Music APIs – The List of 2016

As you may have noticed ACRCloud doesn’t provide some of music metadata or copyrighted contents such as album covers, artist images, lyrics etc in its recognition/monitoring results, but the value-added service – 3rd Party ID Integration can be treated as a hub to help you to drill down more data with other music APIs or developer programs.

I put a list here of the most updated music APIs regardless of whether we have integrated with our service, we hope these APIs can be useful for your projects. Let me know if there are any gaps.
