Tech mogul Google has corroborated that the Pixel camera app is coming with an external microphone support. This was announced ahead of its Pixel 3 launch on Thursday.

“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,” said a Pixel employee on an old post on Google product.

The Verge had reported on Sunday that the update about the external microphone support on older Pixel phones should become available at the same time as the retail launch of Pixel 3.

Creators and users recorded video using a Pixel device while some third-party Android camera apps like Open Camera have already allowed external microphones to record audios.

The older models are also set to gain many new camera software features in addition to the external microphone support to the Pixel phones.

Google had officially launched Pixel 3 alongside a bigger Pixel 3 XL smartphone on October 9.
