Nokia Music + fans might want to get into a dancing mood right now, as the app is available in the Windows 8 store for Windows 8 and Windows RT tablet devices. This is great news; it means users can have all their music with them as long they have both a Windows 8 device, and a Windows Phone 8 Lumia handset.
Nokia Music + allows users to listen to streaming tracks of their favorite musicians. It's free, but don't expect to have the ability to choose what kind of tracks you wish to listen to, for it's all random. However, there is something called Nokia Music +, which would set you back $4 per month for the ability to skip between tracks and read song lyrics while the music plays, karaoke-style.
Not only that, but by subscribing, users will have high quality tracks to listen to. Users will have the option to choose whether or not they want to stream high quality music over their mobile network, or just over Wi-Fi. Here's the kicker: the option is there to download mix radio tracks for offline playback, perfect for those times when you're away in some jungle area where there is no Internet connection, or if there comes a time when you're trapped in a desert in the middle of nowhere.
"Nokia Music is great for discovering new music, and we've found that there's a core of users that want even more of it. This is how Nokia Music+ came about. By introducing features like infinite skips and unlimited downloads, we're opening the doors for unlimited music discovery at only €3.99 per month," Jyrki Rosenberg, VP Entertainment at Nokia said in a Nokia blog post.
We'll be taking Nokia Music for Windows 8 for a spin, a full review shouldn't be too far off, so stay tuned for that.
