Google's Recorder app now lets Pixel users edit audio on the fly

Google's Recorder app now lets Pixel users edit audio on the fly

As expected, Google has unveiled the new Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 smartphones and a revamped Chromecast HDMI dongle at its 'Launch Night in' event.

The new Chromecast, officially named the "Chromecast with Google TV", differs from its predecessors in having an onboard operating system and a dedicated remote.

In addition, Google also introduced 5G-enabled phone Pixel 5, with a starting price of $699.

Pixel 4a 5G will be available in Japan on October 15 and eight other countries starting in November. We conducted multiple studies and spoke with child and mental health experts from around the world, and found that when you're not aware that a camera or photo app has applied a filter, the photos can negatively impact mental wellbeing. Like the Nest Mini, the Nest Audio is draped in fabric and comes in an array of colors to compliment your home aesthetic.

One of the upgrades Google listed for the Pixel 5 over the 4a 5G is the use of "100 percent recycled aluminum" on the back, rather than plastic.

In terms of audio formats, they both support similar audio codecs including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Atmos. The Chromecast with Google TV has dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac connectivity, apart from Bluetooth. Portrait pictures taken on the phone can be retouched with proper lightning using AI, a function Google refers to as 'Portrait Light'. Then you'll need to download this third-party app that allows you to launch alternative launchers on Android TV - you can't start the Google TV launcher without it. There is no IR transmitter in the remote. I can already see how many consumers may get confused by thinking that Google is now offering two, separate streaming services but that's not what Google TV is about.

The Recorder app, available on Google's Pixel phones from the Pixel 2 onward, is getting a couple of improvements via Google's latest update.

This is not to say that higher-end and premium Android devices will not run Android better.

Now that the dust has settled and we know the exact contours of the Google Pixel smartphone line-up for 2020, it is time to take a stock of what you can buy, and what you can't.

Google TV is essentially a version of Android TV branded for Chromecast. According to The Verge, that feature won't become available until some time next year. All the devices are unbelievable consumer products that merge both hardware and software advancements at a great price. Most of us turned it off, but it was a technology we once drooled over.
