Google updates the camera app on Pixel smartphones to work with an external microphone when shooting videos, as confirmed by an engineering team member of this app. The Android police reported on features scheduled for Friday.
Pixel is famous for taking great pictures, and Google has developed an impressive stabilization of the video's end of things. However, Pixel's microphone captures too much audio. An external microphone connected to the USB-C port (or headphone jack for the original Pixel) can be solved.
Third-party Android camera applications such as Open Camera can already record audio from an external microphone. Pixels process video. However, having an option in an inventory application would be useful for video creators and others who use Pixel as a content creation tool.
This update will be available at the same time as the Pixel 3 retail release on October 18th. "At the same time as the launch of Pixel 3 (Oct. 18), we will be supporting Android-compatible plug-in microphones in the default camera application for every pixel," the engineer wrote in the Google Forum. If you know of a reviewed external microphone that works well on Android, please use & # 39; em & # 39; as part of Shure and Apogee on iOS.
External microphone support is a niche market, but previous versions of Pixels will get a lot of new camera software features from Google at the Pixel 3 event.
