Nokia has today announced Nokia Music+, which is a premium music service from Nokia. While Nokia Music still remains free for Lumia owners, the new service is for those who want more features and are ready to shell a lot less than what is usually required for other premium music services. Nokia Music+ brings a slew of new and richer options for a low monthly subscription fee of €3.99 as compared to usual €9.99 monthly or more for similar paid music services.
The new features that this premium service adds to Nokia Music are summarized below,
Unlimited skips. Whether you like to skip from track to track, or just want extra control over what you hear. There’s no stopping you with Nokia Music+.
Unlimited downloads. The free service allows you to download up to four Mixes (each of which contains hours of music) and play them without an Internet connection. The paid service removes this limit – you can download a massive supply of offline music you can swap as you wish.
Higher quality. We were surprised by the high quality of streaming music from Nokia Music, even over a 2.5G connection. Nokia Music+ allows you to download music at eight times the existing quality. Plus, you can set rules to only download high quality when you’re on WiFi, for example.
Lyrics. Words to the songs you’re listening to, right on your Nokia Lumia. Either in a scrolling list, Karaoke-style format, or a display you can scroll up and down.
Onyour desktop. The Nokia Music+ subscription also gives you access to the service without your phone. A web-app gives you the ability to play Mixes on your computer, smart TV or other connected screens.
This really looks like great competitive pricing for ad-free premium music service that “Nokia Music+” is. What do you think? Do let us know in comments.
