This feature has been available only on the Pixel Buds when paired with a Google Pixel smartphone. But that will change along with the retail launch of Google Pixel 3. The search-giant, now looking to become a hardware behemoth has seemingly confirmed that all of its Pixel phones will soon support external microphones. So to achieve better sounding videos, users needed third-party camera apps. You can access the feature by using the voice command "hey Google, help me interpret..." followed by your language of choice.
Notably, while the support page does not give a list of the headphones that support Google Assistant, based on what we know Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II, Sony 1000XM2, JBL Everest 110GA, OnePlus Bullets and Sony WI-1000X are some of the device that feature support for the company's virtual assistant.
Since 2016, Pixel users have been complaining about the lack of support the default camera app has for external microphones.
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. 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. "I hope you all enjoy the update", the Google employee wrote in an official Google online forum. DxOMark is an established organization trusted for its reviews of consumer-level camera products.
