Google revealed its new Recorder app with AI capabilities alongside with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones. Google confirmed that the Recorder app was exclusive to the Pixel 4 Series, but eventually, it will be rolled out to older Pixel smartphones.
Nevertheless, tech-heads have side-loaded the recorder app APK, so did we, and surprisingly enough, they found the app on non-Pixel smartphones.
Google Recorder With Auto-Transcription
The Google Recorder app, unlike a normal voice recorder, comes with some nifty feature. It comes with features like Auto transcription, Audio search, and even works offline too.
- Auto-transcription: As it sounds, this feature transcribes your speech so that you can find what you need later.
- Audio search: This feature helps you find words, music, and sounds.

No complication, all you got to do is just Tap Record to start recording your speech and you can find your speech auto-transcribed in real-time in the dedicated ‘Transcript’ section found next to the ‘Audio’ tab.
In addition to that, you can add title, location to save your recordings as well as use the transcript feature to the transcript your voice recording which can be shared, saved to Google Drive, and can be deleted too. Not just that, using the Audio search feature, you can search for words, phrases, or sounds, like music or applause and can find the exact time the word was spoken, or sound occurred.
