Following the launch of Spotify and YouTube Music in India, the competition in the online music streaming services is heating up. As the two companies entered India, they announced free services to entice users and paid services at competitive prices.  JioSaavn and Gaana recently discounted yearly subscription prices and now, Apple has quietly slashed the pricing of its music streaming service. Apple Music is now available for Rs 99 per month per individual, down from the previous pricing of Rs 120/month. 

The company has also lowered the pricing of its music streaming service for both student and family subscription plans. They are now priced at Rs 49 and Rs 149 respectively, down from Rs 60 and Rs 190 respectively. Those who subscribe to Apple Music on a yearly basis will need to pay Rs 999, down from the previous price of Rs 1,200. As mentioned above, the price refresh comes after Spotify and YouTube Music entered the online music streaming space in India. Spotify’s monthly subscription costs Rs 119, while YouTube Music has priced its monthly subscription even lower at Rs 99.

Recently JioSaavn and Gaana also lowered the price of their annual subscription plans. JioSaavn and Gaana users can now get yearly subscription to the services for Rs 299. Before the price cut, JioSaavn’s annual subscription was priced at Rs 999, while the same for Gaana costed Rs 1,098. Additionally, Gaana also has a discounted annual plan for students, which is priced at Rs 149. Do note that all of the music streaming services mentioned here, except Apple, are free to use. Purchasing a subscription enables ad-free streaming, offline downloads and more premium services.

YouTube Music and Spotify offer a month of free trial to their service and the former lets you stream YouTube original content for three months for free as well. However one won’t get background play during the trial period without paying for the service.
