Android Tip: Adding Album Art (Android 4.1.1)

After properly changing the details of my mp3 files and moving them to my phone, I had yet to add Album Art.
A little bit of digging got me this wonderful app named Album Art Grabber. It’s a free App available in the Google Play store that will find all audio files found on your device, and give you the option to browse the web for album art for each file selected. You can also overwrite the audio files’ album art by choosing an image file downloaded onto your device itself.

So here’s a little step by step by step guide on how to use Album Art Grabber and make sure that your album art will appear correctly in the native Google Play Music application (Android 4.1.1).

  1. Open Album Art Grabber (Fig. 1)
  2. Choose the album, and select where you want to look for your album art (Fig. 2)
  3. Browse by Artist name or browse by Album name (Fig. 3a and Fig. 3b)
  4. Select and set the album art you want (Fig. 4)
  5. Open the app drawer, drag the Play Music native app to “App Info”
  6. This window should appear (Fig. 5); Force stop app and Clear Data
  7. Open the Play Music application, and rejoice! (Fig. 6)
