Using Live Preview with Google Clips

Live Preview helps you easily see what your Google Clips camera sees and make sure your subjects are within the frame.

To start Live Preview, open the Google Clips app while your camera is capturing and tap the Live Preview button at the top of the app.

Your camera will continue to capture automatically while Live Preview is running. Meanwhile, you can use Live Preview to:

  • Understand what your camera is going to capture.
  • Make sure your friends and family are within the frame.
  • Use the orientation indicator to ensure your camera is level.
  • Manually capture a clip with the shutter button.

Note: Live Preview is meant to give you a quick view from your camera. To avoid draining your battery too quickly, don't run it for more than 3 to 5 minutes at a time.
