At the time of writing the Nokia Music+ service is not yet available, but with this update the Nokia Music app is now enabled for the new service. Users will be able to subscribe to the service within the app, with additional features (lyrics, unlimited mix downloads, high quality streams, unlimited skips) enabled after the initial subscription payment.
As we previously noted the upgrade to Nokia Music+ will be available within the app:
Nokia Music+ will be available as an "upgrade" within the Nokia Music app. By paying the monthly subscription fee (via credit card or operator billing), which is linked to an individual Nokia Account (ID), users will gain access to the additional features. They will also be able to use a web-app (HTML 5) based version of Nokia Music on other devices.
Nokia has said that users will be prompted to subscribe to Nokia Music+ when they run up against the limits (downloads, skips) of the current service, and that subscription options will be available through the settings section of the app. Once the Nokia Music+ service goes live the app will automatically make subscription options available.
Here's the full change log from the Windows Phone Store:
New features in this version
- 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
- Subscribe to Nokia Music+ and get unlimited offline stations, skips, lyrics and HQ audio streams (selected countries only)
Nokia Music can be downloaded from the Nokia collection in the Windows Phone Store. The updated version is currently for Windows Phone 8 only. If Nokia Music was pre-installed on your device, or if you have already installed the Nokia Music app, you will be prompted to install the update via the updates section of the Store app.
