Nokia launches Music Plus, a paid music streaming service, updates Music app
But there are a few limitations like the inability to skip more than 6 songs in an hour, and you cannot cache too many playlists for offline listening. To completely overcome this, Nokia has now started offering a paid optional feature that would allow you to skip as many songs as you like and cache as many playlists as you want.
The price is 3.99 euro a month or the equivalent in other currencies, and while it was not announced for the United States, we guess the service would cost $3.99 stateside. So overall, this would buy you unlimited offline stations, built-in lyrics and high-def audio over Wi-Fi.
The other new features to Nokia Music are the following:
- Never miss a gig again by adding them to your calendar
- Purchase tracks and albums using your operator bill (selected operators only)
- Start Nokia Music quicker and go back to where you were before
Of these, we are particularly thankful for the faster start-up time for Nokia Music which depending on your handset ranges from slow to eternity. You can update or get the app at the link below.
