Jiosaavn UWP brings Bollywood to Windows 10 phones (and PCs)

Published by at

Now here's an example of a stunningly well written UWP application for Windows 10, including on phones. Jiosaavn UWP features the world of Bollywood music, for streaming and (with the 'pro' upgrade) download. Not being into the genre personally, it's all a bit wasted on me, but I've given it a go below and can appreciate how comprehensive and functional it is!

From the Store description:

Unlimited MusicOver 45 million tracks across Bollywood songs, English¹ and International hits, Hindi chartbusters, independent Indian artists, and all your Indian regional music. Build your dream collection.

Playlists and RadioExpertly curated playlists and custom radio stations for any mood or genre. Listen free with ads, or get JioSaavn Pro for full access to all premium features including:

Save Data & Listen to Songs OfflineDownload your favorite songs, albums, and playlists to save data, and listen anywhere – even without internet – on up to five devices.

Enjoy Ad-Free MusicCompletely ad-free listening, just you and your music.

Beautiful High Quality AudioListen at crystal clear 320kbps, streaming or downloading. Enjoy music the way it was meant to be heard.

Stop fussing with free music players, searching for Bollywood mp3 songs, or risking viruses from side-loading Hindi music apps or downloading the latest Hindi songs from shady websites. JioSaavn is your free music player, with all your favorites, old and new, across Hindi, English¹, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam, Bhojpuri, Rajasthani, Urdu, Haryanvi, Assamese, and Odia.

And here's Jiosaavn UWP in action under Windows 10 Mobile:


A well laid out UWP application, hamburger navigation and all. Everything's here, including an offline mode and 'pro' downloads; (right) there's tons to stream for free though, if you want some Bollywood in your life!


Loads of curated Bollywood/Hindi playlists; (right) five different streaming quality settings - impressive!


Music carries on playing elsewhere in the app, and also in the background while you use your phone for other things. All very professional. There are some half-baked ads though - I guess any Bollywood fans will go pro though, in which case the ads get zapped.

You can grab this here in the Store if you want to get your Bollywood on!
