Free music streaming apps in India

If you like your music on demand, streaming it on your mobile may be a good idea – you won’t have to worry about space constraints. Here are a few free services available in India.

Streaming is a great way to listen to music on the go. You don’t have to purchase music – all you need is an internet connection. However, due to licensing restrictions, many music-streaming services won’t run on mobile in India. You may still get their services on an internet-connected desktop PC, but their apps are restricted for use mainly in the US.

Spotify may be the largest and most popular music streaming app out there, but it’s not available in India – neither is Pandora. Here we bring you the few music-streaming services available for free in India.

Wynk
Airtel’s Wynk Music app lets you stream Hindi and English songs, as well as songs in other regional languages, for free. There is a monthly subscription if you want to download songs to your phone for offline listening.
Get it here (Android) or here (iOS)

Gaana
This app lets you stream mostly Hindi stuff, but there’s English music also, in addition to songs in regional languages. In total, the site claims that users have access to over 3 million songs as well as 5 Radio Mirchi stations. For a monthly subscription of Rs99 you can remove ads and download songs to your smartphone.
Get it here (Android), here (BlackBerry), here (BlackBerry 10), here (iOS) or here (Windows Phone)

Saavn
Just like Gaana, Saavn allows free users to stream unlimited music. And you can create playlists or choose from the assortment available. There’s also a subscription-based package with which you can download music and get rid of ads. It is priced at Rs120 per month and gives you 3G of downloads.
Get it here (Android) or here (iOS)

Rdio
The thing about Rdio is that you can’t choose what songs to listen to, although you can tune in to any of several stations available. A subscription will cost you Rs119 per month and open up access to albums and playlists, and remove ads.
Get it here (Android), here (iOS) or here (Windows Phone)

Also consider:

Grooveshark
This ad-supported free music-streaming service can be accessed on your mobile’s internet browser. It is a pretty handy service when it comes to creating playlists. You might want to try this one out for its song base and ease of use.

Soundcloud
Soundcloud is an alternative take on music streaming. It is intended for people to share their own music, and although big artists can be found here, official music hasn’t taken off on the service too much. Users can upload their own music and you can follow them and browse for tracks.
Get it here (Android) and here (iOS)
