As read on Tech Crunch,
Clips is not an accessory to the Pixel — or anything else, really. “It’s an accessory to anything, I’d say. It’s a stand-alone camera. A new type of camera and insofar as that any digital camera has become an accessory to a computer or a phone, so too with this,” he said. “The reason for that comes back to the fact that the intelligence is built into the device to decide when to take these shots, which is really important because it gives users total control over it.”
With the Google Clips AI camera, you can be in the moment and enjoy it to the fullest not hustling with the camera to take pictures to cherish.
