Today, Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia announced the availability of its Nokia Music+ service in new markets around the world, including the UK, Ireland, US, Norway, Sweden, France, and Italy.The service had been previously made available in the UK alone, but it started to arrive on devices in the US a few days ago, and is now officially launched in other countries as well.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the music service arrives with a £3.99 / $3.99 / €3.99 per month fee.
Furthermore, Nokia provides users with the possibility to enjoy the enhanced version of the music streaming service on their Nokia Lumia smartphones for free for seven days through simply entering their Nokia account details in the application.
According to Nokia, although the availability of the enhanced service is limited for the time being, markets where Nokia Music is already available will receive it in the coming weeks.
“Building on the same easy to use music discovery service, Nokia Music+ lets you create your own mixes or stream from playlists curated by our expert team of musicologists and international artists,” a recent post on Nokia Conversations reads.
The service also enables users to easily save mixes for offline listening on their devices when they have limited network connectivity.
Some of the main features that Nokia Music+ comes with include:
- The ability to download unlimited number of playlists for offline playback;
- Unlimited track skips providing greater opportunities to self-curate streamed music;
- The option to select even better quality audio when connecting via Wi-Fi;
- Lyric streaming for many tracks;
- Listen to Nokia Music via Internet-enabled devices including pc or tablet;
- Free 7 day trial.
Users who would like to take Nokia Music+ for a spin and decide to go back to the free Music service will be able to do so, without having to pay for it, with no advertisements, registration or subscription.
