Google introduced an AI-powered camera feature called Top Shot with the Pixel 3 last year. Top Shot was an upgraded version of Google's Motion Photo feature that shipped with previous Pixel smartphones. The feature produces a small video clip while you're taking photos, allowing you to go back and switch to a specific moment, much like Apple's Live Photos feature on iOS. Now the feature will soon work for short videos as well.

The new Top Shot feature will work on the Pixel 4, Pixel 3, and the Pixel 3a phones. By short videos, Google means you'll be able to record a video in 768 x 1024 resolution. The feature is expected to arrive as a software update shortly.

According to Google, when users capture a motion photo or a quick video, the Camera app will recommend another shot from the photo or the video. Users can choose to turn off the feature by tapping on Motion off or set it to Motion auto for the feature to work. Tapping on 'Shots in this photo' or 'Shots in this video' will show up the recommended shots.
