Times Internet group has launched mobile apps for its Gaana music streaming service. The app is now available for Android, iOS, BlackBerry and J2ME devices.
The service is free for users. The app features one-click abilities to favorite a song or share a playlist, via Facebook, Twitter, or email and curated playlists from radio channels.
Other features include:
- Access to over 1 million songs, including Bollywood, Hollywood, Tamil, Telegu, and regional music
- Social listening - see what your friends are listening to
- My zone: an ability to see your history, your favourite songs, playlists, albums and artists across your computer or mobile phone (automatically synced in real-time across all devices)
- Radio mode: make your own radio station automatically, based on any song you play, using our proprietary recommendation algorithm
The service competes with the likes of Saavn, Dhingana, MusicIndiaOnline and Raaga. According to Comscore (Nov 2012) figures quoted by Gaana.com, the music streaming service has nearly 3 million visitors per month, who spend nearly 2.5x more time per visit than visitors of other music sites in India.
“We are so proud of the Gaana experience on mobile. Indian consumers love their music, and we've built a product that matches their expectations for excellence across every screen that matters to them. Gaana on mobile is feature-rich and intuitive to use, and we intend to use this as a base to build even more functionality and offerings for our users, across all platforms,” says Satyan Gajwani, CEO, Times Internet.
