Tune Your Guitar In Google Search, isn’t it cool?
Google has added a new feature that allows users to tune their stringed instruments with ease. The internet giant has added an instrument tuner to its search engine to let you tune a guitar using your device’s microphone.
The new inbuilt tuner works like any other guitar tuning app available on different app stores. The feature is now live, and users need an updated browser and a phone or a computer with microphone access to try it. You can access the tuner by simply typing “Google tuner” in the Google Search bar.
Android Police first spotted the rollout of the latest feature. The report says that Google unveiled the instrument tuner feature on the search platform on October 7. The interface of the chromatic tuner is familiar. It works like any other popular instrument tuning app on Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store — much like a physical tuner. For example, when the user plays a string on their guitar, the tuner will quickly catch the note and suggest playing the message.
Tune Your Guitar In Google Search
Have you ever been jamming away and noticed that your guitar is a little bit out of tune, but you don’t have a tuner handy, and you need to back to jamming as quickly as possible? Fortunately, Google now has you back.
Initially discovered earlier this week by Android Police, Google has added a new instrument tuner to Google searches. Now, whenever you search the term “Google tuner” on your PC, Android, or iOS device, you’ll be greeted with a tuner that uses your device’s microphone to make sure all of your notes sound right.
This isn’t Google’s first venture into instrument tuning, however. Google Assistant could tune instruments with the “tune my instrument” command for a while now, but this new addition should make the feature more accessible to everybody.
No matter what device you are using, as long as you have a microphone, you will be able to take advantage of the new Google tuner. But, of course, depending on what hardware you are using, you may experience different results. For example, Jon Porter of The Verge noted that the tuner worked well for his iPhone 12, but a cheaper Android device had trouble picking up the instrument’s notes.
This is a super cool new feature. While it most likely won’t replace any dedicated instrument tuners since it relies so much on other hardware, I could see the part being used in a pinch. If you don’t have a tuner handy, it’d be cool to do a quick Google search to get your guitar sounding right again.
How to use this feature?
To use the feature, you need to provide Google the permission to use your device’s microphone. The output from the instrument tuner will depend on the quality of the microphone of your mobile phone or computer but should generally work fine with most devices.
Google has introduced several features for its platforms lately. Last month, the search giant released a Chrome 94 stable update with new security features, functionality, and bug fixes for Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows operating systems. In addition, the company recently announced eco-friendly routing, lite navigation for cyclists, and bike and scooter share information features on Google Maps to the users’ reduce carbon footprint.
Google has also added new search filters on Gmail for Android. The new feature allows users to quickly and easily filter email search results on their mobile devices. The search filters should appear below the search box on the Gmail app. The filter can be a name or a specific timeframe. Additionally, Google has released new settings to the Google app on Android that lets users choose if they want personalized search results.
