Wynk is backed by Airtel which is the largest telecom operator in India and as a result, Airtel subscribers get certain freebies, we will talk about it later
Let’s start with content,
The content catalog is large and diverse which caters to almost every jonour in the country. they have a wide list of playlists, content is curated based on artists, moods, gene and a special category for devotional is also available.
This ensures that listeners of every taste are taken care of, Online Radio is also available, if you are feeling lazy and want to be pleasantly surprised you just need to select an journey of the online radio and enjoy the music
A good number of Regional songs are also available, a user can select any of the given regional languages and get songs and playlists of the selected language on the app home screen.
Now, the 2nd most important thing on a streaming service apart from content is data, and how much the app consumes it, users will be happy to know that the app allows you to select the quality of the song to be streamed and also allows you to separately select the quality of the songs to be downloaded and the user can also set up wifi only song download option,for airtel users some free data option is available in certain circles, and users need to check this out in their respective circles
Overall, if your concern is unaccounted data consumption, you can put those fears to rest.
In case you are wondering if it supports google Chromecast or not, the answer is a big YES and it works like a dream, the app will automatically show you a cast icon if a Chromecast device is available within range or in the same network, here for this video we are using Chromecast 2 device.
Well the app does have its fair share of bugs and issues, most issues are related to flight mode data management
Once you set the phone to flight mode, some downloaded songs and playlists do not play, and when the flight mode is removed the same songs and playlists play normally which defeats the purpose of downloading songs in the first place, we think this issue should be resolved on a priority basis
2nd issue is deleting downloaded songs, if you want to delete all downloaded songs or delete a huge no of songs from your phone, you have to do it one by one, which is very frustrating and tiresome, airtel needs to do something about this, it thinks this is a royalty and rights issue and a business decision taken by airtel.
