Nokia launches Music+ subscription service – for Windows Phones only
We have to admit that technology has changed the way music is consumed. People used to buy albums, then they bought digital singles, and now it’s all about the streaming services.
Google doesn’t offer such a service, Apple doesn’t have it either…. Yet, there are companies out there like Spotify, with which you pay a monthly fee and you get to listen to whatever music you want.
Strangely, another provider of streaming services stays somewhat in the “shadow”, and hasn’t attracted the attention of the mass user. We’re speaking of none other but Nokia.
Nokia offers a free streaming service called “Nokia Music” which is similar to Last.FM or Pandora. You pick an artist or a musical genre, and then the service picks songs it thinks you might like. If there’s a song you don’t like, you can always skip it.
Today Nokia is introducing a paid version called Music+. It costs only 4 USD (4 EUR abroad) per month, and offers higher quality audio, unlimited skips, unlimited offline playlists, and there’s even a new web app.
Now that we’ll have the Music+ perhaps Google can copy and provide it, too. Countless services talk about their libraries of 20+ million songs, but who cares if you don’t know which tracks are worth your time?
Come on, Google, make us proud.
