You could already use Google’s search engine for this play Pac-Man, translate manuscript of the people, i do the reel forward. Now it looks like you can use it to tweak your instruments as well. Android police was first noticed a new guitar tuning feature built into Google Search, which allows users to drag the tool just by typing “google tuner” into search bar.
This isn’t the first time the company has tried to help people set up – in fact, Google Assistant offers a similar feature from 2017. But considering how ubiquitous Google search has become, and as easy as it is just, well, to search for an expression, this will open up this feature to almost anyone who has a browser on any device and a working microphone.
This is also a pretty random time on Google’s part, given how playing the guitar has become a popular pastime during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to research published earlier this week in co-authorship of the Fender people, approximately 16 million people have picked up the instrument in the past year.
And while I’m not one of them, I am did spin Google’s new tool, humming into my laptop’s microphone. And yes, it’s really that simple: all you have to do is turn on the microphone, and the search engine will help you tell if you need to adjust your instrument (or voice) up or down. Well, hey, it might as well be useful for warming up your voice!
Of course, how much this tool works for you depends on the microphone you use. Android police reported using some devices like Galaxy Z Fold 3 which would not pick up sounds unless they were loud and would play directly into the phone. I personally found on my device (MacBook Air) that I managed to achieve good mileage from the tool even when I was sitting a few feet away from the microphone. In any case, this is a great tool that will surely make it easier for people to get upset.
