Google: 75 percent of Pixel owners are running Android Pie

Google: 75 percent of Pixel owners are running Android Pie

This update incorporating the external microphone support on older Pixel phones should become available at the same time as the retail launch of "Pixel 3", The Verge reported on Sunday. Now two years later, a member from Google's Pixel engineering team has confirmed that support is coming. So to achieve better sounding videos, users needed third-party camera apps.

To improve the user experience, Google has recently added 13 new languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, French etc which the Google Translate can read and translate into other languages which can be understood by the users. However, despite the unparalleled computational photography performance, the Pixel phones have always been lacking one thing - the ability to record audio via external microphones using the stock camera app. Google has heard complaints about the issue and is now ready to fix it. Soon, you won't need to buy the overpriced Pixel Buds to get that feature. Luckily, the software update will apparently be applied to all versions of the Google Pixel device.

Trump steps up his attacks on Federal Reserve's rate hikes
Now, explaining market actions through psychology is probably as much a mug's game as psychoanalyzing a Fed chair from afar. US stocks opened lower on Thursday but seesawed between losses of as much as a percentage point and small gains.

To be clear, the Google Pixel 3 still shows promising camera functions and image outputs based on the official unveiling event earlier this month and hands-on reviews. Of course, it could also be that Google's Pixel line-up has a smaller market share than Apple's iPhones, and thus has an easier time pushing its userbase to update. Users will now be able to plug in compatible external microphones to the ports on all the Pixel smartphones. People can now pre-order the Google Pixel 3 with a price starting at $799.
