Line has already announced the end of MixRadio music streaming service. Now the latest update received by MixRadio app of Windows phone shows a Farewell screen. Which means no longer you can use MixRadio music streaming service. So there will be another new update in within some weeks which will completely stop the app and service.
MixRadio, formerly Nokia MixRadio, Nokia Music, Nokia Music Store and OVI Music Store, is a global music streaming service. MixRadio allows free streaming of playlists (and offlinedownloading of mixes for local playback) without any subscriptions and is available in 31 countries, including the US, Brazil, India and China. It has a catalogue of over 36 million songs. The music file format used by the store is MP3 without any DRM protection.
The service was originally developed by Nokia in 2007, and was part of the company’s sale of its mobile device business to Microsoft in April 2014. Microsoft, already having Xbox Music, decided to spin-off the service, with LINE Corporation purchasing the service in December 2014.
MixRadio was officially released to the Android and iOS app stores on May 19, 2015. MixRadio quickly reached 100,000 downloads on the Android platform a week later, and hit the 500,000 download milestone on June 8, 2015.
As of January 29, 2016, the Android version of MixRadio has been downloaded more than 5,000,000 (5 million) times through Google Play.
Anyway this is a very very sad news for Music lovers. Because as I mentioned above there are many of the users world wide. What do you think about it ?
