The Pixel’s Recorder app has been updated to version 3.7, which adds a number of usability improvements like support for the Android 13 media player. This update is part of the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1 release.
Version 3.7.454794857 (updated from 3.5.456678826) has already been installed with Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1 and is not yet available through the Play Store.
The Pixel Recorder app now supports the Android 13 media player, aiming for API level 33, joining other first-party apps including Chrome, Google Podcasts, and YouTube Music.
The progress bar is now in the middle and is surrounded by a 5-second rewind and 10-second forward buttons, similar to other updated notifications. There is also a large play/pause button at the right. After the app’s icon, this notice has a red and salmon hue.
You can immediately see “Create video clip” and “Export transcript to Google Docs” when you tap a recording’s three-button overflow menu. The Share sheet previously contained those two functions, but they are now more noticeable, increasing their feasibility and utilization.
The bright red “Currently recording” signal took a few seconds to appear once a session started due to a relatively recent fault, which has been fixed. It now manifests instantly, like it did before.
The final change in version 3.7 is that some buttons and dialog boxes are modified so they no longer take up the entire width of your screen.
Recorder’s previous version (3.5), released in March, added a Quick Settings tile, UI changes, and an incredibly tablet-like landscape orientation.
It’s unclear whether this Recorder upgrade will be broadly released during Android 13 QPR1’s stable release to Pixel phones in December or arrive earlier.
