We’re Making Some Changes…


Dear Saavn Family,

We’re making some changes and want you to be the first to know.

We started Saavn 7 years ago with a simple goal in mind: Delight the world with music.

Thanks to you and all your support, Saavn has grown to a proud team of 190 people around the globe. We continue to dedicate our lives to delivering you the best experience on the planet for Indian music. We now have over 20 Million users in all parts of the world who spend hours daily on Saavn. We hear everyday how the product has changed your lives by bringing music in to your homes, cars, workouts, weddings, and of course, parties!

We are here because of you and we are immensely thankful. As we grow, we must also evolve our business so the company can continue to innovate and build for the long term.

Many of you are already paid Saavn subscribers and for you, nothing changes. We will continue to honor your original pricing and we thank you for being such power listeners.

We will be transitioning to a paid model in many countries *, and this will be rolling out gradually over the next few months. This will enable us to invest in even more music content, original programming, and artists.

Your time is valuable and we want to make sure we continue to earn your trust. As it rolls out, we will be offering a 30 day free trial so you can enjoy the full experience of everything on the Saavn platform including all your favorite Indian music, groundbreaking original shows, and Artists-in-Residence who are making music just for you. After your trial, Saavn will be $4.99/month (or equivalent pricing within your market) with No Ads, Offline Play, and High Fidelity Audio.

You can cancel at anytime and we’ll make it easy. We want you to be happy and delighted with Saavn. In fact, nothing matters more to us.

As a team, we will continue to work tirelessly to deliver you the best experience possible. We thank you for your continued support and hope you keep listening and enjoying Saavn as you have for many years.

We’re honored that you trust us to be your home for music everyday.

Much love from all of us at Saavn.
