A new update to the Nokia MixRadio streaming music app has been released and it removes the "Nokia" branding from the app in the latest such move by Microsoft to ditch older names from apps made by the team who used to work at Nokia.

That's really the only major change that can be immediately detected in the app. The MixRadio change log states that besides the branding shift, there are only bug fixes and performance improvements in this new 4.5 version.

The change in branding follows Microsoft altering the Nokia Care app name to Lumia Help+Tips last week. MixRadio is one of two streaming music services that Microsoft is now in charge of for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1. Xbox Music is, of course, the other one.

You can download the MixRadio app for free from the Windows Phone Store right now. What do you think of Microsoft getting rid of the Nokia name for the MixRadio app?
