Google looking into Pixel 2 XL bug that affects volume of audio clips sent via a messaging app

The latest problem affecting the Google Pixel 2 XL is one that Google is already looking into. Complaints have been posted on the Pixel User Community of the Google Product Forum. According to these posts, voice clips sent through a messaging app by a Pixel 2 XL carrying this bug, are arriving on a recipient’s phone with very low volume.

Apple Clips on iPhone X updated with 360-degree selfie video recording, iCloud integration

As it stands, Apple Clips is sort of a middle ground between iOS’s automatic slideshow feature and the much more involved iMovie. The app was made with short videos in mind and offers users a wide variety of built-in image filters to toy around with, as well as the so-called Live Titles, which are basically animated (and optionally user-voiced) captions to go along with videos.

Google Clips hands-on

At Google’s most recent announcement in San Francisco, they laid out a diversified portfolio this year consisting of usual suspects, like its Pixel smartphones, and new things that are aiming to revolutionize the way we communicate (think real-time translation with the Pixel Buds). Well, they’re seemingly pushing into new territory with its new Google Clips camera.

Most people would assume that it’s another GoPro clone of sorts, but the intent of Google Clips is entirely different. Rather than tackling the over-crowded action camera space, Google’s offering is focused …

Google Clips is an AI-powered camera that takes photos for you

Here you see the freshly announced Google Clips – an entirely new type of camera, as its maker described it. That’s a bold claim on Google’s part, but it might not be far from the truth, given how this gizmo operates. 
Although it kind of looks like a GoPro, Google Clips isn’t an action camera. It is designed with parents and pet owners in mind, Google says, and it is built with a clip that doubles as a stand for easier positioning. But that’s far from exciting, we know.
