Google Will Finally Let You Use External Mics on Pixel Phones

Google: Pixel camera app to support external mics soon

Real-time Google Translate is coming to all Google Assistant enabled headphones

San Francisco: Ahead of its Pixel 3 launch on Thursday, Google has confirmed that the Pixel camera app is coming with an external microphone support. Some unedited test photos from the camera are at the end of the video. With every downloadable phone app released that supports the feature (like Open Camera), the frustration from mobile video enthusiasts rose.

From a somewhat more obvious standpoint, the older Pixels are also barred from using the Pixel Stand, or assuming the unique UI that is associated with the new Google charging station.

In other news related to the Google Pixel 3, DxOMark has yet to reveal its verdict but there are rumors that it will be somewhat underwhelming. Luckily, as consumers get their Google Pixel 3 smartphones this week, they will no longer deal with this issue. Users will now be able to plug in compatible external microphones to the ports on all the Pixel smartphones. You can access the feature by using the voice command "hey Google, help me interpret..." followed by your language of choice. DxOMark is an established organization trusted for its reviews of consumer-level camera products.

As the device's bezels will likely continue to decrease in size, it may not result in the phone's dimensions being that different. The phone's thickness will probably remain more or less the same as well, and as a reminder, the Galaxy Note 9 is 8.8mm thick.

The search-engine giant officially took the veils off "Pixel 3" alongside a bigger "Pixel 3 XL" smartphone on October 9.

On a more positive note, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL are eligible for Playground, a range of new augmented-reality stickers that add characters from the Marvel and Disney universes to their camera views. The Google Pixel 3 reportedly fell short in reclaiming the top spot. But earlier reports claim it will not be enough to beat the Huawei P20 series, which was given 109 - the highest score ever.
