Nokia Music is kinda awesome

by Volker Weber

   

   

I am playing around with lots of devices. That lets me try iTunes and Google Play. I get to upload my own music to mobile devices, I am using Spotify and Rhapsody. But I have yet to put my teeth into Nokia Music. Boy, did they have a bad start with Ovi, but now I am getting the hang of it.

What's important to know is: there is no sign-up.

Got that? No registration, no login, no monthly fee. Yes, there is a store, but you don't need to go there, if you don't want to.

   

What I have done here is upload a few Coldplay tracks. You can select by artist, album, let it play random, you know all that. But then it pulls in more information from the web. A photo album, the gigs the band is going to play.

   

And then you just go ahead and let it stream stuff from the web. So you get more songs than you have. It's kind of a radio. You can skip a song you don't like, until you hit your limit that the record companies allow until they think this is not a radio.

You don't have to upload any of your tracks. Nokia Music has lots of Mixes you can chose from. And you can just mark four of them to be available offline. And once you are online again, you can refresh them and get new songs on your phone.

   

And it kind of looks cool, doesn't it? Did I mention you are not paying a thing?

Agreed. I am using it several times a week and like it a lot. It is thought through to the end, like the ability to make mixes available offline and being able to simply refresh them.

Thanks for the great comments and very pleased that you are having fun with Nokia Music - I look after product marketing so posts like this are indeed music to my ears. Have you tried the Create function in Mix Radio? Just tap in three artists you like and we make a mix just for you based on and inspired by your choices. It is a great way to discover new music that is similar to what you already know or if you have friends with you to make a mix that will suit their tastes. Thanks again.
