Google Clips, the autonomous AI-driven camera from the Mountain View company, has a new update rolling out for the Android app that supports it. It brings a new timelapse feature to the camera as well as other improvements to things like recognizing facial expressions. The new build is version 1.6.2026903322 for those keeping score at home.
The big new feature in the app is timelapse support. Now you can setup your Google Clips camera in this mode and it will capture a continuous stream of everything that the camera sees. It will then condense it into a fast-forwarded timelapse which you can then save to your Google Photos account. While it goes somewhat against the grain of what Google intended Clips to be – a spontaneous event capturing camera with your family, kids and pets – this new timelapse feature should give you a quick and easy way to capture things like sunrises and sunsets.
