Nokia Music coming to Android, iOS and desktop
Nokia Music is taking its web app cross platform, according to Pocket Lint. The service, which is already available on Nokia phones, and is pitched as the smartphone manufacturer’s answer to Apple iTunes, will soon be coming to Android, iOS, Mac and Windows.
Nokia Music offers subscribers the ability to save playlists and download tracks for offline listening. The service is also cheaper than Spotify or Deezer, costing just £3.99 a month.
Yet the news arrives at a strange time, following reports that Nokia’s Music service is due to shut down after its acquisition by Microsoft. Some rumours circulating online suggest Nokia’s service will soon cease to exist as a separate platform, and is expected to merge with Xbox Music instead. As such, there is no current indication when Nokia Music will be made available on other platforms.
According to Phone Arena, the Windows version of Nokia Music will be a native app and will support Windows 8/8.1 and Windows RT, which means it will not be a Nokia Lumia exclusive.
