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 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 on Google Play. It was first published on 1 August 2011.


The app is not being actively developed, but efforts to revitalize the app are planned. If you are interested in developing the app, you can join in the discussion at our forum. 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 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://

If you are interested in providing development assistance, contact us by posting on the developers mailing list, join the #metabrainz IRC channel on or simply fork the project and make pull requests on GitHub.
