Google search now has a chromatic tuner | Digital Trends Spanish

Google just added a new feature to its search engine: a chromatic tuner, with which you can tune an instrument directly from the results page on basically any device.

The system works in desktop and mobile browsers -although for some reason, it doesn’t appear in Firefox on mobiles- and to find it you just have to type “Google tuner” in the search field. Obviously, this requires access to the device’s microphone, and that is where there may be some discrepancy in the results.

In my case, I tested it on a desktop browser with a USB microphone and a Poco X3 phone and it worked without a hitch on both. However, it is possible that on some phones with not so good microphones the results may vary a bit.

An interesting detail is that, because it is a chromatic tuner, it is sensitive to different tones and is not predetermined to a specific tuning as some instruments or applications have.

Perhaps the best thing about this Google search tuner is that it becomes the cleanest way to tune an instrument on a mobile phone. Because yes, it is true that there are a lot of applications that do the same, but many of the free ones come full of ads or some even have pay walls for certain tunings.

Therefore, from now on it may be a good idea to have the Google tuner saved in a bookmark and ready to be used in an emergency, since the interface is very simple and clear for the task at hand: tuning an instrument.
