Nokia seem to have released the Nokia Music+ app for Windows 8 (and Windows RT) today. It is essentially the WP8 app, but translated to Windows 8 UI the way I think WP apps should be. To use this app, you need to have a Nokia Account with Nokia Music+ subscription, otherwise you’ll have limited features, such as Standard Quality audio, 30sec only for each song in the mixes, no lyrics etc.

I haven’t seen an official release about this from Nokia but below is the description from the app entry in Windows Store.

Along with a live tile, and the ability to download offline mixes, see lyrics, create your own mixes, play your music etc, you can also allow the app to customise your Lock Screen with the current artist. When the track changes, you get a notification style alert telling you what song is now playing.

Update: Dean from Nokia Music clarified the apps availability, stating that the app is currently available in Australia, the US, UK and Ireland, with a continued rollout to all countries currently with Nokia Music+ in the coming weeks.

 

Its an extremely functional app, and I currently have a quick look demo uploading have uploaded a quick look of the app.

    This. Is. Really. Cool.

    Exactly what I’ve been looking for! This gives the competition of Xbox Music vs Nokia Music a nice twist, for Nokia :)

    Although the app does not seem to be in the store here, in the Netherlands.

    Sorry Michael , but which section in the Windows store is it? I live here in Melbourne Aus and I can’t find it.

  4. stylinred says:

    I’ve got the app but it doesn’t seem that robust.. looks kind of dreary

    • stylinred says:

      okay never mind, they need to make a button to sign in instead of having to have the subscription banner popup before you can sign in

      • Paul Tutton says:

        There is a ‘button’ to sign in, we are using standard Windows 8 behaviors. Swipe out the side charm, ‘Settings’ – you should see a ‘Sign In’ link

        Hope that helps

      If they are going to do it, they better wait for Haswell/BayTrail .. or even use AMD Temash.

      Non of that ARM/Windows RT stuff…
