Computers without cameras

You can create Flipgrid videos using computers without a built-in camera. If you would like to record with video, select a webcam input for your video. If you would not like to record with video, remember that you can still enable Mic Only and add any effect your device supports. 

iOS and Android Apps

To create a Flipgrid video on a mobile device, members will need to download the free Flipgrid app. Leads can use both the mobile app, mobile browser, or desktop to access their account and manage their groups.

Flipgrid's iOS app requires iOS 13.6 or later. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Please make sure you are using the latest version of the Flipgrid app and we always recommend the latest iOS version. Camera effects are not supported during the video and selfie step for iPhone 6, iPad Air, iPhone SE, and older devices.

Flipgrid's Android app requires Android 6.0 and up. Please make sure you are on the latest version of the Flipgrid app and we always recommend the latest Android OS version. For Android 8.0 and below, trim and split camera editing functionalities are not supported.
