Microsoft Clarity is your Hotjar Killer. Anyone tried it?

Check it out - https://clarity.microsoft.com/

All great features, plus analytics, plus it's free.

Will it kill Hotjar?

    Been trying it out with Reslant.com, it's pretty great and best part is that it's free

    Not sure if it will kill hotjar et. al., but if you are a Microsoft shop (using Office 365, enterprise-y, etc.) you now have one reason more not to use anything else.

      Thanks Jan. I only use their outlook :)

    We've been using it for a year now, it's incredible how fast they've been adding new features.

    Haven't tried Hotjar but for us, was an Inspectlet killer. I used to love Inspectlet but Clarity make almost the same things for free.

      Thanks Fabri for sharing that. I'll roll it out for https://recocards.com over the weekend.

    It has certainly done for us on the web, although, we are still dependent on hotjar for our mobile apps.

      Ohh, what's blocking you for mobile apps?

        from what i know its only available on web.

    Just added it to https://www.introspekt.app/ yesterday.

    Will let you know how it goes!

      Thanks Ashish. Looking forward to the results.

        So, here are my initial impressions:

        Shows:

        • Dashboard (where users came from, countries, # of visitors)
        • Recordings
        • Heatmaps

        For recordings, my website seemed broken, seemed like basic HTML. Overall meh.

        Couldn't tell you much about heatmaps because not a lot of places to click on my website.

        For me I mainly wanted to see where ppl came from, countries and # of users so for that it serves its purpose well.

          That's very interesting, thanks for sharing!

    I've used it on several projects. Does the job. Another alternative is Yandex which also has free heatmaps and screen recordings.

      Ohh wow I missed that too. Thanks Darko.

    Interesting, I've never seen it before. Has it been around for long?

    1. 2

      Yeah seems like it was in alpha/beta for a long time, before getting released in GA mid 2021.
