Finally, Nokia Music, the free music streaming service from Nokia has arrived in UAE. The service already available in a number of countries worldwide will be available for Nokia Lumia users, free of cost.
A number of area specific music is available for consumers and it will include local Arabic labels like the Meloday, Mazzika and the Qanaat in addition to the Bollywood’s T series, Eros featuring artists like Rashed Al Majed, George Wassouf, Myriam Fares, Mohamed Abdo etc. The music streaming service would be ad free like in many other countries and would also allow users to download the songs in case they are going out for a long trip and they do not have an unlimited data plan.
The Vice president of Nokia Middle East, Mr. Tom Farrell added,
“Nokia Music is great for discovering new music as it’s the only smartphone music service out there offering access to millions of songs out of the box without the need to sign up, sign in, or endure adverts in between enjoying the music. Today we also launch as part of this service a premium feature – Nokia Music Plus with ability to skip unlimited tracks and cache all the playlists offline.”
With Nokia Music finally available in UAE, consumers can even create custom playlists based on their favorite artists and songs. Expanding its free music streaming service to UAE would have been a hard job for the company as their music tastes are quite different from other countries. To this, Mr. Farrell added,
“The UAE is a melting pot of different cultures. This is why we have ensured that we are offering a diverse collection of music that suits people’s different tastes covering Arabic, Bollywood and international music. We have worked extra hard to ensure our service meets the expectations of the inspired, demanding, and active music fans in the UAE.”
In order to enjoy this free service, Nokia Lumia owners can head over to the app store to download the Nokia Music app and start enjoying their free Music. Along with UAE, Singapore users too have something to cheer. Reports suggests that Singapore users finally have the option to upgrade to the premium version of the Nokia Music streaming service i.e. Nokia Music plus. The upgrade would only cost you about $7 per month but will give you a number of extra features like the ability to skip unlimited tracks on the mix radio, getting lyrics while you listen to the song, higher quality audio perfect for streaming and listening from your home theater system etc.
