How To Use Pixel 4 Facial Recognition On LastPass

  How To Use Pixel 4 Facial Recognition On LastPass Despite being so new, plenty of third-party apps already support some of the Pixel 4's unique features. One of those apps just happens to be one of our favourite password managers, LastPass, which supports the Pixel 4's biometric unlock capabilities. Assuming you’ve already set up facial recognition data on your Pixel 4, LastPass users can get into all their saved apps and accounts with just their smilin’ mug—but first, you need to turn the setting on in LastPass. Open the LastPass Android app. Tap the three-stacked dots icon. Tap “Settings,” then “Security.” Scroll down and turn on “Use biometrics to unlock.

In a roundabout way, Google has confirmed that one of the features which immediately stood out when the Pixel 4 was first unveiled about a month ago — the super fast and useful Recorder app that transcribes audio — is coming soon to older Pixel models via a software update.

In a roundabout way, Google has confirmed that one of the features which immediately stood out when the Pixel 4 was first unveiled about a month ago — the super fast and useful Recorder app that transcribes audio — is coming soon to older Pixel models via a software update.

This free app is, as we said, fast and mostly accurate. And reporters, in particular, soon started raving about it on Twitter, given that transcribing interview recordings is one of the more thankless and time-consuming aspects of the job. A Google Pixel Community account confirmed the news that the app is coming to earlier Pixels via a Reddit comment, though it wasn’t immediately clear what kind of timetable this is on nor which specific older Pixel models the feature is coming to.

Google's New Phone Has An Excellent Pokémon Gimmick

  Google's New Phone Has An Excellent Pokémon Gimmick I picked up my new Pixel 4XL yesterday, and instead of rushing to test out the new camera, radar features or terrifyingly fast face-scanning, the first thing I did with the new phone wasplay with some interactive Pokémon wallpapers. The Pixel 4 has an app called Pokémon Wave Hello, which is part Sword & Shield promo, part tutorial/testbed for the phones motion and gesture controls. It asks you to swipe around to open a Pokeball, then swipe some more as you interact with the Pokemon that pop out, waving at them and giving them pets.

Aside from its camera, Pixel 4 also ships with a powerful voice recording app. Simply dubbed Recorder, this app not only records Audio but also offers “Thanks for expressing interest in the Recorder app. We plan to roll it out to older Pixel devices in a future software update,” a Google rep said on Reddit.

Notwithstanding the fact that this one more in a long line of examples of Google taking cues from the iPhone since the earliest days of the Pixel series, we’re already on record as saying the app is a solid improvement over the equivalent Voice Memos app on the iPhone.

Google’s voice recording app comes with automatic transcription and audio search features, which — not to seem like all I’m doing is banging the drum for my fellow journalists — but when you’ve got like 100+ old voice memo files sitting around, a search feature that will take you right to the spot within one of those files can be monumentally useful.

One commenter on that Reddit thread above praised Google’s move to bring features like this one to older Pixel models, arguing that “A 2-yr old phone from any other company doesn’t get this treatment.” Google’s official description of the recorder app is as follows:

“The new Recorder app on Pixel 4 brings the power of search and AI to audio recording. You can record meetings, lectures, jam sessions — anything you want to save and listen to later. Recorder automatically transcribes speech and tags sounds like music, applause, and more, so you can search your recordings to quickly find the part you’re looking for. All Recorder functionality happens on-device, so your audio never leaves your phone. We’re starting with English for transcription and search, with more languages coming soon.”

Google Assistant 2.0 Is Coming To Older Android Phones .
Google Assistant has been simultaneously helping and frustrating us for years but with the Pixel 4, it was given a fresh new face. While only Pixel 4 users currently have access to Assistant 2.0, older devices are reportedly getting the update too.
