Another product has joined the “cemetery” of Google’s closed projects (and there are already over 180 of them) - the “smart” Clips camera.
What it is
The Google Clips camera with artificial intelligence was released in October 2017, along with Google Pixel 2 smartphones.
It is very compact, but its main feature isthe ability to independently take photos and videos. That is, the camera itself evaluates the situation, over time, learns to recognize people and at an unexpected moment imperceptibly takes a picture or video clip for memory. In theory, this is a good helper for fans of "live" photos.
However, in reality, the camera took inappropriate photos and videos, and it cost a lot of money - $ 250. Therefore, it was not particularly successful.
After the release of Pixel 4, Google Clips disappeared from the branded online store.
Google representatives said that Clip support will last until December 2021, after which there will be no updates for the device.
Recall that Google also “buried” the Daydream virtual reality platform and Daydream View headset.
