Chord AI uses recent advances in AI to give you the chords of any song automatically and reliably. You won't need anymore to look for the chords of a song on the web. Chord AI listens to the music played from your device or around you and shows you the chords instantly.

Chord AI can recognize 300 distinct chords, including:
- major and minors
- aug, dim, half-diminished, dim7
- 6ths, 7ths, 9ths, add9, 11th, 13th
- suspended (sus2, sus4)
- 7th with suspension (7sus2, 7sus4)

Chord AI even works offline. You don't need to have an internet connection (unless you want to play a song from YouTube or a streaming service).

How does Chord AI work? Chord AI can find the chords of a song in two ways:
1) Through your device microphone. Any song playing around you, or played by your device, is analysed through your device microphone and the chords of the song are shown in real time. You can go back in time and replay the song together with the chords displayed on a timeline.
2) For audio files that you have on your device or iCloud, Chord AI will process the file in a few seconds to give you all the chords of the song at once

Regarding the 17+ age restriction: This is simply enforced by Apple for any application which lets you browse YouTube videos freely.

Absolutely amazing app!

This app is super helpful. I just started learning guitar and this app has been helping me learn chords and and playing songs I enjoy. The only thing I would say, which is why I'm giving 3 stars, is when I'm recording a long song and my brightness is all the way up I get image burn from the tiny scrolling bars at the top. This happened once and I was so scared it broke my phone forever. I ended up having to use one of those image burn videos to get rid of it. I am on the iPhone XR if that helps. Not sure what kind of screen it has. It could really ruin someones phone if used too much. So now I just make sure to turn my brightness down and I haven't had a problem since. Other than that, its an amazing app! Always accurate and has helped me tremendously.

Simple to use and remarkably accurate!

I play in a band at work and we’ve started using the app to find the chords from songs we’d like to play from everyone’s playlists. The tool is simple to use and has proved to be remarkably accurate! This is much easier than having to browse through multiple websites that don’t always have the right version of a song you’d like to play... Well done with this one!

Chord accuracy is pretty good, support even better.

Update. The support with this app is amazing. Issue resolved.

Every time I play back a song from my library, the output defaults to iPhone speaker, even if headphones are plugged in or Bluetooth’d in. I am using it with a practice module with my guitar, so it is a pain to re plug in the headphones after playback begins every time. If this issue is resolved, this app is awesome...
