How to use a metronome on Google’s homepage

  1. Ask Google for a metronome
  2. Adjust the BPM

1. Ask Google for a metronome

As with most Google searches, you can either first head to Google’s website or make sure your web browser’s URL bar is set to use the Google search engine. Next, type in the term ‘Metronome.’ You should now have taken to search results for metronome websites with Google’s own built-in tool located at the top of the page.

If you need help, you can jump directly to Google’s metronome by clicking on this link.

2. Adjust the BPM

As you can see from the image below, you can manually adjust the BPM of Google’s metronome. To do this, just drag the indicator dot left or right across the on-screen scale. If you need to be more precise, you can click or tap on the + and – icons.

When you have it set to your desires BPM, just select the play button and the beat will be played through your device’s speakers. Google’s metronome allows you to set a rhythm between 40 BPM and 218 BPM.

Note: As with other features found on Google’s homepage, this functionality might not be available for everyone in select countries outside of the US. For example, we know the search engine’s speed test feature didn’t work in countries such as Nicaragua, Portugal, and more.
