Google at the Pixel 6 series fall 2021 event introduced the new change on its recorder app. Now, according to the company the Pixel phone is getting Material You redesign. The Google recorder now supports French, German, and Japanese on the Pixel 6.
This Material You redesign starts on the homescreen with Dynamic Color replacing the pitch/AMOLED black dark theme. If you disabled backup, a generic avatar replaces your profile image in the top-right corner.
Google Recorder 3.0.402827235 with Material You is rolling out via the Play Store, but — in a change — can be easily sideloaded on supported Pixel phones.
If you installed the Google recorder on Pixel phone you can see that, there is a very large and red rectangular button to pause at the bottom. A nice touch sees the “Audio” waveform and “Transcript” placed in its own card. When you open a stored recording, you’ll also see a big MY play button.
Meanwhile, the support for transcribing in three more languages is currently only available on the Pixel 6. This could be due to the new high-quality automatic speech recognition (ASR) models that run on Tensor.
On Pixel 6 Pro & Pixel 6 transcriptions, searches within recordings, and use of the new Google Assistant are available in English, French, German, and Japanese.
On Pixel 3 through 5a (5G) transcriptions, searches within recordings, and use of the new Google Assistant are only available in English.
