Google Clips, a miniature hands-free video camera designed to take spontaneous videos of your family, has been deemed too spontaneous by some users and a report suggests that a remedy is in the works. Engadget outlined some of the changes that users will be seeing .

Because of the nature of the device, the moments that the camera deems as “interesting” or “special” are maybe too unpredictable. Users have been complaining that their significant moments were, in fact, left undocumented. Out of the 51 ratings on the accompanying app page on Google Play, it received just 3.8 stars out of 5.


To combat the issue, Google “‘completely rebuilt’ High Capture rate so you can ‘capture many more hugs, jumps, smiles, dances'” of those that you can now select. With the new Familiar Faces management screen, you can decide who the camera deems as “important”.

Finally, in addition to the camera allowing users to take full resolution pictures on demand, Clips will keep the best frame from each recording in full resolution.


The update is rolling out now via the Play Store and the App Store. JB
