Nokia has updated its Nokia Music app, which allows free access to the music of millions of artists, to include the technology by Echo Nest to personalize automated playlists.
The app will allow the user either to create a station based on 3 artists who’s style they like (from a library of 20,000 artists) or to have the app analyse the music they have on their phone already.
Up to 5 such stations can be created.
The update also ads Gigfinder, whichÂ Â users your location and todayâ€™s date and lists the nearest, soonest gigs happening round you. Where available, you can click through to booking information. You can now also share the gig details with friends using SMS, email or social networks.
Nokia Music works in 38 countries, is completely free to Nokia customers, does not require a log-in or account and can download up to 3 hours of music for off-line listening.
