MixRadio to suspend in-app music purchases in March

In an email sent out to users today, the team behind the popular Lumia-only music streaming app MixRadio said that it will be dropping support for purchasing music through the app in March.

From the MixRadio team:

"From March 2015 we'll be suspending all operator billing and credit/debit card payments.

This means you won't be able to purchase any new tracks or albums from our music store. Not to worry though, you'll still be able to listen to all your purchased music and you can enjoy 100's of mixes available for free with MixRadio."

A reason for the change wasn't given, but it likely has something to do with Line's acquisition of the service from Microsoft in December. However, it sounds as though purchasing options may return to the app in the near future, as the team mentions that it paid downloads are being suspended in preparation for new features set to roll out in an update later this year.

Are you a MixRadio user who has purchased a lot of songs through the service? Let us know what you think of the change in the comments below.
