We’ve written a lot about Indian streaming services like Saavn, Gaana and Dhingana over the last couple of years, but rivals from other parts of the world are eyeing the market too. Rdio, for example, which snapped up Dhingana when the latter ran into problems. Now Australian service Guvera is launching in India for iOS and Android devices, according to Billboard. It’s part of aggressive global expansion this year for Guvera, having signed a deal with 7digital to power its service in August (Bulletin, 15-Aug-14). In India, Guvera will be available in free and ad-funded form, as well as a premium “Platinum” service for Rs 199 a month ($3.24). “We are both proud and excited to be the first-of-its-kind international music streaming offering to enter India,” said founder Claes Loberg. Rdio may have something to say about that, we suspect.
