Nokia has launched a new version of its music app for desktop and tablet version of Windows 8 designed to allow Nokia Music subscribers share their music across multiple devices.

Additional screens provide access to artist information, recent mixes and more as users swipe through the app.

"With Windows 8/ Windows Phone 8 sharing the same development kernel, we were able to create the core experience true to the mobile app, and very quickly." Nokia's head of music, Mike Bebel told the company's own blog.

"It carries the same look and feel that people enjoy with the Windows Phone app, but brings it to larger screens with high quality rich media that encourages people's journey of discovery - a great example being recommendations for more music right on the player screen."

Nokia Music for Windows 8 is available now from the Windows 8 Store in the UK, US, Ireland and Australia, and will be rolling to all counties with Nokia Music+ in the coming weeks.
