What is Google Clips?

Google Clips™ is a hands-free camera built with Google’s smarts that lets you effortlessly capture and view more of the spontaneous moments with the people and pets who matter to you.

Google Clips has machine learning built-in. The camera learns to recognize the people who matter most to you and decides the best moments to capture and keep.

And Google Clips works with your phone locally, so you never need a network connection to capture.

Among many features, Google Clips includes the following:

Hands-Free Capture

Google Clips automatically captures short clips that last several seconds (with no audio) when the camera sees people or pets up close.

Moment IQ

Google Clips is smart enough to recognize great expressions, lighting, and framing. This affects what the camera captures - so you get beautiful, candid images.

Familiar Faces

Google Clips learns to recognize the people who matter most to you. The more you're with someone, the more it learns to capture clips of them.

Fast Transfer

Stream clips to the Google Clips app in seconds so you can quickly view your content. No wires needed - it's the simplest transfer experience of any camera.

Suggested Moments

The Google Clips app highlights the best moments or "clips" captured for you. Simply toggle the feature off to see all the clips your camera collected.

Live Preview

With the Live Preview function in the Google Clips app, you see exactly what your camera sees.
