Google has just introduced an instrument tuner online that’s right there built into the top of your Google search.
Just type “Google tuner” into the search engine and the guitar tuner with mic will appear at the top of the page. Hit the mic and watch the colourful dial inform you whether you’re in tune or not. No more searching for a free way to tune guitar online only to find you need to download an app, with in-app purchases.
The free instrument tuner works on any device – computer or mobile – and is pretty accurate for a free chromatic tuner. Mobile devices do seem to pick up the sound of the instrument more accurately though, presumably because you can get the microphone closer to your guitar.
The Google tuner joins other nifty free tools, including the Metronome, Flip a coin and Colour picker, as well as the Google Hum to Search feature in the app.
