MusicBrainz for Android is a mobile app for viewing MusicBrainz data on the Android platform. It allows you to:

  • View release information by scanning a barcode
  • Search for information about various MusicBrainz entities
  • View collections
  • Tag audio files like Picard
  • Donate to the MetaBrainz Foundation via PayPal


The app is available to download on Google Play.


Development on the app was initiated again as a GSoC 2019 project. If you are interested in developing the app, you can join in the discussion in #metabrainz IRC channel on freenode. Bug reports can be submitted to the issue tracker.


Android app development was led by Jamie McDonald. It began as a Google Summer of Code project in 2010. The work came to a standstill sometime around 2015. In 2019, the work on the app was initiated again by amCap1712. The app underwent a major overhaul to make it compatible with the current Android ecosystem. The app is under active development since then.

The source code for the app is maintained on GitHub and you can get it with all its history using:

git clone git://

If you are interested in providing development assistance, join the #metabrainz IRC channel on or simply fork the project and make pull requests on GitHub.
