It’s the only smartphone music service out there offering access to millions of songs out of the box without the need to sign up, sign in, or suffer adverts in between enjoying the music. When you add in the ability to skip songs and save playlists for offline uses like the tube, you have something unique. We spend a lot of time listening to how people use the service and have even managed to half the amount of skips per songs played, which is a combination of our systems and musicologists understanding and shaping Nokia Music around the users. 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. This is for people who care enough about music to pay something for more quality and choice, but don’t want to pay €9.99 monthly.Interestingly enough, Nokia Music+ has all the same features Xbox Music has, expect for the Lyrics feature which Xbox Music does not have. Nokia Music+ is expected to roll out in the coming weeks.
