Evernote Adds Ability to Transcribe Voice-to-Text Notes via AirPods, BeatsX, More

Evernote, the popular Note-taking app has been updated with a new feature that allows you to connect your Bluetooth earphones to the app and use them to record audio and transcribe voice-to-text notes. The Note-taking app’s company says that as long as the wireless headphones have a microphone they will work, so if your own Apple’s AirPods or BeatsX you’ll be able to access the wireless earphones to quickly jot down notes and reminders using your voice and Evernote.

To use the feature, you’ve to make sure your Bluetooth headphones are on and connected to the iPhone, which can be double checked in the Settings app > Bluetooth. Next open Evernote, tap the large ‘+’ button at the bottom of the screen to create a new note, then tap the microphone icon at the bottom right of the keyboard on iOS. As long as the headphones are connected, Evernote will now route audio from the headphone’s microphone instead of the iPhone. So you can transcribe notes or save audio files without needing to hold your iPhone up to your mouth.

If your bluetooth headphones also have a microphone (*cough* Apple AirPods *cough*), you’ll be happy to know you can now use them to record audio into Evernote.

Version 8.12 update also brings in a tweak to the note list view so you can better keep track of where you are in your notes. With mouth and year designators staying pinned at the top of the screen as your browse Evernote. The company also cleaned up the sharing menu, brought back the Context feature for Premium and Business users, and fixed a handful of bugs.

Previously, Evernote debuted full “Hey Siri” support allowing iPhone owners to use phrases like “Hey Siri, add ‘I should bring pizza’ to my Meeting Ideas note in Evernote.” The app has along supported voice notes and transcribing features on iOS with iPhone and iPad’s built-in microphone. But this new addition of Bluetooth headphone support should make note-taking easier for many users.

Evernote can be downloaded at no cost (free) on iOS App Store [Direct Link]. While Evernote Premium only available for $7.99 monthly basis, or $69.99 annually, which comes with more monthly storage space, unlimited devices, and more.
