For Nokia Lumia users who are also music lovers, there is good news. Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK) is going to launch Nokia Music, a free music streaming service. Music fans can stream music from a collection of more than 150 playlists, updated regularly by a team of expert musicologists based in the U.S. So there is something for every music lover, as the service covers all genres ranging from underground Detroit house tracks to New York philharmonic pieces. Additionally, playlists dedicated to global artists such as Lady Gaga and Rihanna are also available.
Music aficionados can also create their own sound tracks by using the service’s ‘Create’ function. The entire experience is hassle free: no registration and no subscription. There aren’t even any ads, so there is absolutely no disruption when listening to music. What’s more, Nokia Music playlists can be accessed offline too, say on a flight or even when commuting.

Consumers can also use Nokia Music’s ‘Gig Finder’ which can find the consumer’s exact location and pinpoint live concerts and shows taking place in that locality, taking the music experience to a new level altogether.
According to Jyrki Rosenberg, VP of Entertainment at Nokia, "The USA is the most vibrant and competitive digital music market in the world -- by a wide margin. We have worked extra hard to ensure our service meets the expectations of the demanding, active and inspired music fans in the USA. I would like to challenge everyone to try Nokia Music and see just how easy and enjoyable the service is to use."
Consumers using a Nokia Lumia 900 or a Nokia Lumia 710 can download the Nokia Music App at no cost from Marketplace.
There is also another announcement scheduled, that of the collaboration between Nokia Music, AT&T and Green Day, revolving around the band’s new album Uno. Green Day will perform an exclusive concert and also provide playlists to Nokia Music only for AT&T consumers.
