How To Show Real-Time Audio Visualization of Audio Source In New Tab Page of Chrome?
This extension is very simple and the best part is that there are no settings. You can go to its homepage and then install it on your Chrome browser.
After installation, when you open a new tab page, it will ask permission to Use your microphone. You can grant permission using the Allow button.
After that, this extension will start working and will show Spectrum Analyzer type audio visualization for the current audio source. You can change the audio visualization type using the drop down menu available on the bottom right corner of new tab page. Here you will see that Oscilloscope, Spectrum Analyzer, and Circular visualization types are available. For me, Circular audio type didn’t work, but you should try all the three types.
Whenever there is some noise or audio, the new tab page will show audio visualization for that audio.
When you will change the audio source, then a pop-up window will open automatically prompting you to select the type of audio source. This will help this extension work correctly for the connected audio device and show audio visualizations.
