We’re excited that music streaming service Saavn has introduced a new capability for Firefox users to monitor trending songs from the Saavn content catalog in the Firefox sidebar. If you click a song in the ticker sidebar, the selected songs are added to your Saavn play queue. There is also a quick-share option that lets you quickly post the selected track to your social networks. Activate Saavn in your Firefox by clicking here.


(Q&A with Arjun Venkateswaran, Product Manager, Saavn Web Properties)

Q: How long has Saavn been offering free Web streaming in India?
A: Saavn was founded in 2006 to bring Indian film and music content to the global Indian community. The company’s core focus shifted to music streaming in 2009.

 

Q: How many songs are in the Saavn catalog?
A: We provide a catalog of over 2 million songs to our listeners on Web, mobile, and WAP.Β  We’re constantly expanding our index with the latest emerging content.

 

Q: How many Indian languages does Saavn solicit music for?
A: We currently curate our music service in eleven languages – ten Indian languages, including Hindi (with regional content in Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Marathi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, and Bhojpuri), as well as English and International content in India only.

 

Q: What other devices is Saavn streaming available for?
A: We are accessible for streaming on the Web or via mobile with our Android, iOS, and WAP applications.

 

Q: What does Firefox Social API do for the Saavn user?
A: Social API gives us a means to surface universally trending music, across the network, or trending music that is specific to a user’s own taste or network. We hope that our users enjoy these new ways to discover and share their favorite music!


Q: Why did you decide to contribute to the sidebar for Firefox?
A: Saavn is very active in the open source community and this was one more platform on which we could develop a useful feature and contribute to the community.

    1. I would like to listen to Hindi and Marathi music.

    2. Among Hindi music, I ONLY like songs of the1960’s, ;70s and partly ’80s. I consider Sahir Ludhianvi’s “Kabhi Kabhi mere dil mein’ as the LAST Hindi song worth listening to.
    Will I be able to listen to these songs on Saavn?

      Hi Rajeev,

      You will find tons of older Hindi songs on Saavn. Check out this playlist which has your favorite song and some other major hits from Yash Chopra movies: http://www.saavn.com/s/album/hindi/A-Tribute-To-Romance—Yash-Chopra-2013/meM,5N7sdbA_

      Also, Saavn does have Marathi songs. You just have to change the language setting at the top right corner.

    Thank you so much vineel for this. Can I download the songs ?

    1. Arjun wrote on :

      Hi Anil,

      Saavn does give you the ability to “download” songs in the iOS or Android app. You need to sign up for the Free trial Pro subscription and you will be able to offline as many songs as you want on the Saavn app and listen to them on the go.

    Just noticed this new intro after it appeared on my Firefox Start Page. I have used Saavn in the past when Docmomo provided it for free with my Internet Pack. Now getting excess to the Music from within Firefox is going to make the deal much more sweeter.
    Presently installing the addon. Lets see how it goes πŸ˜€

      Hi Lakshmi,

      Currently the sidebar offers mostly Bollywood music but Saavn does have a lot of classical music. Please check it out at http://www.saavn.com.

      And yes of course you can uninstall the sidebar once it has been installed. If you have any trouble please contact Saavn at feedback@saavn.com.
