Indian media firm Times Internet has launched Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Java mobile apps for its Gaana streaming music service. The apps promise a catalogue of 1m Indian and Western tracks, a personal radio mode, curated playlists from Indian tastemakers, and social features. “Indian consumers love their music, and we’ve built a product that matches their expectations for excellence across every screen that matters to them,” says Times Internet CEO Satyan Gajwani in a statement. The company also cites comScore stats showing nearly 3m monthly visitors to Gaana, which is up against the likes of Saavn and Dhingana in its home country – both of which have had apps for some time now. As with those rivals, Gaana is hoping to attract users from around the world, with the app free and ad-supported for now, with plans to offer “premium functionalities” in a future premium version.
