After announcing a paid version of Nokia Music back in February, the subscription service dubbed Nokia Muisc+ has now been released in Australia. Lumia owners will now get access to the music catalogue for just A$4.99 per month. This price comes in much lower than competitive services like Spotify and Rdio, but reflects the limited device support available.
Nokia Music+ builds on the existing Nokia Music Mix Radio service and allows users to access a wide number of playlists curated by an expert team of musos and international artists. Nokia Music+ also introduces features infinite skips unlike the recently released Pandora app.
Other features of Nokia Music+ include:
- the ability to download unlimited mixes for offline playback
- the option to select higher quality audio when connecting via Wi-Fi or through your network
- access to lyrics for those impromptu karaoke sessions
- the ability to listen and enjoy via Internet-enabled devices including PC or tablet
To upgrade from the free Nokia Music, to the paid Nokia Music+, users can select the settings option in ‘Nokia Music’ and there will be an option to ‘Upgrade’. You can select ‘Nokia Music+’ to activate the subscription then click on ‘Mix Radio’ to start downloading your playlists.
If you’re not sold on the idea, you can try out Nokia Music+ for free for seven days.
