Nokia introduces subscription option to Music service

updated 05:45 am EST, Mon January 28, 2013

Unlimited Mix downloads, included song lyrics

Nokia is introducing an upgrade option to its Music service, with minor service improvements given in exchange for a subscription bringing it in line with premium-tier offerings from other services like Spotify. Nokia Music+ will expand on the existing free Mix Radio service by offering access away from Nokia handsets, the removal of download limits, and an improvement of sound quality.

Users will get an unlimited number of track skips for mixes, and can also download more than the current limit of four Mixes at a time, each Mix consisting of over an hour's worth of music, and can be played without an Internet connection, according to a company blog post. The Music+ quality is also said to be up to eight times the quality of the free tier, and also includes the option of setting when downloads of the high-quality streams can occur, such as when on a Wi-Fi connection. A web app will allow access to Music+ through a computer or smart TV as well as Lumia devices, while lyrics for songs can be downloaded and scrolled through as a song plays through.

Nokia Music+, rolling out in the coming weeks, will cost around $4 per month, depending on territory.
