Naxos for Mobile Devices

Use the Naxos app to listen to personal course playlists on your phone or search the Naxos catalog for more tracks. To get started:

1) ON YOUR PHONE: Download the Naxos application from your phone's app store (iTunes Store & Google Play). Note that there are different apps for the classical Naxos Music Library (NML) and the Naxos Music Library Jazz (NML Jazz).

2) ON YOUR COMPUTER: Create a Naxos student/member playlist account login.

3) ON YOUR E-MAIL: Confirm the registration e-mail by clicking on the link sent by Naxos

4) ON YOUR PHONE: Open the app (not the website) and use the Naxos login you just created (not your UNR NetID)


  • Find your personal playlists under "Student Playlist"
  • Search the full catalog and browse new music using the icons on the bottom of the screen
  • LOG OUT WHEN FINISHED! Missing this step means that folders will not update!


​Members of the UNR community can log in to Naxos to search for tracks and listen to course playlists.

To begin creating private playlists, users must register with Naxos for a Student / Member Playlist Account.

Creating a Student or Member Playlist account Login:

  • Go to UNR's Naxos portal (login with your UNR NetID if off-campus).
  • Click on "playlists" in the menu bar.
  • Click on "Login/Sign Up" link, then fill in personal information.
  • Confirm the registration e-mail from Naxos.

If you do not see "" anywhere in your permalink, paste this entire prefix at the beginning of your permalink URL:
