unlimited usability studies with video replays at no extra cost. Or, you can download Indigo Studio Essential for free and get 30 days of full access to all of Indigo Studio Professional’s advanced features, including remote usability studies.
