Lumia owners who also happen to be music lovers will be happy to know that Nokia has officially launched its Nokia Music streaming service today, bringing free music to the Lumia 900 and 710 Windows Phones.
There are currently over 150 playlists available for streaming, all of which are "curated and kept up to date by an expert team of US based musicologists," according to Nokia. The playlists not only cover a wide range of musical genres, there are also celebrity playlists created by popular artists such as Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
Those users who are looking for something a little more personalized can also use the "create" function and have a playlist generated based on their favorite artists, with songs being pulled from a library of millions of songs.
Other features include the ability to pin playlists for offline listening and the "Gig Finder," which finds nearby concerts and shows based on the user's current location.
Free and Free
The Nokia Music service is not only free of charge, but is also advertisement-free and requires no registration or subscription. It is available now in the Windows Marketplace.
Nokia says that Nokia Music is a service "exclusive to Nokia Lumia handsets," but it only listed the Lumia 900 and Lumia 710 specifically when addressing which models can download the app from the Marketplace right now.
