MusicBrainz for Android is a mobile app for viewing MusicBrainz data on the Android platform. It provides the following functionality:

  • View release information by scanning a barcode
  • Search for information about artists and releases
  • Submit tags, ratings and barcodes
  • Add and remove releases from collections
  • Donate to the MetaBrainz Foundation via PayPal


The app is available to download through Google Play. It was first published on 1st August 2011.


If you think you have found a bug, please report it on the issue tracker. The app is still developed and some new features are planned. You can suggest and vote for new features in the same location.


Android app development has been led by Jamie McDonald. It began as a Google Summer of Code project in 2010. The app communicates with MusicBrainz servers through the XML Web Service/Version 2.

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

git clone git://
