Google Recorder is one of the best apps you’ll find on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, thanks to how well it can automatically transcribe captured audio and even create subtitles for muted videos. And now we’ve got good news for owners of other Pixels: Google is finally porting this app over to the Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a smartphones (and their larger XL counterparts).

Even if you don’t have a Pixel, you might still luck out. Android Police reports that many users have sideloaded Google Recorder onto non-Pixel phones, with varying degrees of success.

  Delete Unused Apps To Protect Your Android From Vulnerabilities Regularly uninstalling unused apps from your smartphone (and disabling unnecessary app permissions) does more than just free up extra storage space—it helps keep your personal data safe. Case in point: Several third-party Android apps were recently implicated in a data breach that affected millions of Facebook and Twitter users. Twitter disclosed the details of the attack in a blog post on Monday. A number of third-party apps containing malicious software were able to exploit vulnerabilities in Android devices to access certain Twitter and Facebook account information.

Pixel 2, 3, 3a and 4 users can grab the Google Recorder app from its Google Play store page, while everyone else can sideload the latest version by downloading the installation file from APK Mirror. Once the file is downloaded to your device, tap to run it and allow for installations from unrecognised sources. (Don’t worry—the .APK file is safe to download and use.)

Most non-Pixel Android phones should be able to at least install Google Recorder using the APK file, but performance will vary, and you may run into bugs or crashes—it’s not officially supported, after all.

Even if the app doesn’t work right now, it’s possible a future update may work for you; just keep an eye out for any new app versions that hit APK Mirror and sideload them using the aforementioned method. Of course, it’s also possible Google may extend Google Recorder support to other Android devices in the future, but that’s just speculation.

Evidence is mounting that people are fed up with the sky-high cost of smartphones, and it's sparking a massive change in the industry .
New data says that fewer than 10% of consumers in the United States are willing to spend $US1,000 on a new smartphone. The report comes as smartphone prices have gradually increased in recent years. As smartphone prices have gotten higher and shipments across the industry have stalled, companies like Apple,Samsung, and Google have altered their strategy by launching more affordable smartphones.
