Guitar Pro for Android, now compatible with Guitar Pro 7

Guitar Pro for Android, now compatible with Guitar Pro 7

We’ve updated our Android app. This new version is now compatible with Guitar Pro 7. Let’s take a look at what’s new in Guitar Pro 1.6.0.

You can now:

  • Open Guitar Pro 7 files (.gp format)
  • Export the compositions made on the NotePad into Guitar Pro 7 format
  • Get new icon and color changes in the interface that match the Guitar Pro 7 design


New look for the Guitar Pro 7 app

To visually mark the new compatibility of the mobile app with Guitar Pro 7, the application icon and interface colors have been changed. The Guitar Pro 6 red is replaced by the Guitar Pro 7 blue.

Compatibility with Guitar Pro 7

> Music scores library
You can now hear and read your Guitar Pro 7 files in the app. This application is a complete sheet-music and tablature player that allows you to open the following file formats:

  • Guitar Pro 3 .gp3
  • Guitar Pro 4 .gp4
  • Guitar Pro 5 .gp5
  • Guitar Pro 6 .gpx
  • Guitar Pro 7 .gp
  • PowerTab .ptb

This update also allows reading 9/10 strings tabs and opening password protected files (files locked in Guitar Pro 7 software to prevent opening or editing a music score).

This app is the perfect tool for learning, practicing, and playing your favorite compositions and songs anywhere, anytime. Choose the notation mode for display (tablature, standard notation, or slash), add or hide the fretboard/keyboard, use the metronome and the visual countdown, change the tempo, transpose your piece by half-tones.



> NotePad tool

You can use the NotePad tool to write up a riff idea or a melody. It is now possible with this update to export your composition into .gpx and .gp formats (Guitar Pro 6 and 7) and later carry on with your song in Guitar Pro for Windows or Mac.

The NotePad tool allows you to create a single-track tablature for guitar, bass, banjo, ukulele, and mandolin in your application. Customize the tuning (4- to 8-string instruments), the tempo, the sound (19 sounds available) and find all of the usual musical symbols pertaining to the guitar and to other stringed instruments.

This version also includes some bug fixes and improvements to bring you the very best of the Guitar Pro experience.


How to update your Guitar Pro application

  • Open the Play Store application and tap My Applications and Games.
  • Search for the Guitar Pro application and tap the Update button.

    Despite this post it is still not available on Android? Please get back to me and let me know what’s going on? You guys are my favourite most used program as a guitar teacher but you are starting to fall seriously behind othes (ultimate guitar etc…)

    Can we please get multi-track composition for the mobile app! and perhaps some of other features from the desktop app?

    Have used Guitar Pro 6 a lot in the past, always thought it was good and expected this to be a very stripped down version.
    But I’m struggling to change the tempo on songs that I load at the moment….. any tips ?

  8. Thomas Duflos - August 28, 2018 at 10:11 am

    Hi Andy, if you are using the Guitar Pro App on Android, you just need to click on the metronome shaped button on the right. If you can’t find it, please send a message to our support and the will help you.

    On PC I have been using Guitar Pro for a very long time. I would very much like to download and use the app. Unfortunately, it is required that money is collected through Google. However I will never share my active account information with Google, let alone make any transactions through Google.
