Google’s forthcoming Recorder app promises to both record and transcribe audio into text within the Google Pixel 4. But you don’t have to wait—you can check out Google’s underlying speech-to-text technology right now, right on your own Android phone, with Live Transcribe.

Google’s Live Transcribe wound up a native feature in the Google Pixel 3 when it rolled out earlier this year, but it’s also downloadable as a separate Live Transcribe app, requiring just Android 5.0 to work. As the screenshot indicates, Live Transcribe is the basic version of Google’s Recorder app, with a shortcoming or two that we’ll discuss below. One difference is that Live Transcribe requires an Internet connection to perform transcription in the cloud; Recorder will not. 

Google developed Live Transcribe as an assistive technology, though you can use it for productivity’s sake. Recorder was designed for utility from the ground up; it records audio, though transcription is an important, if not critical, secondary feature.

Google Recorder appears to improve upon Live Transcribe

To compare the two Google apps, we simply played back the recorded audio of Google’s presentation, which Google recorded and transcribed via its Recorder app, which will arrive in the Pixel 4. If you review the live stream, you’ll notice that the speaker spoke slowly and precisely. That helps transcription enormously, and both Recorder as well as Live Transcribe nails it—mostly, in the case of Live Transcribe.

Google’s Recorder versus its Live Transcribe app.

That’s because Live Transcribe has an odd habit of pausing or stuttering, getting mostly everything completely right but then simply tripping over a phrase or two. It doesn’t happen often, but enough that the gap in the transcription is noticeable. You’ll notice this in the minute or two of audio we transcribed, there’s a difference between what Recorder transcribed (“We’ve had a Pixel 4 recording the show…”) and what Live Transcribe noted. This is either a bug, or perhaps some hiccup in my Wi-Fi setup that prevented an accurate transcription. In any event, it’s apparently been fixed within Recorder.

Transcription—any transcription, basically—also struggles with where to break a sentence and begin a new one. To its credit, Live Transcribe at least tries. There’s a keyboard option for you to correct mistakes, too.
