Saavn is popular a music streaming service home to a notable number of paid users in the South Asian region. As such, its newly introduced offline streaming support for Windows 10 will prove to be highly successful.

Saavn, being a common platform for streaming English, Bollywood and regional Indian music in over 200 countries globally, has entertained iOS and Android users for quite some time and gained immense popularity over the past years. Introducing this regional universal music streaming application for Windows users was long overdue by Microsoft as its unavailability was a huge turn-off for them.

Saavn Music and Radio feature an effortlessly sleek user interface along with smooth navigation from one point to another within the application. The updated 3.0 Pro version brought some noteworthy benefits for its user like:

  • offline music listening
  • no ad interruptions
  • 320kbps high-quality downloads

Online streaming is still constrained to a limit of 128kbps which the Saavn team claims will be updated to 320kbps as well in the coming weeks.

Apart from this, a single Saavn Pro account can be accessed on up to five mobile devices including all iOS, Windows and Android users irrespective of where you signed up. You can log in and stream music on Saavn regardless of that limit. Saavn gives users access to a wide range of songs, playlists and radio stations to choose from in languages like Hindi, English, and Indian regional languages like Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam, Bhojpuri, Urdu, Rajasthani, and Odia.

Saavn also brings itself neck-to-neck with the only other local music streaming platform available to users in the region, Gaana — that is, of course, after the shutdown of MixRadio.

While Gaana still receives Windows 10 support, it hasn’t yet introduced an update for devices running a Windows 8.x OS. But then again, there is the Windows 10 UWP for Gaana that has been out now for several months. Gaana has had am offline listening feature for quite some time but apart from that exhibits a complicated and dated UI.

You can sign-up for Saavn Pro by purchasing a code from any online retailer or carry your subscription from Android/iOS devices, but there are no in-app purchases available at the moment.
