Does Saavn support Chromecast?
Saavn supports Chromecast. However, you need to have the Pro version of the app to use this feature. That said, there are 2 ways to cast Saavn to a Chromecast. And that’s by using a mobile device or a PC.
Saavn compatibility with Chromecast – 5 facts
Now, before I share my favorite facts about this app…
Note that Saavn is now officially branded as “JioSaavn.” That’s why I’ll use both names interchangeably in this article.
And now that’s clear, here’s the 1st exciting fact about the app:
#1: You can only cast the Pro version of Saavn
Saavn is a free online streaming service from India.
However, you can only Cast this app if you subscribe to their premium or Pro plan.
With that said, if you want to connect Saavn to your Chromecast…
You need to spend a bit of money monthly.
“How much do I have to pay exactly?”
Saavn Pro costs $4.99 per month.
And if you’re wondering what features come with it, here are the…
Perks of getting a JioSaavn Pro subscription:
- Personalized playlists.
- Unlimited song downloads.
- High-quality audio (320 kbps).
- Ad-free streaming experiences.
- Access to more than 80 million songs.
- You can simultaneously use the same account on 5 devices.
Moreover, you can also use the app for offline listening.
So honestly, I think you’ll get good value from your money with Saavn’s pro.
#2: Saavn lets you cast songs from 15 languages
Saavn isn’t as big as other music streaming services like:
- Apple Music.
However, it’s still worth noting that the app caters to over a dozen languages.
And really, this number can still increase in the future.
That said, here are some examples of the music languages you can hear on Saavn:
Now, you’ll probably only prefer a couple of languages. And won’t necessarily want to hear songs from worldwide.
So if you want to specify the music languages you want, just follow these steps:
- Turn ON the Saavn app.
- Head to Settings.
- Click Music Languages.
- Add or remove any language.
After selecting the music languages you want…
You’ll also be able to stream them on your Chromecast.
#3: Saavn is compatible with Alexa (but it isn’t with Chromecast)
Underrated but powerful.
That’s what Saavn is.
Because it’s an official partner of Amazon, 1 of the biggest companies in the world.
That said, Saavn is also compatible with the voice assistant Alexa.
So you can control your Saavn app hands-free as long as you have an Echo.
Chromecast isn’t compatible with Chromecast.
That said, you won’t be able to use this AI to command your Chromecast to launch Saavn.
So you still need to manually cast the app to your TV.
And now, while we’re on the topic…
Let me just point out that Amazon isn’t the only big company partnered with Saavn.
That’s because the app also has partnerships with:
- Sony Music.
#4: The Android version was released before the iOS app
JioSaavn is available on both Android and iOS.
However, the Android application was released before the iOS app.
See, the Android Saavn was released in 2010.
While Saavn for iOS devices launched almost 2 years later: 2012.
However, bear in mind that during the earliest years of this music app…
It wasn’t compatible with Casts yet.
That’s because Chromecast was released after the Saavn app. And that was way back in 2013.
But rest assured that now, all Saavn apps are compatible with Chromecasts.
So whether you have an Android or iOS…
You can still stream your favorite Saavn playlists on the bigger screen.
#5: You can cast more than 80 million songs with Saavn
Big number, eh?
But luckily, that’ll just keep growing.
So rest assured that you’ll have endless song choices with the Saavn app. Even though it isn’t as popular as other music platforms.
However, it’s worth noting that some Saavn songs are only available in certain countries.
So if you see a grayed-out song in the app or your Chromecast…
That’s because the track isn’t available in your location.
