We have so far only seen glimpses of Nokia Music’s Windows 8 app, but now Nokia has taken the wraps of the app at Mobile World Congress 2013.

The app supports the same curated and custom mixes as the Windows Phone app, and also has off-line support.  It supports showing lyrics next to the playing track, and comes in both Windows 8 and Windows RT flavours.

Unfortunately to use the app one needs to be a Music + subscriber, for $3.99, but at least this means unlimited skipping, as the app does not support choosing tracks directly.

See the video after the break.

Does the presence of the app make readers more likely to subscribe to Nokia’s Music + service? Let us know below.
