Bangalore, June 2 2018: Leading Indian music app, Gaana, has brought Voice Assistant to the app interface. This feature which has been in beta for the last 3 months has now been released to the entire user base on Android (iOS coming soon).
This will enable users to play their favorite songs using Voice as a primary action medium. Gaana already supports 13 languages. Users can now stream songs by saying ‘Play Channa Mereya', play songs from their favorite artist by saying ‘ Play Arijit songs’, or revel in their mood by saying ‘Play Romantic songs’, etc.
Says Prashan Agarwal, CEO Gaana: ‘We believe Voice to be the next frontier in technology evolution and want to bring the convenience of Voice assistant to our users. Now a user can use his Voice to play songs of his choice on Gaana. This is also a critical feature as the next 100 mn customers coming on the internet will be from rural India and will use Voice as their primary tool to navigate interfaces. This is in line with our philosophy to bring the latest innovation to the Indian customer.'
Gaana also recently announced its integration on all Google Home devices. The idea is to make user’s home music listening experience on Gaana better by increasing convenience and ambient outreach - through streaming on Chromecast or Android TV. Both Google and Gaana have tapped in to their pragmatic market experience and technological expertise to make the experience and the joy of listening as seamless as possible.
Gaana is available on Android, iOS and Web and has more than 60 million monthly active users.
