Google’s useful Recorder app is getting a small replace that allows cloud backups and on-line entry to recordings.
Noticed by 9to5Google, the replace brings Recorder to model 2.2. The primary time you launch the app after updating, a pop-up asks if you wish to again up your recordings.
“You possibly can again up your recordings to your Google Account at recorder.google.com. Flip backup on or off anytime in settings,” the pop-up reads. It additionally provides customers the choice to choose between Google accounts and choose whether or not to maintain recordings offline or again them up.
It’s value noting that backups seem to rely towards your Google One storage, so maintain that in thoughts when making the choice. Additional, the replace provides your Google account profile image to the Recorder app’s prime right-hand nook. As with different Google apps, like Pictures, the profile icon doubles as a backup standing indicator. You possibly can faucet it to handle account settings or to entry Recorder’s settings.
When you allow backups, you’ll be capable to entry the online app too. You possibly can sort ‘recorder.google.com‘ into your browser’s deal with bar to view uploaded recordings, hearken to them, or learn the transcript. There’s additionally a side-by-side view that allows you to view the audio and transcript on the similar time.
Lastly, the replace allows a brand new sharing function for backed-up recordings. Since recordings get saved within the cloud, customers can generate shareable hyperlinks to ship recordings to different individuals.
For somebody like me, who commonly makes use of the Recorder app for work, accessing the audio and transcripts on my pc makes Recorder a way more handy resolution. Shareable hyperlinks also can assist with collaboration on bigger tasks.
Recorder model 2.2 is rolling out via a Play Store update now, though it’s not but broadly out there (of the few Android gadgets I attempted, just one had the replace).
