Nokia Announces Music+ Service for Lumia Owners, Runs for $3.99 Per Month

If you subscribe to the Lumia platform—Nokia’s best-selling lineup—you get some pretty neat perks. But one that people might not necessarily know about, or even take advantage of, is Nokia’s sweet music streaming service exclusive to Lumia devices—and it’s getting a new cheap premium option.

The company recently announced that for just $3.99 per month (depending on your region), users will get features such as unlimited skips in radio-mode, lyrics, unlimited play-list downloads, higher quality audio, and desktop access when you’re at work. 

“It’s the only smartphone music service out there offering access to millions of songs out of the box without the need to sign up, sign in, or suffer adverts in between enjoying the music,” said Jyrki Rosenbuerg, VP Entertainment at Nokia.

The feature is set to roll out in a few weeks, Nokia said. It might not match up to something like Spotify, but for $3.99 per month, the price is certainly attractive for Lumia owners. One more reason to consider Nokia’s excellent Lumia 920—or even that upcoming true PureView Windows Phone we’ve been hearing so much about.
