Google’s October event had some interesting launches and the most interesting is Google Clips.
What is Google Clips?
Google defines Clips as a designated photographer which can capture the correct moments in an event using AI algorithm, all by itself. It costs $249 and works with Google Pixel smartphones and Samsung S7/S8, iPhone 6 (and above) as well.
How to use Google Clips?
This hands-free camera can be clipped to any object that can hold the camera steadily. It learns to identify the faces and captures images of people who are important to the user. Clips has been designed to take images in a home environment, to capture images of family and close friends.
Accessing images taken by Google Clips
Google Clips lights up when it is working so that users are aware when the device is capturing the images at that particular moment. As an alternate, if the user doesn’t want to leave everything at AI’s hand, the physical shutter buttons come handy. Besides, the Google Clips app in the smartphone can also be used to capture images.
For sharing the images, Google Clips app is required. A gentle swipe will save the clip or delete the clip. Obviously, Google Photos will have these content in them. There’s no limit to backup the clips in Google Photos. Google Clips will work like any point-and-shoot camera which means, unless the user decides to save or share the content, it will remain in the device memory itself.
Any special feature in Google Clips?
Besides images, it can also capture short motion photos, like GIFs.
Google Clips may replace the photographer we need for taking candid shots. The advantage here is the compact design and easy fitment on any hinge or object that can hold its lightweight. Though costs a premium, young parents may find it desirable to capture images of their kids when they are too busy enjoying the moment.
