“Streaming is the future of music and at Spice Africa we’re collaborating with Vodafone to deliver music to you” Samuel Blay (Spice Africa) #VGMA2017 suggested the Telecom giant was working on a Music Streaming App.
Due to infrastructural development and the increase in numbers of smartphones in Africa, Vodafone will launch a product that will give users amazing listening experience.
Vodafone A star in the UK, Vodafone also has operations in Ghana, South Africa, and Egypt. With 439.6-million subscribers, it is the second largest network in the world, after China’s China Mobile. The Chinese company has 649.5-million subscribers of which almost three quarters is owned by the Chinese government.

However, I did ask if the app supported offline playing considering the cost of internet and speed and yes it does. well, for off-line playing, the app will download the songs on your phone’s memory (Internal / External) consuming the storage space on your phone and the free storage capacity available on your phone, a number of songs can be downloaded by you for offline listening. With all this said one could tell that You do not need an internet connection for listening to your songs saved for offline listening.
