Press release - Chordify Android app

Press release, Groningen, The Netherlands, 27 February 2018 

Chordify, one of the world’s most prominent online music resources for chords, recently launched a beta version for Android. Just like the iOS version, the app helps users to practice their favorite songs on piano, guitar and ukulele.

Using an advanced algorithm, the Chordify app automatically recognizes the chords of any song and aligns them to the music in an easy-to-use player. With the Android app, users can search songs and request the chords from the entire YouTube catalogue and the collection of 6 million songs that have already been chordified. (In the long run Android versions will also support SoundCloud and Deezer).

Easy and intuitive learning on your phone 

"The vast majority of people wanting to learn to play a musical instrument quit in their first year", chief marketing officer and co-founder Gijs Bekenkamp explains. "We want to help people keep on practicing, by making it fun and easy and letting them play their favorite songs."

Chordify has millions of monthly visitors and welcomed its 1,200,000th registered user this month. "Because of the increasing popular demand, we developed an Android app together with app developer Hiro, next to our iOS app and web based app" Bekenkamp continues. "Hiro already had a lot of experience developing media, music and e-learning apps, so they were a perfect fit."

"I am proud of the fact that this has become a true Chordify app. Whether you're using the Android app or the iOS version, it's easy to find your way around." 

Dean Janssen, app developer at Hiro

The app and web version also communicate seamlessly, syncing users’ song libraries and favorites instantly, making them playable on their mobile and desktop. It allows users who might not know how to play certain chords, to play along with interactive chord diagrams for piano, guitar and ukulele. Both the chords and chord diagrams are synced to the beat of a song and switching between them is quick and easy, with the press of a finger.

"If you're a musician, Chordify is the app. From the basement noodling guitarist to the working shredder, this app has you covered. It's accuracy is mind boggling."
