Google Tuner - Guitar tuning via US version of the search engine

The Google search engine has a new, practical function for use in the web browser. In addition to calculators, color pickers and the like, you can now use the “Google Tuner”. As a digital tuner, this helps to tune the strings of the guitar. The Google Tool not only joins a range of other practical search engine web applications, it also probably makes a number of apps superfluous on mobile devices. If you are connected to a WLAN or use mobile data, you can save the storage space for guitar tuner apps and simply use Google Tuner - of course, both must be able to access the microphone.

The Google Tuner is a digital tuner for the guitar that you can use directly in the web browser without downloading. You can find out how to do this in this guide.

Tuning guitar with Google: You have to pay attention to that

Currently, in October 2021, you still have to set the United States (USA) as the search region to use the guitar tuning function. On the Google home page this is done on the computer at the bottom right via Settings -> Search Settings -> Set Region Settings to "United States". Then you go back to the start page and enter there Google tuner in the search bar. Start the search and the tuner tool will be displayed - even in German. To be able to use it, you have to allow Google (one-time) access to the microphone of the device you are using.

Google Tuner works with computers, smartphones, tablets and Co.

Regardless of whether you are using an iMac, MacBook, iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad: If your device has an Internet connection and a microphone, the “Google Tuner” function in the web browser should work. At home, in the rehearsal room, on the go, by the campfire and anywhere else you can tune the guitar without an additional tuner or a special app. What do you think of the new offer in the search engine? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic and also like to show which app you can recommend for offline use! Because the Internet and thus Google search are not always available.

      Hello Beatrix,

      I think you didn't take into account the whole world and all the people on it.

      Best regards
      John
