Reliance Jio Is Putting More Effort on Providing Regional Content; Jio Music Now Offers Support for Over 20 Indian Languages

Nearly one and half years ago, there was only one content leader in India, and that’s our leading telecom operator, Airtel. However, things have changed in recent times with almost every operator focusing on the segment, especially the new telecom entrant Reliance Jio leading the path.


The Mukesh Ambani-led telco has a slew of digital content services under its belt in the form of Jio Music, Jio Play, Jio Cinema, etc. With the Jio Play application, the telco is offering free Live TV for its users, and the Jio Cinema offers latest movies and TV shows.

Airtel recently separated its Wynk Music and Wynk Movies and made two different applications. Airtel’s Wynk Music has over three million songs across various genres and languages. On the flip side, we have Jio Music aimed at taking on the Wynk Music with its features.

Jio Music currently has content based on 20 Indian languages along with the international music. Also, the application allows you to choose your default language out of the 20 regional languages and sorts music accordingly.

Another best part about Jio Music is that it is entirely ad free, which means that there’s no disturbance from ads in between the songs while playing, unlike Saavn and other popular music streaming apps.

However, at just one crore songs, Jio Music has less music catalogue when compared to Airtel’s Wynk Music, but it is quickly adding new genres and artists to catch up with the latter.

Other interesting features of Jio Music are caller tune setting, ability to share a song or album right from the application itself, stream music on connected Bluetooth devices such as wearables, speakers, etc. It also comes with equaliser options to tune your audio listening.

My take on this, When jio is offering these services which are basically streamed from their own servers then why are they deducting bandwidth from the data pack? Doesn’t it make more sense to just download them instead from third party sources. These jio services would make more sense if we pay for these services alone and the bandwidth isn’t counted for these intranet streaming.

Ever heared abt net neutrality. I hope you would have also send the petition for that.

Yes I support net neutrality man. I think you got the point wrong. What I mean to say is that, as per net neutrality law you aren’t supposed to charge differentialy for the services offered irrespective of whatever it is. My concern here is based on the fact that our bandwidth is being consumed when we use jio apps, almost all content being streamed from their own servers. Why can’t this be made free or uncountable when we pay for the app services alone. To be more precise, why pay for both app services and data too. And moreover they… Read more »

jio music is the same catalogue as Nokia Music even the album art and the playlists and albums are the same. I used nokia Music with their unlimited PC download feature since 2010 and when I compare my DRM free tracks from Ovi Music to the current downloads in the Jio Music app, both are the same. Even the Jio music app is a clone of the Nokia music app, only difference being that Nokia Music gave DRM free downloads, and Jio has applied DRM restrictions on the download. And yes, the languages were there in Jio music since the… Read more »
