Nokia updates Music app for Windows Phone, adds operator billing support

Nokia Music

Nokia has rolled out an update for its Nokia Music app for Windows Phone. The popular solution enables Lumia Windows Phone owners to enjoy a large selection of mixes, spanning across multiple genres of music. Available in numerous markets, the manufacturer continues to support its hardware with more advanced software offerings.

This new release, hitting version 3.10.822.0 introduces mobile operator billing support, numerous bug fixes and the ability to scan the local library to update the personal music profile. We especially like the new features as this version not only helps open up the premium subscription to more consumers, but it provides more options to personalise the experience.

It's worth noting that operator billing is supported in select markets. You can download Nokia Music from the Windows Phone Store (listed for Windows Phone 8 only). Thanks to everyone who tipped us!

Nokia updates Music app for Windows Phone, adds operator billing support


Did you have to set something up on atts website because mine says to do that but its not very clear where..

I don't recall doing anything. I was getting ready to pay for the Pro Shot app with a credit card, which would have been (and was) my very first paid app purchase when I noticed the AT&T logo on the payment screen. That was a couple weeks ago, and I've since bought a few apps this way.
That was apps.. I don't know if this Nokia Music update just enabled it or what, but now I can buy albums at the store and have it charged to my phone bill?? Oh man, this is going to get me in trouble!

Useless for me. I can't access Nokia Music Store or Mix Radio etc. because I bought my phone from another country. Stupid Nokia won't fix this thing.

Why is that Nokias fault Sarim? There are licensing rules. Contact Nokia and figure out a solution. While youre at it, don't whine, customer service at all companies hate whiners.

I have been asking customer support but there's no solution. Further, I'm going abroad for my studies, so does that mean I have to buy a new phone wherever I go? They can give us an option to access the store of the current region.

There will be a solution sarim. Have you tried forums? Which country is your phone registered to? And which market are you trying to access?

Well, I bought my phone from UAE and I'm presently using it in India. All my account and phone region settings are set to India. I don't wanna change my phone region settings, it messes up other settings like Store etc. I have tried Nokia Discussions Forums. I have also chatted with a customer service representative of Nokia.

Your phone has to THINK it is in UAE. So changing country settings wont work on its own. Make it connect to UAE internet using proxies. Then make Nokia music activate. Once it has done so, disable proxy. Make sense?

Is it a one time process or I have to do it everytime I launch Nokia Music? Could u plz email me or message me here (in my private message inbox) with a detailed how to?

Lol what do they mean by selected operators ?? Im guessing tht means from which Microsoft has expanded too ?

Windows Phone doesn't need a zillion apps . We have quality apps not some malwares that eat your phone's battery and resources and demand internet connection all the time.

We don't have major apps such as games like Subway surfer , temple run 2 , temple run 1 only for 1 GB ram,
Swiftkey keyboard , Opera . Firefox.Paytm , mobikwik for Indians and the list goes on and on.
I don't see any improvement either.

You are speaking in aganist of Windows phone and at the same time you are supporting them too ?
What's wrong with you buddy ?

I hope nokia increases the performance for the lower end devices in the next update..it's extremely slow and painful to use on my beloved 720 !! :(

I meant increasing the performance of the nokia music player ..takes at least 6 seconds to open the nokia music app unlike the default music app which instantly opens

Big fan of Nokia music but I wish they would update and allow mixes to be saved to SD card in the same way they updated storage to allow maps to be saved to the SD card. With an 820 I can't really exploit the app with my premium account, two or three mixes and the app plus data runs to almost a gig.

YES!  This is what I've been wanting.  I was hoping the update to storage check would allow mixes to be saved to SD.  

Also, has anyone else noticed that the mixes on nokia music kinda sucks?  I hear the same songs over and over and over again.  It's like each playlist gets 50 songs, and then it just repeats them every time.

AccentAE86, your right! I've noticed the app's cache is never refreshed resulting in constant replays! Saves on bandwidth but disappointedly really scrimps on variety. I have a Premium account but it doesn't seem commensurate with tapping into the millions of possibilities. Thinking of defecting to XBox.

Fortunately I dont live in the glorious country of united states of america, so Nokia Music shows me a friendly middle finger when I want to install it. I am not really depressed, as it was in like '97 or so when I bought my first and last CD, because my father bought our first Hifi with CD player. Since that time I didnt give a single cent to the infinite-greedy jewish media empire. I rather go to concerts, where the ticket money goes more directly to the artists, rather than to those parasites.

My main reason for using this instead of the default "Music + Video" app was because the artist search included "contributing artist" info, so I could quickly find tracks on various artists albums, but this has changed with Monday's update. Disappointing.
