JioSaavn App for Android, iOS; 90-day complimentary to Jio users
New Delhi : Reliance Jio has announced JioSaavn app, after it was seen on the App Store. The app is the fruitful effort of Reliance Industries acquisition of Saavn in March 2018, when it acquired a majority stake in the company.
On the App Store (for iOS), the Saavn app has been rebranded to JioSaavn, while on Google Play (for Android), the Jio Music app has been rebranded to Android. Notably, the changelog of the Jio Music app for iOS notes that it will be rebranded to JioSaavn soon, following an update.
All Jio network users will be offered 90 days complimentary access to the premium JioSaavn Pro subscription.
Earlier in March, Reliance Jio has announced that the combined entity of Jio Music and Saavn would have a combined value of roughly Rs. 7,025 crores that includes an ‘implied valuation' of about Rs. 4,700 crores for Jio Music alone. According to the deal, Jio was reported to take a stake in Saavn for around Rs. 730 crores with the three co-founders keeping their leadership posts. At the announcement, Jio had announced that it had plans to invest roughly Rs. 702 crores in the joint entity.
