Yes! When you download a music from Saavn for offline listening its download in your internal memory in MP3 format. If you navigate that folder, then you will find your downloaded music there.

  1. First install Saavn App on your Android phone
  2. Login via FB to get free subscriptions for 7 days for first time use else purchase it/
  3. Now you can download music for offline listening, just download those music you want
  4. Once you have downloaded play any of those downloaded musics

  6. Now open File Explorer and navigate to Internal SD card>> Android>>data>>>>songs folder
  7. You will find a file curr.mp3, just copy this file and paste anywhere except that folder.  I personally paste in Internal Storage>> Songs or Music folder
  8. Now rename that curr.mp3 file to that music that you have paused playing in step 5
  9. You have successfully saved a music file from Saavn permanently which can be played using any music player.
  10. Now you download another music play any other music from downloaded list and do these steps from 5 to 8 again.

For every single music you want to download you need to first play via Saavn then pause it, then copy paste from Savvn’s root folder. What basically happens here, when you download music from Saavn its get downloaded in encrypted format. But when you play via Saavn it gets decrypted and saves as a temp file name curr.mp3 which seems to current mp3 file. Now our job is just to make a copy of that decrypted file to save it permanently.

This is a one kind of flaw that Saavn have and I tried this method for Gaana but  it did not work. Till then Saavn figure out this bug you can download songs from Saavn and saves on your device permanently so that you can play without using Saavn app.
