Google Recorder And Live Caption App Arrives For Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3A

Google's AI-powered Recorder app, which has so far been available exclusively for Pixel 4 owners, is now compatible with the Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3a series phones.

The Recorder app uses the power of artificial intelligence to automatically transcribe the users' audio recordings and it also lets its users search for specific parts of a clip. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

The search engine giant also claims that the app is able to label users recording based on what it hears. In other words, it can tell the difference between the spoken word and, say, a recorded jam session in the studio.

Google announced the extended availability of the Recorder app in a tweet. The company noted that the app only supports English right now. There is no word on when other languages will be supported. There is no clarity on the geographical availability on the app as well. However, Kickedface can confirm that Recorder can be downloaded in India for Pixel smartphones.

Live Caption is an app where you can take any video that’s playing on your phone and have it show captures on your screen. It’s great for those with hearing impairments, but it’s also great when you are in a quiet environment and still want to watch a video. Although the captions are not always 100% accurate and sometimes fall a bit behind. Still, it’s better than not having it.

You’ll likely need to be on the latest December Android patch to get this on your Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a. Once on that build, head into your phone’s settings and search for “Live Caption.” You can also find it by going into Settings and tapping on the “Sound” section.

Google says it is rolling out now, in case you don’t see it just yet.
