Gracenote is a music and video metadata company. Gracenote provides metadata for music and videos for players in cars, mobile, web, and other player devices. Metadata includes cover art, photos, recommendations, genres, and offers voice recognition services.
The Gracenote API allows developers to access and integrate the data and functionality of Gracenote with other applications and to create new applications. Some example API methods include searching music, retrieving associated data and metadata, and retrieving tracks.
Gracenote has announced an internet music recommendation API: Gracenote Rhythm. A new API Documentation Workshop will be held in Silicon Valley next month. Plus, Sony provides SmartWatch developers some API advice and 6 new APIs.
