The other feature this local model enables is a new app:
Recorder. It’s a voice recorder, but it also does real-time
transcription right there as it records without needing to send
anything to the internet. In a couple of tests, I found it to be
much more accurate than the other real-time transcription app
I’ve used, Otter. You can also do searches for anything in those
There’s a lot more that’s new, of course, but instant accurate transcripts in the voice recorder app is a killer feature. It’s all done on-device too.
