I'm someone who enjoys listening to podcasts, stories, and ragas throughout the day, especially when I'm working and want to avoid screen time or when I need a break to clear my head. There's something about the immersive nature of audio that helps me focus and de-stress. I'm curious how others use audio in their daily routines. Do you have any favorite genres or types of content you listen to while working, commuting, or simply relaxing? What features in an audio OTT platform would enhance your listening experience in these situations? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

I consume podcasts on marketing, design, and some Indian classical music. For many years, I could not understand the importance of Raga and Indian Classical music. The more time I am spending with it, the more I am loving it. :) How about you, Yash? @yashchaudhary

@amit_arora Thanks so much for sharing your listening preferences! It's awesome to hear you're diving into the world of Indian classical music. It's a journey for sure! The depth and complexity of ragas can take time to appreciate, but the rewards are truly amazing. What has surprised you the most about your experience with Indian classical music so far? For me, it's the emotional depth and the way it creates a unique atmosphere. Do you find that certain ragas resonate with you more than others? I'm always curious to hear what draws people to this incredible genre. And I'd love to know, what's missing for you in the current audio apps? What features or improvements would make your experience even better? Thanks again for contributing to the discussion!

Hey @yashchaudhary! ๐Ÿ˜„ I completely relate to your love for immersive audio content. I personally enjoy a mix of podcasts, especially on tech and storytelling, and some calming music playlists during work. It really helps me stay focused without the constant need for screen interaction. A feature I'd love in an audio OTT platform would be personalized recommendations based on my mood or activity. What about you? Do you have any go-to podcasts or music genres you swear by? ๐ŸŽงโœจ

@abhra_ch That's insightful, Abhra ! I usually listen to business or psychology podcasts along with mythological gyan ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. In music, from few years punjab songs is goto genre for me most of the time. Otherwise late 2000s english songs - Enrique, Usher, Eminem, Florida, etc. you got it ๐Ÿ™‚

@yashchaudhary, I totally get what you mean about the immersive nature of audio content helping to focus and de-stress! ๐Ÿ˜„ I personally enjoy a good mix of podcasts and music when I'm working or commuting. Podcasts like true crime and tech updates keep me engaged, while a chill lo-fi playlist is perfect for those quiet moments. An audio OTT platform with features like personalized playlists based on mood or activity, and offline download would be amazing! What are some of your favorite podcasts or stories? ๐Ÿ˜Š

I love diving into podcasts, audiobooks, and sometimes ambient sounds, especially when my brain needs a mini-vacation from screens. It's like a cozy audio blanket hugging my thoughts! What's your go-to audio escape during those screen-heavy days?

@thestarkster The "cozy audio blanket" analogy is spot on! It's amazing how audio can transport us and offer a mental escape, especially after staring at screens for too long. My current go-to escape is a mix of narrative podcasts (love a good mystery or sci-fi story), instrumental music, and occasionally, guided meditations when I need extra help unwinding. I looked into your upcoming project, "What's Her Ideal Match?". Sounds like a fun and innovative. I'll definitely be checking it out.
