DistroKid, the world’s largest distributor of independent music, unveiled today its first-ever mobile app for Android. Earlier this year the company launched its first mobile app for iOS which to date has been downloaded more that half a million times. Like its iOS predecessor, the new Android app puts DistroKid’s powerful suite of tools directly in the hands of artists, enabling them to upload new releases, receive instant payment alerts, access stats from Apple and Spotify, edit metadata, and more–right from their phones.

“DistroKid’s mobile app for iOS has been hugely popular,” said Matthew Ogle, Chief Product Officer at DistroKid. “We’re so excited to give millions of Android users around the world access to the same streamlined experience, so they can distribute and manage their music directly from their mobile device.”
Over the last year, DistroKid introduced other innovations to its platform. Earlier this year, the company unveiled Mixea, an AI-powered intelligent mastering tool that helps artists instantly make their music “radio ready” by optimizing bass, compression, stereo enhancement, EQ, limiting & loudness.
Late last year, the company launched DistroVid, a service which enables users to upload music videos to Apple Music, Tidal and Vevo. DistroKid was the first music distributor to offer this kind of deal to artists – unlimited full length music video uploads for one low price.
These were just the latest in a suite of services developed by DistroKid to help artists work faster & become more prolific. These innovations build upon DistroKid’s basic offering – unlimited music distribution – plus more than 20 free tools that help artists have fun, make music & get heard.
In September DistroKid acquired Bandzoogle, whose powerful tools enable artists to easily create websites and sell their music directly to their fans.
As always, DistroKid pays artists 100% of their earnings.
