Google has added another nifty feature to its search engine – the option to use it as a guitar tuner. The folks first saw at Android Police, Google Search can now help you tune your guitar from the web browser on your PC and mobile.
Google Search Guitar Tuner
To access Google’s new guitar tuner, all you have to do open Google Search and search ‘Google tuner’. Keep in mind that you should search for ‘Google tuner’ and not ‘Guitar tuner’. Or you can use this direct link to access Google’s chromatic tool tuner.
After you open the search result, you should press the mic icon to start tuning. You will need to grant the browser microphone permission for the feature to work as intended.
After pressing the mic icon, you can start the tuning process as you normally would. There are visual indicators that indicate whether you should tune up or down when playing individual strings, as you can see in the image below:
I tried the feature on OnePlus 7T and found it every time I pulled the wire. However, the guitar seems to be the only supporting instrument as it did not work reliably to tune a ukulele. Moreover, it goes without saying that your experience will change based on the quality of your phone or computer microphone.
