Thursday 13 March 2014 00:00 CET | News

South Asian Audio Video Network (Saavn), an Indian music streaming service, has entered an agreement with Airtel and Vodafone to bring direct carrier billing to its mobile subscribers using the Android app.

Following the agreement, subscribers of Airtel and Vodafone are able to pay for access to Saavn Pro, the company’s offline music listening product, without a credit card and without committing to a subscription. The direct carrier billing is set to enable Indians to make payments for ad-free, offline access to Saavn’s music library, without a credit card.

Subscribers of Airtel and Vodfone can purchase Saavn Pro with their prepaid carrier balances or postpaid accounts on Android devices. Saavn Pro enables users to listen to their music offline and without advertisements. Prepaid (non-subscription) users of Saavn Pro have access to the same features as subscription users of Pro, with their offline content available for listening during paid periods. Offline content is maintained on the prepaid listener’s device and reactivated with payment.

In recent news, Vodafone India has rolled out its M-Pesa, a mobile wallet and money transfer service, for radio taxi operator TABcab in Mumbai.
