Nokia Music is one of the many things that people appreciate when it comes to services offered by the Finnish company. The main reason is the fact that it’s available for free and allows users to play music both online and offline.
For those who are already taking advantage of the Nokia Music service for free, as well as for new users, the handset maker has just announced the upcoming availability of a premium version.
Dubbed Nokia Music+, the new service will be launched in Europe in the following weeks for only €3.99 monthly, but the price will vary slightly according to territory.
Nokia also mentioned that the Music+ service would also cost $3.99 per month, which suggests the Finnish company plans to make it available in the United States as well.
Unlike the free Nokia Music service, the premium version has no limit on the number of track users can listen to while offline.
Nokia Music+ also comes with “unlimited skips,” allowing users to skip from track to track and they see fit. The track downloaded via Nokia Music+ offer a higher quality as the service provides users with the option to download music at eight times the existing quality.
With Music+, those who own a Nokia Lumia smartphone will be able to read the lyrics of every song either in a scrolling list, Karaoke-style format, or a display.
Last but not least, customers who subscribe to Music+ will also receive access to the service without their phones via a web-app that allows them to play Mixes on their computer, smart TV or other connected screens.
“It’s the only smartphone music service out there offering access to millions of songs out of the box without the need to sign up, sign in, or suffer adverts in between enjoying the music. When you add in the ability to skip songs and save playlists for offline uses like the tube, you have something unique,” said Jyrki Rosenberg, VP Entertainment at Nokia.
