Goodbye Nokia Music, hello Nokia MixRadio

Easily more so than any other Windows Phone OEM, Nokia loves bringing its users a lot of premium software, and we’ve seen Lumia owners enjoy a whole lot of Nokia’s efforts, like HERE maps or City Lens. Today we’re looking at Nokia Music – or, at least, what used to be Nokia Music, as the company delivers a new update alongside a full rebranding, now dubbing the service Nokia MixRadio.

By and large, it’s still the same Nokia Music with which you’re familiar, delivering streaming radio from over 150 playlists and featuring 18 million-some songs. Besides the new name and a fresh look, though, there are a few changes to the app itself: you’ll find a new personalized Play Me mix, there are now thumbs up and down buttons to teach the app what you like, and it gets support for sharing mixes over social media. As before, it’s free to use normally, or you can upgrade to a premium edition for four bucks a month.

While the new app’s available now, Nokia’s holding a launch event in New York City for Nokia MixRadio tomorrow morning. If you’re interested, Nokia’s got the details for that up on its Facebook page, which you can visit through the source link below.
