VideoAsk is honestly messaging taken to another level! With everything going virtual, it is the perfect addition to companies and organizations who find just texting and calling monotonous, especially in the case of interviews. VideoAsk by Typeform makes communication more straightforward, more effective, quicker, and absolutely personalized.
In a nutshell, it allows you to record videos of the questions and/or answers that you would typically write, send them over, and wait for the video response. Not only it makes expressing things quicker and easier, but it also ensures that the two people communicating truly understand the essence of what each one means. It is like any other messaging app, only replaced by video messages.
All the messages are collected in an inbox that you can respond to, one by one, like you would on an iMessage or Email.
In this article, we will be digging much deeper into what VideoAsk really is and how one uses it to the best of their abilities.

Videoask is an interactive tool that lets you communicate face to face with your audience, irrespective of their locations and time zones. It helps you build stronger relationships and strengthens the virtual working system that has now been adopted all over the world.
Trusted by big clients like Fiverr, Wolt, Jobandtalent, recruiters mainly use VideoAsk to shortlist suitable candidates for their job roles with an interview as close to as a personal interview. The interviews are conducted in a question-and-answer form where the recruiter asks the potential candidate questions by sending a video. The potential candidates then reply with their answers, again, in a video form.
This enhances the screening process of the interview and enables the job givers and job seekers an equal opportunity to identify what they expect from each other and how things can move ahead accordingly. The one-to-one conversations at scale help in communicating without any barriers.
