Google recently added backup and sync capabilities to its Recorder app. With this additional feature, you can save your recordings to your Google account. The software giant has also added a web interface to help you easily access your saved clip on the web. In this article, we will discuss the steps to set up automatic backup in the Google recorder app and how you can access your recordings using your web browser.
Play Google Recorder clips on the web
Google Recorder has acquired a backup feature with its latest version 2.2 update. Therefore, you must be using this version or a newer version to use this feature. You can grab the latest update from Google Play Store. Also, it goes without saying that this feature is limited to Pixel phones. You can load an older version of the Recorder app on your phone, but you cannot use it to back up your recordings. With that out of the way, let’s start with the steps.
1. Open Google Recorder and tap your avatar in the upper right corner. From the pop-up that now appears, choose “Recorder settings”.
2. Locate the option ‘Backup and sync’ in the General section of the recorder settings and tap on it. From the Backup and Sync page, enable the toggle. Your recordings will now be uploaded to your account.
3. Now that you’ve uploaded your recordings, here’s how to access them. All you gotta do is open the official site of Google Recorder. You can then access your recordings on the fly. The best part is that you can also view the transcript alongside the recording. Although an export option is missing on the web (you can export transcripts from your phone), the text is selectable and you can manually copy the transcript if needed. This is what the recorder web client looks like:
