Nokia today announced a new subscription based music service called Music+ that will allow Lumia Windows Phone device owners to enjoy more music. Nokia Music+ will roll out in the next few weeks and isÂ expected toÂ be available at around â‚¬3.99/month.
You will get the following features with the new service,
Unlimited skips:Â Whether you like to skip from track to track, or just want extra control over what you hear. Thereâ€™s no stopping you with Nokia Music+.
Unlimited downloads:Â The free service allows you to download up to four Mixes (each of which contains hours of music) and play them without an Internet connection. The paid service removes this limit â€“ you can download a massive supply of offline music you can swap as you wish.
Higher quality:Â We were surprised by the high quality of streaming music from Nokia Music, even over a 2.5G connection. Nokia Music+ allows you to download music at eight times the existing quality. Plus, you can set rules to only download high quality when youâ€™re on WiFi, for example.
Lyrics:Â Words to the songs youâ€™re listening to, right on your Nokia Lumia. Either in a scrolling list, Karaoke-style format, or a display you can scroll up and down.
On your desktop:Â The Nokia Music+ subscription also gives you access to the service without your phone. A web-app gives you the ability to play Mixes on your computer, smart TV or other connected screens.
This new service is focused on hitting the sweet spot between free music services and paid services that offer music at $9.99 per month. What do you think of this new service?
