This lab (36 min) explores the features of the Nokia Music (now MixRadio) API and shows you how to install and use the API. Steve Robbins, Chief Architect for Nokia MixRadio, describes how to code with the API to quickly add music features to existing apps, and demonstrates how to get music content into your app. It is recommended that you install the Microsoft Windows Phone SDK 8.0 to get the most out of this training lab.
