The Music experience is available for free exclusively on the Nokia Lumia devices
, enabling users to benefit from a simple and delightful way to enjoy music.
The service provides users with the possibility to stream music from a suite of more than 150 exclusive playlists curated and kept up to date by a team of US musicologists.
“The playlists span a wide spectrum of musical genres from underground Detroit house tracks to New York Philharmonic favorites. Nokia Music also offers playlists created by global artists such as Lana Del Rey, Lady Gaga and Rihanna,” Nokia announced.

Music ‘CREATE’ function.
