I recently started using Saavn for streaming bollywood music on my Andriod phone. Saavn is an acronym for “South Asian Audio Visual Network.” The service is available at Saavn.com, Saavn Music for iPhone and Saavn Music for Android.
Prior to using Saavn, I would stream music from variety of sources e.g. YouTube, local music sites etc. With over 3 million records, Saavn is now my one-stop for all South Asian music. The service is free but serves Ads. Ads are minimally intrusive which is what contributes to great listening experience.
Saavn app on my smartphone does a good job of pushing out notifications when new tracks or albums are available even when the app is not running. It also pushes out notifications for special playlists suited for different occasions.
Saavn has partnered with Facebook and is on the Open Graph platform. This deep integration with Facebook allows users to stream music using their Facebook login and to enjoy their favorite music from Facebook, for a seamless social listening experience. This social experience helps company raise awareness about their service.
