As a guitarist, how well you tune your guitar is just as important as how well you play it. It’s crazy to me that some people can do it by ear but for the rest of us, it’s an art that needs a helper. For some of you it’s a tuner on the guitar and for some it’s an app. However, Google is now adding a way to Tune your guitar right from the search bar.
Tune Your Guitar With Google
First off, these guys are doing everything and we love them for that. This handy tool lets users tune a guitar using the microphone of their device. The inbuilt tuner works like any other guitar tuning app. The instrument tuner can be accessed by simply typing “Google tuner” in the Google Search bar.
How To Use the Google Tuner
It’s pretty simple actually. Just search for “Google tuner” in Google search, and you’ll get an easy to understand chromatic tuner. Best part about it is that it works on both desktop and mobile. The device you’re using it on will need a microphone, of course, for it to work, and results may vary.
Just make the required
- search for Google tuner
- tap the microphone
- grant the required permissions for microphone access, and voila!
The tuner will tell you in clear terms whether you need to turn up or down to hit the nearest note. Just like any other app, this is stated together with a visual indicator that more precisely expresses how sharp or flat you might be. It also works great on the desktop site, assuming your microphone is up to the task.
Give it a try and tell us if you see yourself using that feature.
