  • Google Clips is one more camera lens for Pixel 2

There were many things expected to be announced today but one that we only heard about yesterday but had no idea what it was came as a surprise - Google Clips. "And finally, all the machine learning happens on the device itself, so just like any point-and-shoot, nothing leaves your device until you decide to save and share it".

Clips grabs "motion photos", the new picture format that Google created that includes some brief movement around the frame, like a Live Photo from Apple. It also has a dedicated shutter button if you want to take a quick photo.

Google Clips uses AI and machine learning to recognise key photographic moments (such as people and subject), and automatically focuses on those. You can connect to your phone to check what you've got.

The small, square device, called Google Clips, can be attached to something stationary so it can capture images of everything within its range of view. The camera is trained to capture soundless video of faces and pets that it recognizes.

Google states that the camera comes with 16GB of onboard storage and 3 hours of battery life. It records short videos and takes pictures when you're smiling or just having a good time. It's a small, square device that uses artificial intelligence to capture those flawless moments in life.

These clips sync wirelessly to the Google Clips app for Android and iOS, and Google Photos users can back up unlimited photos for free.

Google Clips employs a series of AI-based algorithms to detect the moments worth taking pictures of and accordingly, functions in various scenarios.
