Google’s Recorder app for the Pixel 4 flagship is quite an interesting piece of tech since it can transcribe very fast audio files recorded on the phone. It’s ideal for those moments when a teacher is talking about a lesson, and you, as a student, need to take notes. The classical and annoying notes on the paper have been finally abolished, with such apps being rising. Therefore, we can expect the Recorder to have more and more applications in the educational field.
But why not insert the app for more Pixel phones? This is exactly what Google intends to. The great news has been launched in a Reddit comment by Google’s Pixel Community account. Android Police was the first site to spot it. The news was confirmed by a spokesperson from Google.
But why Recorder?
Nowadays, there are numerous automatic transcription services, but Recorder has the advantage that it works even without an Internet connection. And probably the best news is that Google’s Recorder is free of charge. And yes, let’s be honest: nobody rushes to pay for a piece of software these days.
Also, nobody rushes to buy a new phone just for an app, no matter how good that app is. And all major companies on the planet know that. Therefore, if you want the Recorder app on your old Pixel phone, you can try sideloading a Recorder app APK.
Is it worth buying a Pixel 4?
Well, most tech analysts would say “yes”. The Pixel 4 is Google’s flagship released in October, and it couldn’t be below other flagships built by other major manufacturers. It’s equipped with 6 GB of RAM on both versions: 64 GB and 128 GB of internal storage. As a chipset, the flagship has a Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon 855 (7 nm). Its display is a P-OLED 5.7 inches capacitive touchscreen, and it can display photos shot with either the main camera which is 12.2 MP, f/1.7, 28mm (wide), 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, dual pixel PDAF, OIS, or with the selfie camera: 8 MP, f/2.0, 22mm (wide), 1.22µm, no AF.
