MixRadio, the music streaming service previously found only on Nokia Lumia before appearing on other Windows Phones and other Nokias, is now cross platform and available on iOS and Android devices.
The service allows you to choose from a selection of over 10,000 pre-selected mixes (10,409 according to the website currently) or create your own based on your preferred artists. You can select your favourite genres and artists and MixRadio will create mixes for you based on your likes, if you want to add more just heart tracks as you listen. You can even download up to 4 mixes for offline listening when you don’t have any internet connection.
The app is ad-supported by small adverts on screen and you only get a limited number of skips per hour, although as MixRadio say – if you are using all your skips then you are probably listening to the wrong mix, so choose another or heart some more songs that you do like. You can even buy and download songs including via iTunes on iOS.
MixRadio is owned by Line, the chat app company, and although there is currently no link between the two there is a connection to HTC’s BlinkFeed in the pipeline. It also plays well with Addidas MiCoach and Harman Kardon Omni speakers.
MixRadio is now available on mobile phones running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above, but may not work properly on tablets; likewise it will work on iPods and iPhones running iOS 8.0 or higher but not on iPads. It is available in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, UK, United States, Vietnam.
