Press Release August 27, 2018

Learning to play music with the aid of chord recognition software is no longer a pipe dream. For years, Chordify has used machine learning for automatically generating the chords of any song. With the release of their new app for Android, the music e-learning service is focussing their attention on the Asian market. In the meantime, the new Chordify app has already been downloaded more than 250,000 times.

Chordifying India    

The new Android version of the music e-learning service enables users in growth markets, such as India, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. By launching the Android app version 2.0, the most important premium features will become available on millions of devices worldwide.

What’s new?

Premium features that are now available in the Android app 2.0 are, among others: the metronome tool, that recognizes the tempo and time signature of the song; and the chord playback mode, that lets you hear what a chord should sound like. Furthermore, adjusting the difficulty level is really easy with the transpose feature or the capo tool.

To make practicing music easier you can also increase or decrease the tempo of a song. And the loop function lets you pick out a particular piece to repeat. Finally, you can use the  export feature to make the chords available as a pdf file, so you’re not constantly dependent on a wifi connection.

And this is only the beginning. In the future, there will be a lot more handy premium features, like an expansion of the popular offline mode.
