Nokia Music app launched for Windows 8 and RT hardware

You may know Nokia Music as the resident DJ on many WP8 handsets, and now the app's looking to play sets at some larger venues. It's popped up on the Windows Store for Windows 8 or RT hardware, and looks pretty similar to the WP8 version, albeit formatted for bigger screens. It doesn't just serve as a front-end for accessing your personal music library -- you'll also find artist info, genre-specific mixes for online streaming and offline listening, as well as the option to create mixes of your own. The software will push tunes to compatible smart TVs or DLNA-equipped kit, and you can plug in your Nokia Music+ subscription details or check out the free seven-day trial for some extra features: better quality songs, unlimited skips and offline mixes, as well as synced lyrics where available. Currently, the app is only available in Australia, the US, the UK and Ireland, but will be coming to everywhere Music+ has launched over the "coming weeks." Windows 8 or RT users can head to the source link for the download. If you need us, we'll be off memorizing Bieber lyrics.
