The Google Recorder web application runs in real time, which allows you to obtain audio recordings in real time. The AI-based Recorder app was released with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in 2019, and entered older Pixel smartphone models in December of the same year. Now, Pixel users will also be able to view the transcription of their recordings on the web application. This web application allows you to “share, play and search audio”, and the URL of the URL is different from the recorder.withgoogle.com webpage.
Now, the Recorder Web application is available on recorder.google.com, which allows you to share, play and search for recorded audio files. It shows recordings backed up from the Recorder app on Google Pixel phones. The Recorder app is available for Pixel 2 and higher and uses AI to display real-time transcription of recordings. With Pixel 5, the app has been updated and can be edited and shared on social media platforms. However, so far, it is not clear whether these additional features can be used on the Web application.
The interface of the Recorder Web application has a search bar at the bottom, as well as play/pause buttons, fast-rewind and fast-forward buttons, volume control, and options that seem to change the recording layout.
According to a 9to5Google report, Recorder for Web requires Pixel users to update the application on their mobile phone to start uploading content to the cloud, and then the content can be accessed from the web application. The report also pointed out that the web application will not allow users to record audio, but will only transcribe audio recorded and uploaded from Pixel phones.
The idea of the desktop interface is to make it easier for users to classify long recordings, which may not be ideal on the screen of a mobile phone. This will also make finding (or scrolling) records easier.
