We had previously written about the imminent launch of Pro version of the Asian music streaming service Saavn. The music streaming company has finally made available its paid music service, Saavn Pro, for iOS devices through an update of the Saavn app to its second version.
As the tagline of the app says, “Wave goodbye to ads and lost signals,” Saavn Pro is a subscription-based, ad free, service that enables users to save their songs and listen to them offline.
The Pro service allows you to add up to 5 devices per account. You can also choose whether to use WiFi or your mobile data connection to save your music for offline listening. The songs are also encoded at 320Kbps making it the best listening experience without any loss of quality.
The new app, comes with a new and improved user interface, a nice improvement over its predecessor. The music management system also has been overhauled making it easy to manage your music and playlists. Users can also share their music preference with their friends using the app or other Saavn users.
In the Pro version all you have to do in order to save the music for offline listening is to click on the cloud icon next to the track name. Once the song is cached for offline mode , the cloud icon turns green with a tick. Now all you have to do when in offline mode is choose the tracks you have saved for offline listening and listen to the track play glitch free without any buffering.
In the playlist view you also have an option to download all the songs in the playlist by simply clicking on the cloud icon on top. You are also given option to share your playlist via social media accounts, e-mail or SMS.
To use the Pro service, all you need to do is, download the Saavn app and then activate the Pro feature from the settings menu. Initially you can use the Pro version of the app on a 30-day trial basis by signing in through your facebook account or e-mail. Once the trial period is over you can continue to use the service by paying a subscription of Rs.220/month, which can be done through an in-app purchase.
You can get the app here. Give Saavn Pro a spin and tell us what you think.
