We say that any instrument, but naturally, it should have a microphone in order to pick up on the sound of your guitar plucking strings. When the string is played, Google has a meter that shows you whether you need to tune up or down, and lets you know when the correct note has been reached.


User feedback indicates that the system works well enough, at least for basic tuning requirements. Note, however, that the quality of the mic put will obviously affect any results, so don’t expect much from an old laptop with a crappy little microphone, for example, or a low-budget phone.
