The essential user testing tool

Hotjar's Recordings is one of the easiest ways to get started with user testing. It helps you identify usability issues with your site by watching how real people interact with your pages and elements.

It requires little setup and are a simple way to enhance your user research and improve the functionality and effectiveness of your website.

See what your users see

With Recordings you can see actions real users take on your site, including the clicks, mouse movements, U-turns, and rage clicks.

Spot functionality problems and bugs, watch how people interact with page elements, and see where they stumble, get lost, or completely leave.

Quickly find user behavior insights

No need to manually search through a large list of Recordings. Hotjar’s filters help you narrow down your selection and find the ones you must watch first.

Focus on people who came from a certain referral source, used a mobile device, or clicked repeatedly on a page element, so you can perform the user testing analysis you need.

Usability testing tools you can use right now

When you sign up for Hotjar, you don't just get access to Recordings: UX tools such as Heatmaps and Feedback are also available to show you the areas of your website that get the most (and least) action and to help you collect feedback from your visitors.

If you're looking for usability testing tools to run UX research, a combination of Recordings + Heatmaps + Feedback gives you clear insight at various points of the customer journey, including before/after running A/B testing or making significant changes to your page and website structure.
