    Nokia music. So many genre's, mixes, flavors and tastes and they all can be downloaded for offline play. I finally just out of random started messing with it, and wow! You can livetile them and update offline mixes for your convenience too.

    I don't know how much of a hidden gem it is. Nokia talks about it quite a bit. Its all over their Facebook and their website. But I agree, its really good.

    Other than the offline mixes, what really separates this from Pandora? I'm not impressed.

    You are only allowed to download four mixes for offline playback and are limited to skipping tracks six times per hour. Each mix should contain aprox 50 tracks however so you will get a good amount of music.

    Unless I was doing something wrong, I wasnt impressed with the selection. I chose a band of a type of music I liked, and they created a playlist. The first several songs and then some didnt even feature the artist I liked. Often it wasnt exactly the same type of music either. Similar genre, but not the same.

    Pandora did this too when I used them a long time ago. But they atleast got the genre right, even if they didnt play a lot from the band I started with.

    It may be behind Pandora, but it's free and offers offline music without ads. Can't beat that for the price of free.

    I REALLY liked this and was impressed. I think I was mostly impressed because I expected nothing and got something good. I understand that Nokia hypes it, but a lot of companies hype their stuff, rarely are the 'no strings freebies' actually good.

    Nokia music is an awesome gem, the only reason I would consider it hidden it is only available on Lumia devices.

    i agree, it's pretty cool.

    i've only used it once so far and i think you can skip songs as much as you like as well. again, i didn't use it much but i skipped through like 5-8 songs without a problem.

    with pandora, you're only able to skip through maximum of 4 songs i think.

    Its a nice feature, started out really really liking it, but have found the mixes it auto-creates are not nearly as good as pandora creates. Pandora knows me, nokia music doesnt.. yet.

    Unless I missed it you can’t like or unlike songs like you do in Pandora. How will it get to know my music preference over time? I get the impression that it simply gives you a set of predefined selections per genres.

    That is what it does. No, it doesn't learn your taste like I wish. Maybe one day. Nice for free and really cant complain, but Im a much bigger fan of pandora at this point.

    Ok, Nokia music is just "meh". Metroradio is WAY better as you can do unlimited skips. Nokia music you're only allowed six an hour. Offline music...big deal. I mean seriously, how often do you find yourself where you don't have wifi or a signal? I guess if you flew a lot that would be an issue. Someone asked me what would impress me? If this was more like spotify desktop version, where you can listen to whatever you want (albeit with ads). Now THAT would be cool. Other than that, it's not any better than Pandora.

    Offline music is huge for some... On the plane, on the train (metro), or even just to save on your data plan.

    Unfortunately, we all aren't balling with unlimited data plans. And let me know where I can find the endless WiFi signal on my way to work

    Really like the service, will use it randomly and enjoy it! Just another great perk IMO.
    Rap songs are almost unlistenable because they are clean versions tho. Only gripe!

    I am not a music buff but Nokia Music made me one.
    I am one who don't like to select specific songs to listen to as its so predictable & boring, I much prefer to be amazed & surprised and sofar Nokia Music seems to get their selection right even though they are curated randomly. Love Nokia Music !!!
