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.


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 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.
