How to change song info on android? (Step-by-step)


We generally store a large collection of songs on our android phone, and one day we would have surely thought of editing the information on the set of songs that we listen to very often. Have you ever wondered how to change song info on android and then stopped it halfway since you were clueless? Well, this is where you can use an app to update the tags of the song.

Once we customize it, the tags will display on the media player and it becomes easier to use. Our android phones don’t support any default app to customize song information. So, you need to be cautious about the app you use! Let’s get started.

How do I edit the metadata of a song? 

To change the information in any song, the first step is to edit the metadata of the song.

Metadata is a set of data, which explains the song and is mainly used for identifying the song. For example, metadata will be explaining the title of the song, singer, track length, or what genre does the song falls under. It also helps to register a song and get it licensed.

As we have seen metadata plays a vital role in any song, we can also edit and change the data in the metadata of a song. Editing metadata is mainly done to keep all the songs well organized. In some cases, removing metadata of a song will make sense as the data of the song will be completely irrelevant and misleading.

You need an app to edit the metadata as the Android platform doesn’t have an inbuilt app to do it. This is probably the best solution to your question on how to change song info on android.
