Camera and Music are the two greatest strength of Windows Phone-powered Nokia smartphones. And we love the fact that significant changes are introduced with every update. Nokia Music, music service which is (almost) free has now been updated, or rather, rebranded. The service will now be called Nokia MixRadio.
With this update, you can enjoy a subscription-free music on your device and you don't have to punish yourself by listening to advertisements. You will also be able to refine the mix in the app according to your listening preferences. This is similar to features that we have recently seen in other music services like Spotify, Pandora, and Google Music. The more you listen, the better the app will get at suggesting, Nokia said.
The user interface has been completely revamped and Nokia also said that various bugs, detected in the previous version, have been removed.
The update also allows you to share your own mixes with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, email or even by SMS.
However, there's a slight catch - the service is not completely free. You can create four playlists and enjoy eight hours of free offline music without any ads. However, if you want more, paying $3.99 per month will let you have unlimited downloads, unlimited skips and even better sound quality.
