Google Recorded app is coming to older Pixel phones

Google is Bringing its Next-Level Transcription App — Google Recorder — to Older Pixel Phones

Google is expanding support for the Google Recorder transcription app beyond its sole Pixel 4 exclusivity to older devices…

The Google Recorder app, which debuted with the release of the Pixel 4 phone, wowed the internet. Although there are many transcription apps available to consumers, this is definitely among the most impressive. But, it was exclusive to the Pixel 4 — that is, until now.

Google Recorder App is Coming to Older Pixel Devices

The news quietly came through a Reddit comment in the Pixel Community and spotted by Android Police. However, it’s not necessarily going to roll out to every phone running Android. It will only be available to older Pixel devices and which ones aren’t named.

Google still might expand its availability in the future, since it works without an internet connection. And, that’s particularly useful in emerging markets and rural areas where connections are weak.


Thanks for expressing interest in the Recorder app. We plan to roll it out to older Pixel devices in a future software update.”
