Ever receive a voice message on Messages during study hours at a quiet library, or in the middle of a loud party? Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will now transcribe them for you. You can stay in the loop without distracting your peers or plugging your ears to hear over the crowd. Voice message transcription is available in English, Japanese, German and French, and will roll out to more languages and devices in the coming months.
And Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro use RCS, the modern industry standard for messaging, which enables features like high-resolution photo and video sharing, read receipts, emoji reactions and end-to-end encryption. RCS is already adopted by most of the mobile industry, and now we’re calling on Apple to #GetTheMessage and adopt RCS to make messaging better for everyone.
