Contents

Saavn was founded in 2006 as BODVOD Network and initially distributed Bollywood content in North America in a B2B offering. Saavn later shifted its core focus to become a music destination for fans of Bollywood and other Indic music in 2009, re-launching its flagship product, Saavn.com, to become a B2C product. As of today, Saavn is one of the largest distributors of Bollywood and other Indian entertainment in the world.[citation needed]

On March 23, 2018, Reliance Industries Ltd acquired a majority stake in Saavn. Reliance executed definitive agreements for combination of Saavn with its digital music service, JioMusic. The combined entity is valued at over US$1 billion.

Saavn’s products are Saavn Pro, its music service that offers offline listening without advertisements, and its mobile apps, Saavn for iOS and Saavn for Android.

Saavn also integrated a social networking feature with its music streaming service in April 2015. Saavn Social allows users to follow the profiles and playlists of their friends as well as celebrities. Users can share any song, album or playlist with their friends and chat about music in real time.

Revenue model

Saavn’s business model is based on digital advertising services (offers service with advertisements) and a subscription-based business model (Saavn Pro, offers ad-free and offline streaming).

Partnerships

This section reads like a press release or a news article.(March 2021)

Amazon

Saavn was one of the first music streaming services in India to be made available on Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, which shipped nationwide in October 2017.

Shazam

In 2013, Shazam, a media engagement company, entered into an exclusive partnership with Saavn. As a part of this, Saavn’s music library was incorporated in Shazam’s music database. Saavn aims to provide its users with an enhanced listening experience with Shazam’s music engagement tools especially in popular genres like bhangra, devotional, ghazals, Carnatic, Indipop and regional language music like Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, and Bhojpuri.

Twitter

Saavn launched its radio model in 2013 and later partnered with Twitter to crowd-source song requests via the custom handle @SaavnRadio.

Apps for iOS, Android and Windows 10

In 2010, Saavn introduced its first mobile app - Saavn Music for Android. This was followed up with Saavn Music for iPhone. Saavn for iOS has received 9,000+ ratings with an average rating of 4.5 Stars. In mid-2011, Saavn added its latest app, Saavn Music for Chrome, to the Chrome Web Store and later on Microsoft Store running Windows 10.

Facebook

Saavn was selected in December, 2011 to be Facebook’s first global partner and Indian partner on the Open Graph platform. This integration with Facebook allows users to stream any of Saavn’s millions of tracks using their Facebook logins and to listen to music from Facebook. In the first three days of launch, Open Graph doubled the total number of visitors to Saavn.com, and increased the number of visitors from Facebook to Saavn by 15 times. Nearly half of Saavn’s user base uses Facebook Connect.

Sony Music

Saavn partnered with Sony Music to acquire Sony’s entire database of music catalog in 2012.

Other partners

Saavn has 900+ label partnerships including Universal, Sony Music, T-Series, Tips, YRF, Saregama, Eros and Warner Music. Saavn’s brand partners include global names like AT&T, Bose, Lays, General Motors, Nokia, Samsung, and Western Union.

Creative collaborator

Saavn teamed up with popular Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor in 2014. He joined Saavn to collaborate on consumer marketing ideas and business development. The actor was reportedly interested in working at a more business-oriented level at Saavn. He has expressed his desire to help "guide the brand, influence programming, connect with the next generation of music listeners and ultimately help build the best music product in India and potentially the world." The partnership led to a number of ad campaigns that were launched in India and select international networks and generated more than 7 million combined YouTube views. Ranbir Kapoor is also co-owner / part-owner of Saavn.

Corporate social responsibility

In February 2015, Saavn partnered with philanthropy non-profit Akshaya Patra Foundation for the launch of #MusicForMeals. For every hour of music streamed on Saavn, the company helps provide mid-day meals to school-going children through Akshaya Patra's network of schools.

Saavn also works with the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), a not-for-profit industry body that represents the interests of mobile and online value added services in India. In May 2015, Saavn co-founder and president Vinodh Bhat was named as vice-chairman of IAMAI.

Switch to subscription-only service

Beginning November 2016, Saavn started moving to a paid-only model (except India), initially offering listening for free for 30 days and after that a monthly subscription fee of $4.99.
