Saavn is a music streaming app that specializes in Hindi and traditional music from the Indian subcontinent. From Rdio to Spotify to Pandora there's no lack of music streaming apps on the market, but most of these programs take a kitchen sink approach to their licensing. That means that certain genres of music can get drowned out from the crowd. In the search to have as much music as possible, these comprehensive streaming services often cast a wide net while still sacrificing regionally and ethnically specific music for the sake of commercial appeal. If you're a fan of Hindi music, the only place to go to get the sound you need without the unnecessary noise is Saavn. It's one of the premier specialized streaming services around, and it offers an impressive library to draw from.

Just because Saavn offers specialized music doesn't mean that they've behind the curve when it comes to the quality of their performance. Saavn is head to head with Apple Music in terms of bitrate, offering an impressive 320 kilobytes per second, but they offer apps that you can find in both the App Store and the Play Store, so you can make the most of this service regardless of the mobile device you use. While you can't purchase music directly, you do have the option to listen to the songs that interest you even when you're offline, so you don't have to worry about losing access to your musical library even when you move out of an area that offers WiFi service.

Unlike those more popular services, Saavn is more narrow in its content choices. They focus on Indian audiences, and their library understandably focuses on Bollywood hits. But the well here is deep. They pull from both classic films and the newest releases, and you can expect to find a diverse array of content even if it doesn't include Top 40 hits from the west. Saavn has also worked out deals with publishers, so they're often the first streaming service to get access to new music. These exclusives provide them a significant leg up on other Indian-based music streaming services. While international music isn't the specialization of Saavn, there are a number of hits from around the world you'll find on the service. It probably won't replace Spotify in terms of sheer content, but it can hold its own if you're a fan of Desi music simply looking for a little bit of the popular western hits on the side.

While there are a handful of comparative services on the market, Saavn wins in terms of interface. The clean layout allows you to find everything you're looking for easily, and the search functionality is unparalleled. They even offer lyrics directly through their app so you can sing along in the shower or on your commute.

Pros:

  • One of the best streaming apps for Indian music
  • A highly polished interface that can hold its own with providers more popularly known in the west

Cons:

  • Narrow selection of content when compared to other music streaming services
