Salaam, namaste! You may have noticed we’ve gone missing for a while, and that’s a good thing. We’ve rolled out some major product enhancements on and launched a partnership with Google.

But the really big news is… Saavn for Android is here! Saavn Music, our first native mobile app for Android, went live this month, and we are ecstatic about it – especially because it was built 100% in-house by the team here at Saavn (and because several of us are Android users ourselves).

Of course, the Saavn app is free in the Android Market. And for paying nothing, you get everything! The Saavn app includes the full functionality of in just three simple tabs: Play, Browse, and Search.

The Saavn app for Android allows you to stream the hundreds of thousands of tracks in Saavn’s catalog (streaming perfectly over EDGE networks). Within the app, you can build, edit, and save playlists, sign into your account and access your existing playlists, browse the latest albums, Weekly Top 15, and featured playlists, or just hit the “Kuch Bhi” (“Surprise Me”) button to start listening with a single click.

Saavn Music isn’t just the best app for Bollywood and South Asian music – it’s the best Search-and-Play music app, period and full stop. Download Saavn Music (free) from the Android Market and let us know what you think.
