A sound recording application has been released by Google for its newly released Pixel 4 smartphone. This application is simply called Recorder, and it recognizes speech and uses artificial intelligence to produce a written transaction of the recording.

Users will be able to search for words and phrases as well as other sounds, like music an applause in recordings.

Voice recognition and AI are critical components of the Google Assistant. As these technologies develop in the future, they’ll eventually affect the way users discover and interact with brands.

The Recorder app is only available for the Pixel 4 and in English, to start. The transcription process happens directly on the device, meaning that no internet connection is required.
