Although some reviews claim that the real-time translation feature is awesome, like the underlying technology Google Translate, the feature has a lot to be desired when translating some languages, such as Thai, which is "officially supported" by the technology. This time, these phones are back with better screens, better cameras, and a big old notch on the Pixel 3 XL. But that will change along with the retail launch of Google Pixel 3.

Google's Pixel Camera app, which comes pre-loaded on all Pixel smartphones, will soon support audio feed from external microphones for recording videos.

Android devices at large may struggle to receive the latest versions of Android, but Google's own Pixel phones don't have any such problems. Luckily, the software update will apparently be applied to all versions of the Google Pixel device.

"At the same time as Pixel 3 launch (October 18), we will introduce support for Android-compatible plugged-in external microphones in the default camera app for all Pixels". This means Pixel users will be able to use USB-C and external plug-in mics when shooting video on their phones.

We're not sure exactly how the feature is going to work on headphones that aren't the Pixel Buds, or if translation will be limited to specific models from third-party manufacturers, but it looks like as far as Google is concerned it's open to all. "I hope you all enjoy the update", this was highlighted on the Google Forum.

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.
