Microsoft’s monumental adjustments to Nokia are far from over as the company plans to expand the services of Nokia MixRadio. The music streaming service obtained by Microsoft through the acquisition of Nokia will be arriving on Android and iOS as a third party application.
Although the app will still come pre-loaded on Lumia Windows Phone handsets, the current exclusivity of the services to Windows Phone platforms will end.
In addition to the fact that consumers will be able to enjoy the music streaming application across platforms, the team behind the Nokia MixRadio app claims that it is also in their best interest to span their reach to other platforms. This will hopefully bring more success to the app as Microsoft has been receiving strong interest from potential investors around the world.
According to Nokia, the basic functionalities such as playing curated music and browsing for artists will remain free. Users can also pay a monthly fee to enjoy higher quality tracks, unlimited skips, and to store playlists locally. There are no indications of a launch date yet.
