The future of Nokia Music was in doubt when Microsoft announced their acquisition of Nokia Devices and Services division. Nokia VP once commented that the following on future of Nokia Music,
“All I would say is that if you look at what they’ve done(Microsoft with Xbox Music) and what we’ve done carefully, there are some very complementary activities going on, and very little overlap,”
Chinese site CTech today reported that Nokia is planning to release HTML5 versions of their Music app for iOS and Android platforms. They even posted some screenshots of the upcoming Nokia Music HTML5 app in action. Find it after the break. Just like how Nokia has decided to keep HERE Maps platform with themselves, there is a possibility that Nokia will try to retain Nokia Music service after the acquisition. I think Microsoft would agree with this deal since they are already moving forward with Xbox Music app with native apps on different platforms.
What do you think?
Nokia is expanding the availability of Nokia Music service into new countries in the South East Asia. It is now available in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, following a recent rollout in Indonesia. Nokia Entertainments VP Jyrki Rosenburg spoke to Musically on this launch and provided the following statement,
First, the new countries: “These are important new countries for us, and with Indonesia it’s quite a significant expansion in the south-east Asia Pacific region for us,” he said.
“We definitely feel that we have a strong time-to-market advantage here: an out-of-the-box click-to-play music service that’s free with no ads or registration. That’s something nobody else is offering in those markets at this time, so we think we’ll see a positive response.”
When he was questioned about the future of Nokia Music service after Microsoft’s acquisition since Microsoft has got its own music service called Xbox Music, he answered the following.
“All I would say is that if you look at what they’ve done and what we’ve done carefully, there are some very complementary activities going on, and very little overlap,”
I hope Nokia Music service stays even after Nokia becomes the part of Microsoft.

Nokia today posted a message on its online music store that Nokia Music site is no longer available. Nokia Music content will remain accessible on Nokia phones via respective apps. This was a expected move from Nokia since they were running the website and desktop client in maintenance mode as per global Nokia Care policy. They had shut down desktop downloads in December 2011 and moved to mobile only subscription plans since then.
Nokia was offering unlimited music downloads from Nokia Music Store through an active Nokia Music Unlimited subscription which was offered for free for limited period on most Nokia devices in India. This subscription was offering customers to download DRM free music via web, desktop and mobile devices. After today, you can access it only via Nokia mobile device.
How can I see if I have an active subscription?
Go to Nokia Music on your phone and then look in settings.
Can I transfer music from my phone to my PC?
You can use any compatible software to transfer music you have download on your phone to your PC,example Windows Media Player, Zune or Nokia PC suite.
I no longer have a Nokia phone.
Your Nokia Music Unlimited subscription can only be used on a Nokia phone.
Can I use Nokia Music Player?
If you have Nokia Music Player you can use it to listen to music on your PC.
Due to the changes Nokia implements to its services, Nokia Music Unlimited is no longer accessible through this website.
