#LetsPlay – Introducing Saavn Social!

We’re excited to announce the launch of something game-changing…Saavn Social is here! With today’s update of the Saavn app (available free now in the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store, or at saavn.com/download), you can tag friends, follow artists, and – yes! – even music chat on Saavn. We’re making music social, starting today!

Little, musical notes!

If music is the soundtrack of our lives, the new Social features we’ve added today let you create music moments with your friends, family, and favorite artists. Think of these as “music snapshots” – so you can tag people in music, the same way you might tag them in a photo, taking music sharing to a new, real-time, conversational level. Try tagging one or more of your friends on Saavn in a song or a playlist, and watch the comments unfold!

With today’s update (Android 3.4, iOS 3.6), if you’re a Saavn listener who logs in via Facebook, you can:

  • See a list of your Facebook friends who are also on Saavn
  • Follow your friends’ profiles, playlists, and listening activity
  • Follow artists, celebrities, and public playlists
  • Receive notifications when artists you follow release new music on Saavn
  • Tag your friends in songs, playlists, and albums
  • Comment on and chat around tags
  • Customize your notification settings, for complete control of the Saavn Social experience!

That’s it from Saavn HQ! Give Social a spin and let us know what you think. #LetsPlay #SaavnSocial
