Nokia has rebranded its popular Nokia Music app, which is now called Nokia MixRadio.
The updated version of the app is now available for a free download on the Windows Phone store
, but is available exclusively for Nokia Lumia users.
Nokia MixRadio will give users access to over 18 million songs through this no-advertisement, free music service.

Earlier this week, we reported
about leaked images of Nokia Music for iOS and Android. Since the company has retained its brand name for Nokia MixRadio, it is possible that Nokia could consider introducing its popular applications on other operating systems in the future.
