R. I. P. MixRadio: a music streaming service will soon be closed
Music service MixRadio went to Microsoft following the deal with Nokia. In December 2014, after a series of rumors that Redmond allegedly not interested in this asset, given the presence of its own Xbox Music (which later turned into Groove Music), the software giant decided to sell its Japanese company LINE.
Today the current owner MixRadio announced its intention to close the service because it is no longer financially viable.
The first time the streaming service MixRadio existed under the name of Nokia Music was available exclusively to users of Lumia smartphones with Windows Phone. Subsequently the application was released on other mobile platforms.
In the official press release LINE says that after a thorough analysis of results and financial market problems streaming music company has determined the impossibility of further growth and have decided to stop working MixRadio. The closing will take place in the coming weeks.
