Crazy stat 🤯 We’ll see if JioSaavn, as its parent RelianceJio continues to barnstorm India’s telecom market with affordable 4G/LTE, will hit this milestone too.

Both have cut fees by 70% to counter Spotify/YouTube Music in India (₹99 vs ₹129)

We can already see the Saavn switch happening..

Feb 2018 on the Google App Store (more Androids in India): Gaana #51, Saavn #318
April 2019: Saavn #23, Gaana #28

(Also fun to note: Saavn’s video streaming service - JioTV - ranks #24)

The song streaming market in India alone will reach $35B+ by 2020.

Gaana‘s main owner is a conglomerate you’ve never heard of: Times Group. It owns 39+ digital products across news, sports, music, video, trivia, spirituality & a suite of transaction-led marketplaces including..
