Google Clips camera now shipping, but new orders appear to be on hold

Google Clips smart camera uses machine learning to know when to take photos

Just days after it was spotted passing FCC certification, Google has now begun shipping its AI-powered Google Clips camera.

The lifeblogging camera is now shipping, but according to The Verge Google has stopped taking new orders for the Clips camera.

Instead, Google is asking people to join a waiting list and promising to send them a notification when more units are available.

Shipping dates have also varied, with customers reporting dates ranging from 27 February to 5 March.

Google Clips, which was launched last October when the company debuted the Pixel 2 phone, is designed for hands-free photography and uses machine learning to recognise ‘good scenes’ and then take a picture.
