Google Clips is a discontinued miniature clip-on camera device developed by Google. It was announced during Google's "Made By Google" event on 4 October 2017. It was released for sale on January 27, 2018.[1] With a flashing LED that indicates it is recording, Google Clips automatically captures video clips at moments its machine learning algorithms determine to be interesting or relevant.[2][3]

It had 16 GB of storage built-in storage and could record clips for up to 3 hours.[4] This camera was originally priced at $249 in the United States.[4]

The product was pulled from the Google Store on October 15, 2019.[5] Google has said that the product would be supported until December 2021.[6]

Reception

The Independent wrote that Google Clips is "an impressive little device, but one that also has the potential to feel very creepy."[7]
