The latest version of Nokia Music is out now for your downloading pleasure. The Music team have been busy creating even more ways to enhance your listening experience, this time adding notifications and favourite artists to the mix. We had a word with two of the guys behind the service, Martin Banham and Daniel Roberts, to give us the low-down.
“These latest features are designed to take you closer to the music you love, with notifications whenever there’s something new happening for one of your favourite artists.”
You can now ‘like’ your favourite artists to further personalise your music experience. Nokia Music will also like artists based on your playing history and the contents of your music library. Notifications are the payoff here: you’ll get a notification the moment one of your favourite artists releases any new music.
We know how frustrating it can be when a gig sells out before you’ve even heard about it. That will become a thing of the past with gig notifications. Nokia Music will let you know as soon as any new gigs are announced, so you can pick up your ticket and smugly sit back and wait for the big day to arrive.
To get the full experience, pin Nokia Music to your Home Screen and enable Live Tile notifications. Then, as well as showing you the beautiful artwork for your recently played tracks, you’ll also receive an alert whenever there’s news.
Along with these new features Nokia Music is still rocking with our mixes cooked up by our mix masters. The guys are really proud of this release, but as you’ve seen, it only gets better.
This update is available to all Nokia Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8 and will be available via the Windows Phone Store from today.
