The Recorder app was born in the fourth generation of the Google terminal, although the new editor comes along with the launch of Google Pixel 5. The arrival of this new functionality incorporates a very powerful and useful tool to convert texts into audios, also editable.
Google Recorder allows you to edit recordings of transcribed texts
It is a second version that Google has designed for its latest flagship, based on previous versions of the application. This function allows trim parts of recorded audio simply selecting the transcribed text and cutting it out. This makes it easy to remove unwanted audio from a recording without having to listen to the entire audio. In short, it is a smarter editor that offers the ability to remove unwanted parts.
The application allows us to cut directly from the audio as in any audio editing application, or thanks to its audio transcription, edit the recording as if it were a document, selecting the text we want to remove the audio. Of course, at the moment only English transcription works.
The new version of the application will also allow us create videos with visual waveform to accompany your recordings, along with transcripts, so that we can share them on social media. We even have the option to choose between 1: 1, vertical or horizontal aspect ratios. Speaking of sharing, it is a function that has also been implemented in the app to spread it through social networks. On the other hand, transcripts take place offline, so it does not always require an internet connection.
How to download Recorder on Google on any Android
Despite the fact that we have talked about the exclusivity of this app for the latest devices, Android users always have our ins and outs to get what is supposedly not possible. In this case, we cannot download the app from the Play Store, but we can if we look for it from other sources.
Specifically, the Google Recorder app can be obtained from an APK, where several repositories such as APKMirror they already have it under their belt. However, since it is not compatible at first, some requirements must be taken into account. Basically works on terminals with Android 9 or 10, as there are no for older versions:
