One of the most famous music streaming App in the country, this one offers a 14-day trial period of the Gaana+ service which promises an advertisement-free HD audio experience.
Other than that, the App has an easy on the eye interface and its monthly subscription priced at a lowly Rs. 99. The site can also be made free by discontinuing various services, such as the offline saving.
One thing that the site offers better than its contemporaries is the ability to list the song(s) that the user’s friends are listening to, something which adds to the user experience.
