Nokia Music+ launches for US Lumia owners

A few days ago, Nokia launched its new Nokia Music+ premium service in the UK, and now there's word that US owners of Lumia smartphones that use Windows Phone can access the service as well.

Engadget reports that the service has gone live in the US and is now available for $4 a month. For that amount, Lumia owners can get unlimited downloads of songs which Lumia owners "can swap as you wish." It also provides users a way to download higher quality music compared to the already available free Nokia Music service. There's also a way to download the tracks via WiFi to conserve mobile data traffic. Finally, Nokia Music+ has unlimited skipping of tracks and a way to view the lyrics to the songs on the service.

In addition to the Lumia app for Windows Phone 8 devices, Nokia has revealed plans to offer web-based access to Nokia Music+, along with Windows 8 and RT apps. So far there's no word on when those apps will become available. There's also no information when Nokia Music+ will made its debut in other countries around the world, but we suspect it won't be too much longer.
