A big advantage for consumers will be they do not have to keep separate apps for different content…All will be available at one place…
Let’s discuss more about these 2 apps:
Mi Music’s streaming service will be powered by Hungama Music, which is South Asia’s largest digital entertainment organization. It will offer more than 10 million “freemium” tracks in 13 Indic plus international languages.
Users will be able to download music offline only by upgrading to Hungama Pro package with Mi Music for Rs 899 per year.
Hungama users, and now Mi Music users by extension, get unlimited lifetime music streaming for free, along with interesting features like Dynamic Lyrics. With Dynamic Lyrics, you will be able to enjoy songs in “karaoke” style. One will be able to surf through a song via lyrics by enabling lyrics to follow the song.
With Mi Music, other music content providers like Saavn, Gaana, and Jio Music will have to face huge competition…
Mi Video’s streaming service is powered by Hungama Play, SonyLiv, and Voot, with more partners, promised for the future. The service will have content in 12 video formats – AVI, MP4, MKV, MKA, MPEG, M2TS etc. Videos will also be supported by multilingual subtitles, private folders, and multiple audio tracks.
Mi Video claims to offer more than 500,000 hours of content with a claimed 80% of it being free content. Content in this service will be able to be cast on Smart TV with DLNA and Miracast support. It is promised by the company that in the coming months, more media content partners will be added like TVF, Flickstree, Sun NXT, Zee5, Hotstar, Viu and Alt Balaji.
With the Mi Video also you don’t look around for video content… One app – Over 500,00 hours of video content in various languages…
Why this Decision?
The company’s introduction of music and video streaming services in India indicates that Xiaomi has finally started working on its primary product, which is software. The company sells hardware with an extremely narrow profit margin (recently capped to 5 percent) but that’s only because the hardware is a medium to sell their main product, software.
So, Xiaomi fans get all your digital content now!!! Just update your app and get loads of content all at your fingertips, Ohh sorry at your smartphone… 🙂
