After releasing its revamped 3.0 app for iOS in April 2014, Saavn has now announced the availability of its new music streaming app for Android. The new app brings easy access to songs in 11 languages and direct entry to Saavn Radio from a rich, tiled homescreen. The update also includes full-screen album art in the Saavn player. This app has been developed in collaboration with Google’s Android teams. The new Saavn app for Android is also the company’s first to provide full Android tablet support.
Speaking about the new product, Anurag Gupta, CTO and Co-founder of Saavn, said “India is an Android-driven market, and 70% of Saavn’s listeners in India are on Android. We’re excited to deliver the best possible user experience to the majority of our listener base with this new app. It’s been carefully crafted to optimize the multiple screen experience, and to work seamlessly across a wide range of Android versions and hardware configurations.”
