Google's voice recorder app is heading to older Pixel phones

  Google's voice recorder app is heading to older Pixel phones One of the niftiest features Google revealed for Pixel 4 at the device's launch event last month was a Recorder app, which captures and transcribes audio simultaneously. Owners of older Pixel devices won't necessarily miss out, however, as Google revealed in a Reddit thread it plans to bring Recorder to other phones. Google has often added features it debuts on its latest flagship handsets to its older devices and even its iOS apps, so the news it'd make Recorder more broadly available was somewhat expected from the jump. The app is useful for people who hate taking notes or need to quote speech accurately (such as your friendly neighborhood journalists).

Google introduced a lot of cool new Pixel camera features at last week’ s event, but two will apparently remain exclusive to the brand-new Pixel 4 and Hi Mahfooz, Dual Exposure Controls and Live HDR+ require low-level capabilities in the hardware that are only available on Pixel 4 , so they will not be

Google has confirmed that the Pixel 4 ' s dual exposure feature and Live HDR+ functionality won ' t be coming to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a series. The news means you should get the Pixel 4 if you officially want these features , although I’m sure unofficial Google Camera ports will attempt to bring

Google introduced a lot of cool new Pixel camera features at last week’s event. Some of them, like astrophotography mode, will be coming to older Pixel devices. But two will apparently remain exclusive to the brand-new Pixel 4 and 4 XL: dual exposure controls, which let you adjust highlights and shadows right from your viewfinder, and Live HDR+, which gives you a live preview of what your photo will look like with Google’s HDR processing applied.

Google confirmed that these features are Pixel 4 exclusives in a reply to a customer’s tweet (via 9to5Google):

It seems possible that the “low-level capabilities in the hardware” that Google is referring to involve the Pixel 4’s new Pixel Neural Core co-processor. We’ve asked Google for more information and will update this article with anything the company shares.

The Pixel 4 hits stores and carriers beginning tomorrow, October 22nd, and it’s a pretty good Android phone. But if you’re planning to stick with a Pixel 3 or 3A, you’ll still be getting some of the new software capabilities introduced last week, according to this handy list compiled by 9to5Google, such as astrophotography mode and Live Caption.

One of the Pixel 4’s most impressive features is coming soon to older models .
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.
