Another Pixel 4 leak reveals a transcription-centric Recorder app

  Another Pixel 4 leak reveals a transcription-centric Recorder app Google's not doing a great job of keeping details of its forthcoming Pixel 4 quiet. Following leaks about its take on accessible Face ID, and more recently its car crash detection feature, new info has emerged about its updated Recorder app. At the moment, Google's simple Recorder app lets you record audio from a microphone, and not much else. But according to Mishaal Rahman at XDA Developers, it's set to get an upgrade that'll make it a lotNow it seems that the app will include automatic transcription of audio, along with an audio search function that will you find specific words or phrases from any single recording.

Frustrated that the Pixel 4 's signature Smooth Display (aka 90Hz refresh rate) only kicks in under very specific circumstances? You'll get more of the 90Hz smoothness you paid for.

Every device launch is accompanied by an initial set of bugs and others problems, with the latest Made by Google phones being no exception. The first Pixel 4 update today with the November security patch lets the Smooth Display work in more conditions, while Google touts “camera quality improvements.”.

Frustrated that the Pixel 4's signature Smooth Display (aka 90Hz refresh rate) only kicks in under very specific circumstances? You might want to give it another look. Google has released a November update that invokes Smooth Display in more conditions. Based on early reports, the faster screen tech is considerably more likely to appear -- you don't need a brightness of 75 percent or higher, for example. There's no verdict on battery life at this point, although it won't be surprising if longevity takes a hit with more frequent 90Hz use.

The same update also brings unspecified "camera quality improvements" to Pixel 4 owners, while those with older models also see improvements for Google Assistant's hotword, Xbox Bluetooth controller mapping and problems with getting stuck during the boot process. If you have a Pixel phone that still receives updates (sorry original Pixel owners), you'll likely want to install this update sooner rather than later.

Pixel 4 has a huge flaw that no software update is going to fix .
Google has started fixing the Pixel 4 with the help of software updates, which has become sort of an annoying tradition for the phone series. For the time being, Google solved the Smooth Display issue, and it still has to fix the 3D face unlock security lapse that lets you unlock the phone even when your eyes are closed. But it turns out the Pixel 4 has a massive flaw that no amount of software updates can fix. It bends. We’ve come a long wayWe’ve come a long way from 2014, which is when early iPhone 6 buyers discovered an annoying problem. Apply enough pressure on those first-gen thin aluminum frames, and you could bend them without damaging the structure of the phone.
