Shorts season: An introduction to the NEW Flipgrid camera

In August of 2019, Flipgrid added some amazing new functionality to their camera recording system. These updates included filters, text boxes, emojis, image and video uploads, drawing, and whiteboards. Then earlier this year, they also added the ability to screenrecord.

But they didn’t stop there.

Over the summer, Flipggrid released a host of major changes to their platform and these include MAJOR upgrades to the camera. Below I’ll walk you through some of the new features offered so you can see how easy it is for you and your students to create and share!

And of course, it’s completely free.

An introduction to the NEW Flipgrid Shorts Camera

When you first enter the camera, you will see this view. From the record view, you will be able to set up a canvas for a live recording or upload a video. Flipgrid supports uploads of .MOV, .MP4, and WEBM files. One important note: if you exit the video using the x in the upper left corner, you will lose all your work.
