In Short

MixRadio is a free music streaming service started by Nokia with an optional monthly subscription program. It is similar to Pandora, Xbox Music, and Spotify music services.

The service was formerly called Nokia Music, but it changed to MixRadio in November 2013.

MixRadio features playlists created by 'mixologists' who curate the collections. Users can use genre searches to find playlists and stream them to their mobile phone or Windows 8.1 computer.

Play Me creates personalized mixes based on your music collection.

MixRadio additionally features the ability to create mixes, concert information, artist notifications (of new content), an MP3 store and music player. Customers can also download up to four hours of mixes for offline usage.

MixRadio was exclusive to Lumia Windows Phone under Nokia. However, since Microsoft bought the mobile devices unit of Nokia, MixRadio was included in that purchase. Due to the redundancy of music services between MixRadio and Xbox Music, Microsoft sold MixRadio to LINE Messenger in late 2014.

On March 10, 2015, private beta versions of MixRadio for iOS and Android were released, signaling the broader intent of LINE to mainstream the music service.

MixRadio is no longer available for Windows 8.1 devices
