MixRadio unlimited downloads subscription renewal no longer available in India

MixRadio logo

MixRadio users in India will no longer be able to renew their unlimited download subscriptions for offline listening, reports WindowsCentral. Users will still be able to stream music through the app. The unlimited downloads feature was one of the highlights of the service, from an Indian perspective, as it reduced data bills and users didn’t have to depend on data connections to continue listening to their favourite tracks.

Note that the option to renew the unlimited downloads subscription had been unavailable in India for quite a few months now. Now it has been officially discontinued. Interestingly, MixRadio India (@MixRadioIndia) had recently tweeted that they are “working to make the vouchers available as soon as possible so that users can continue to download songs.”

This is bad news for Windows Phone users in India, and while Saavn doesn’t have a Windows app yet, Gaana does. Microsoft’s Xbox Music isn’t available in India either.

MixRadio spin-off: Earlier this year, after Microsoft announced plans to cut 18,000 jobs, it was reported that MixRadio is set to be spun-off into an independent company. At the time, MixRadio head Jyrki Rosenberg had told Music Ally that post the spin-off Microsoft and MixRadio will continue to maintain strong links and the app will continue to be preloaded on Windows Phone smartphones. Earlier this month, a source-based TechCrunch report mentioned that Microsoft is actively seeking investors to spin-off MixRadio into an independent entity, and that a deal could soon be closed.
