**Google Adds Support for Favorites and Audio Channel Selection in Pixel Recorder**
Google has introduced new features to enhance the user experience of Pixel devices. One of the updates includes the ability to mark important recordings with a star icon, making it easier to find them in the list. These favorite recordings will also be displayed in a dedicated feed and can be accessed from any device through recorder.google.com.
In addition to favoriting recordings, Google has also added the option to choose the audio channel between mono and stereo in the Pixel recorder. This feature allows users to optimize the stereo effect and file size based on their specific use case.
While audio recordings do not take up much storage space, selecting the appropriate audio channel can be beneficial in certain situations. For instance, if you only need to capture a single source, like your voice, there is no need for separate left and right channels. Switching to mono audio will reduce the file size without compromising the quality, as it combines data from the stereo microphone setup into a single channel.
These updates come as part of the recent rollout following the launch of the Pixel 8 series, providing Pixel device users with improved functionality in the Pixel recorder.
