Nokia launches Music+ service for Lumia owners

Nokia has launched a premium music service called Nokia Music+ that builds on the existing Mix Radio available to Lumia users and takes the fight to streaming services like Spotify

 

A Scandinavian smackdown could be on the way thanks to the new Nokia Music+ service that the Finnish company has unveiled - tempting Lumia users away from the likes of Spotify and Last.fm.

The service will sit on top of the already outstanding Nokia Mix Radio and let users cache an unlimited number of playlists as well as skipping and downloads - all for the princely sum of £3.99 a month.

“Nokia Music is great for discovering new music, and we’ve found that there’s a core of users that want even more of it. This is how Nokia Music+ came about. By introducing features like infinite skips and unlimited downloads, we’re opening the doors for unlimited music discovery," said Jyrki Rosenberg, Nokia's vice president of entertainment.

“This is for people who care enough about music to pay something for more quality and choice, but don’t want to pay €9.99 monthly.”

The new service also lets you listen at eight times the audio quality and access lyrics for those impromptu on-the-fly karaoke sessions.

There are slight limitations however - you can't fire up specific tracks, but instead have to rely on the themed playlists created by Nokia itself. Is it enough to sway folks away from the impending Windows Phone 8 version of Spotify? Let us know in the comments box below.
