Capturing video clips with Glass works similarly to taking a picture:

  • Press and hold the camera button above your right eye for one second.
  • From the Home screen, say "ok glass, record a video."

While recording, you'll see what is being recorded by Glass in your display as well as a time counter for your video recording.

Extend a recording

Glass defaults to recording video clips of ten seconds. To continue recording past the default limit, do either of the following while the video is in progress:

  • Press the camera button.
  • Tap the touchpad and then Extend video.

You'll know it works when the progress bar along the bottom of the display disappears. The video will then continue until it's stopped or you run out of storage or battery.

Stop a recording

To stop recording your video, tap the touchpad and swipe through the card actions to select Stop recording. If you extended your recording, the camera button can then be used to stop the recording.

View your recording

To view the video in your timeline, swipe forward on the touchpad from the Home screen. Glass will make a collage out of pictures, videos, and vignettes taken during a day and bundle them together. Tap into the bundle to browse and then on a video to play the video. Alternatively, swipe forward to share or delete the video from your timeline. You can also find the video in your Auto Backup album on Google+ once Glass has a chance to sync your pictures.

Syncing on Google+

Glass will sync all of your pictures and videos automatically to your Auto Backup album when you plug it into a charger while it is connected directly to a Wi-Fi network or if it is sharing a Wi-Fi connection through the MyGlass for Android app. Otherwise, you can force a picture or video to sync by sharing it manually, or by using the Auto Backup controls in the Settings bundle.

Back up all option from the Auto Backup settings card

You can also import the pictures and videos you captured with Glass by connecting it to your computer with the USB cable. It will connect as a media device, similar to a USB drive or camera.

Living with Glass

Glass is designed for micro-interactions, not for staring into the screen, watching Friday night movie marathons or reading "War and Peace."
