Installing the Descript desktop app

Descript is currently available as a desktop application for both MacOS and Windows. We also have a lightweight web view, which can be used primarily for playback and comments. The web view is accessible at https://web.descript.com/. The same email address and password can be used to login to your account, regardless of which platform you use.

MacOS Installation

  1. Download the Descript Installer for Mac.
  2. Once the .zip file has been downloaded to your computer, click to unpack the file; then, double-click the installer app to launch and begin installing Descript. If you’re prompted to confirm opening the file, click Open.

    Descript will now begin installing, which includes downloading the full application files. The download could take anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours, depending on your internet speed. If it looks like the installation has stalled partway through, we recommend leaving the installer application alone during this time until the download has successfully completed.
