This Pixel camera update has been a long time coming.

The camera tends to be a major selling point for Google’s Pixel phones, and this year’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are no different. That’s why it’s nice to see Google listen to fans when they request a certain camera feature.

Google said in a forum post on Friday that it’ll be adding support for external microphones to the Pixel camera app (via 9to5Google). This means Pixel users will be able to use USB-C and external plug-in mics when shooting video on their phones.

The forum post asking about the feature has been around since 2016. Google says that on Oct. 18 — the day the Pixel 3 launches — it will add external mic support to all Pixel phones — that includes old and new generations.

In related news, a Google Pixel 3 will reportedly be used to film Eminem’s performance for Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week.

Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
