Lumia’s Mix Radio On The Nokia N9

One of the hottest features found on Nokia’s Lumia range of Windows Phone is Mix Radio. The free music service, where you can listen to a huge number of songs from a large selection of genres. It is available to consumers on a kind of Radio license where they can skip past songs a limited number of times each hour.

What doesn’t seem to get as much attention is that on the Nokia N9 a very similar feature has been available since it was launched.

Accessing it is very simple, click onto the Music Store, and at the top of the screen in a blue box you’ll see Nokia Music. This gives identical music selections as those found on Mix Radio, just underneath this box is a bar which says Genres.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Selecting the genre of music you wish to listen to will bring up a play list, the songs you can skip through up to 5 times an hour.

 

If the song playing is available for download in your region/country, then rather than the “i” for information symbol, you’ll see a price for which you can download that individual tune.

Unfortunately, the playlists aren’t available to be downloaded for offline listening as with the WindowsPhone offerings, but I still think this is a feature worth more coverage than it seems to get.

So, are you already a user of Nokia Music playlists on the N9? Where you already aware of this feature. I would be keen to hear from you in the comments section. I strongly recommend trying this out.

    It only seems to allow you to preview the song, not play it in it’s entirety, so not sure how this is like Mix Radio.

    Cheers.

      Ah I see it now, how about that, the sequence of songs doesn’t seem to match the listing of songs you see before you got into the radio.
      Apart from not being able to d’load them, I wonder how else it differs from the WP equivalent…

    Do you notice that?
