Tuning your guitar is now easier than ever thanks to the features offered by smartphones, with a decent tuning app, or with Google Assistant. Google has confirmed that this will make the process easier for users. The company launches a chromatic tuner right in Search.
According to the report Android PoliceGoogle has already begun rolling out this new search feature, which can be accessed on almost any device. Previously, users could tune their guitar using the Google Assistant feature, which required a device capable of accessing a voice assistant.
In comparison, the new feature can be used simply by performing a search query on a mobile device or computer. Users can just type; “Google tuner” so that it appears right at the top of the results page.
It is important to note that the device you are using must have a working microphone in order to hear your instrument. You will also need to grant access to the tuner function.
The source cited says that the effectiveness of the feature depends on the microphone of the device you are using. While some devices may require you to play loudly or very close to it, smartphones are expected to perform better than computers when using this feature.
The tuner will inform users if their instrument is tuned or needs to be tuned using a visual indicator. Google also offers other music-related features, including a Buzz For Search feature that can help you identify songs stuck in your head.
