Nokia Music+ launches in UK for Lumia owners

Late in January, Nokia announced plans to launch an upgraded version of its free Nokia Music service for owners of its Windows Phone Lumia smartphones. Now the new Nokia Music+ has gone live in the UK, the first of what will likely be many more countries that will be able to access the service.

As promised, WPCentral.com says that the service is pretty cheap at £3.99 a month. For that very small amount, users 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 free service. There's also a way to download the tracks via WiFi to conserve mobile data traffic.

It also 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, there are plans to offer web-based access to Nokia Music+, along with Windows 8 and RT apps. Nokia also offers a seven day free trial of the new music service.

So far there's no word when Nokia Music+ will made its debut in the US, but Nokia says it will just charge $3.99 a month when it goes live.
