First revealed late last year alongside the new Pixelbook, Google’s Clips camera has gone on sale. However, almost as quickly as it went on sale, the first batch has sold out. Those that managed to purchase one before a new waitlist was introduced saw shipping times stretching out to early March.
The Google Clips camera is an always-on device that Google has targeted towards young families, although it has wider appeal as well. Although always-on, it is not always connected to the Internet. In fact, it only pairs with a smartphone. The device uses Google AI algorithms to recognize smiles and the people that it is capturing on a regular basis, to hopefully, give you that perfect shot of a special spontaneous family moment. It also records short video clips, but without audio.
The Google Clips camera retails for US$250 and comes in the single 16 GB configuration. Combined with a Pixel phone, users will get unlimited online storage with Google Photos.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
