Nokia has announced its upcoming subscription-based Music+ app, which will be coming within the next few weeks. The video below has been released, which demonstrates some of its features. The subscription is €3.99/$3.99 a month (also rumored to be $3.99/month for those in the US), and it will give you unlimited offline caching of stations, unlimited skips, higher quality over wifi, and lyrics.
•Unlimited skips. Whether you like to skip from track to track, or just want extra control over what you hear. There’s no stopping you with Nokia Music+.
•Unlimited downloads. The free service allows you to download up to four Mixes (each of which contains hours of music) and play them without an Internet connection. The paid service removes this limit – you can download a massive supply of offline music you can swap as you wish.
•Higher quality. We were surprised by the high quality of streaming music from Nokia Music, even over a 2.5G connection. Nokia Music+ allows you to download music at eight times the existing quality. Plus, you can set rules to only download high quality when you’re on WiFi, for example.
•Lyrics. Words to the songs you’re listening to, right on your Nokia Lumia. Either in a scrolling list, Karaoke-style format, or a display you can scroll up and down.
So far, it looks like they’ll be releasing it for Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Windows RT, along with web-friendly HTML5 version.
