Free Music Streaming - Saavn vs BOTY Music - Which is Best?


Time is changing, online music streaming is picking up speed. There was a time when people used to buy songs CDs or were crazy for downloading the latest song as and when it was released. But now, the trends have shifted. Even though some people still exist who wish to download the songs. But the majority have moved to online streaming. For those who are unaware of what this is, online music streaming gives you access to any kind of music available on the net. While your internet connection is working, you can listen to your favorite genre without going through the hassle of downloading the same.

While there are many music streaming sites are available today, let's check out two music streaming sites. The one who initiated streaming, and the other who just started now - Saavn vs Boty.

Saavn

Saavn is one of the biggest players in online music streaming market. It was the first online streaming website to enter India. Saavn gives you an endless variety of English and Hindi songs. Not only the Bollywood music, one can listen to some Regional Hindi songs as well. And while you have the internet connection, you can keep listening to your favorite songs, sorted by anyways you like. And can even create a separate songs list based on your mood.



Pros of Saavn Music Streaming:
  • ·         People from over 200 countries can access the app and its music.
  • ·         You can listen to the songs by different genres, artists, or movies.
  • ·         It gives you the list of top 15 trending songs every week.
  • ·         You can create your own music list.


Cons of Saavn:
  • ·         The rankings of the songs are inaccurate, uses their own data to rank.
  • ·         Contains a lot of advertisements in between music.
  • ·         You cannot download the song unless you have purchased PRO version.
  • ·         You need to have strong internet connection for good streaming, else the music will keep on breaking.


BOTY Music

BOTY Music is the recent entrant in the online streaming market. This site was created to give you the latest Indian music releases and various other songs lists. Not only by singer, you can also search music by genres, music directors, producers and even some top song actors. The songs here are completely original and you can listen to them for free.



Pros of BOTY Music:
  • ·         This website is available all across the globe.
  • ·         Here you can listen to Marathi, Bhojpuri, Punjabi or Hindi songs for free. Just visit BOTY Music site and start listening to your favourite hindi tracks without any hassle.
  • ·         You can sort the music based on the singer, music director, or producer.
  • ·         Some special songs lists have also been created, like Deepika Padukon songs, Katrina Kaif songs, and Hrithik Roshan songs.
  • ·         Latest music releases are updated regularly and you can view the top trending songs list anytime.
  • ·         This website checks multiple sources to know the popularity of a song. And accordingly ranks them in top trending.
  • ·         There are no advertisements in between the songs.


Cons of BOTY Music:

  • ·         You cannot download the songs anywhere. Only online streaming is possible.
  • ·         You cannot create your own music list yet.
  • ·         No app for BOTY Music is available so far.


Conclusion

If you want to listen to the songs using an app on your phones, Saavn is your best choice. But if you wish to check the actual rankings of the top trending songs, there is nothing better than BOTY Music. Plus, with BOTY Music, you can also view special lists based on some popular actors like Salman Khan or Katrina Kaif.


If these 2 Apps would not fit for you, you can also try other apps like Gaana and Wynk Radio which is free for Indian users having an Airtel SIM.

Choosing The Best Headphones For Developers

Headsets are an often overlooked hardware component, yet many remote workers spend hours glued to the screen, on a conference call, screen sharing session, or any of a myriad different activities that necessitate the use of headsets, microphones, and other audio hardware.
While the Toptal blog is a place for very technical, niche content, we also serve our community. Guess what, since our community is a huge, distributed team, we hear a lot of chatter dealing with all sorts of hardware, including headsets. That’s why we decided to compile a few community suggestions and take a closer look at some industry trends that could help our community members choose the right tool for the job (and stop talking about headphones and microphones on Slack all the time).
Since we are not in the business of professionally reviewing hardware, we can’t create the ultimate guide to headphones for developers, but thanks to community input, we can offer a few words of advice and some suggestions.

The Five Don’ts Of Professional Voice Calls

So, where do we begin? Let’s take a look at the basics, let’s see what you definitely shouldn’t do if your job involves a lot of voice calls. Oh, we won’t talk about etiquette, just hardware.
  • Don’t rely on stock hardware.
  • Don’t buy the cheapest hardware; if you’re a developer, you can afford good stuff.
  • Don’t forget about your environment.
  • Don’t use low-cost wireless solutions.
  • Don’t be satisfied with “good enough” audio quality.
You have to work like a pro, talk like a pro, and sound like a pro.
Even if you have a brand new notebook and a flagship smartphone, you should not rely on stock hardware for professional voice calls. It’s simply not good enough; otherwise there would be no aftermarket audio industry to begin with. Sure, laptop microphones get the job done, but they also pick up a lot of background noise, making them unsuitable in many circumstances. Since this is a tech blog, I don’t think I need to list all the cons of using an integrated microphone for a voice call. So, how about your new smartphone and the included wired headset? In a pinch, they can be useful, but most bundled headsets are relatively short, which may be a problem from an ergonomic point of view.
Headphones for developers
You may be tempted to simply order a cheap headset with a long cable, but bear in mind that the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. There is really no need to pinch pennies here, folks; we are talking about headsets, even good ones are relatively inexpensive.
But what if you already have top notch hardware, yet you still hear complaints from the other end of the line? Well, you may want to take a closer look at your environment, whether it’s noisy, prone to echoing, or too windy (if you are one of those people who like to take their work outside).
Wireless headsets look like a great option for home office workers. In theory, they would allow you to do some basic housekeeping while discussing a project, maybe pop into the kitchen for a drink if you are in a long call, or check up on your kids or pets. The problem is that a lot of wireless headsets tend to be quirky, especially if you get cheap ones. Another obvious issue is battery life; if you take a few calls a day and spend hours talking to your teammates, it’s a good idea to use a wired headset, or at least have a wired backup ready to go.
OK, if you have quality hardware set up in a good environment, you should probably get decent audio quality. However, is decent sufficient? If you hear complaints from your colleagues every now and then, that’s surely not a big deal. Wrong. If you need to talk with clients on a regular basis, any recurring issue will just make you look unprofessional. Sort it out for your own good.

What Do You Really Need?

There is no one-size-fits-all hardware solution, otherwise this would be a very short post titled, “This is the best headset for developers, period.” Everyone has different needs and working habits, so here are a few questions you need to ask yourself:
  • Do you handle all voice calls from one place, such as your home office?
  • How often do your travel and work on the road?
  • Do you tend to work outdoors, in cafes, on a terrace, in your yard?
  • How frequently do you take part in voice calls, conference calls?
  • How much time do you spend on calls on a daily and weekly basis?
  • Will you use the headset on multiple hardware platforms?
  • Do you work alongside other people and need to talk to them while on a call?
  • Do you need a binaural or monaural headset?
If you do the majority of your work, or all of it, from your office or home office, chances are you won’t have to spend a fortune or look for high-quality hardware to meet your needs. You control the environment, you always use the same hardware, there’s not a lot of background noise, so there is not much that can go wrong. You probably don’t need a noise cancelling headset or microphone, or anything fancy for that matter.
