Saavn has launched its music streaming app for Windows 10. Launched last month, millions of Windows users have already upgraded to Microsoft’s new OS. With Saavn for Windows, music fiends will now have access to the streaming service with more than 10 million tracks across 11 languages.
Saavn for Windows will be launching as a Universal Windows app with an adaptable layout for desktop and tablet. The company also plans to launch the mobile app when Windows 10 for mobile is launched later this year. Music listeners on Windows will be able to access Saavn’s core products and features such as phonetic search, dynamic bit-rate streaming, and more.
“With more than a billion Windows PCs running today, Windows leads the market for desktop operating systems. Their products are widely used and loved in India. Music fans have been very eager to stream Saavn on Windows, so we are absolutely thrilled to welcome the fast-growing Windows user base to the Saavn family today,” Mahesh Narayanan, Global Chief Operating Officer for Saavn, said.
Some additional features will be launched in the coming months, including Saavn Social features (Tag, Chat, Follow and Share), Saavn Radio, and Saavn Pro, for online and offline listening.
“We see Windows 10 as a first step to an era of more personal computing. Windows 10 will open new doors to consumers and developers with one platform, one store and a growing catalog of Universal Windows Apps. With the free upgrade of Windows 10, we expect rapid adoption of hundreds of millions of consumers to spark a re-energized ecosystem. We are excited to announce the launch of Saavn for Windows 10 and are confident that our users will love the comprehensive music catalogue that this app offers,” Harish Vaidyanathan, Director – ISV Business, Microsoft Corporation India Pvt. Ltd., said.
Along with an adaptive layout, the Saavn app has also been optimised for the Windows dynamic landing page and users will be able to pin it on to their Start screen. The app also supports Windows live tile functionality.
