Nokia Music launches as subscription app on Windows 8, RT
Nokia has released its first Windows 8 and Windows RT app, one that originally launched on the manufacturer's Windows Phone line of devices. <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282716==http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-US/app/nokia-music/4e9de0ba-ed72-4ffc-866d-cf964def6ddf" rel='nofollow'>Nokia Music</a> brings the same streaming radio subscription service as its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282717==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/28/unlimited.mix.downloads.included.song.lyrics/" rel='nofollow'>phone-based counterpart</a>, but in an app scaled up to work on a full-sized desktop computer screen, or Windows RT tablet. <br />
<br />
The Windows 8 version offers the same basic functionality as it does on the phone. Users can use it to listen to music stored in the My Music, as well as listen to various mixes curated by Nokia and various musical artists. <br />
<br />
Mixes can be recommended based on music being played, a combination of artists, or even just searching for mixes containing individual artists. Mixes can also be saved for offline listening, while the extra space allows for more information on singers and bands, including Twitter updates, gigs, biographies, and high-resolution photographs. The player can be snapped to the side, providing minimal music controls, and streams can be played on DLNA devices on a local network. <br />
<br />
Mixes on Windows 8 are available to subscribers of Nokia Music+ in the US, UK, Ireland, and Australia, according to a company <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282718==http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/04/05/nokia-music-strikes-a-chord-on-windows-8/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">blog</a>, with other countries being added in future. Current subscribers of the Nokia Music+ service on a phone can use their existing log-in details to use the service at no extra charge, and new users can try out a 7-day trial. <br />
