Last.fm is introducing a charge for the streaming functions in its mobile app . We had a chat with Matthew Hawn of Last.fm to find out what the change means.

The various versions of the mobile app stream a personalized music feed of your favorite music and related recommendations. Up until now, this has been free, but it will soon be chargeable. The ad-free subscription costs $3 a month.

The radio service will become a paid feature on February 15. The Web and desktop versions of the radio will still be free. It will also be free on Xbox Live and Windows Phone 7 phones. New subscribers also get a free trial, letting you stream 50 songs before you have to pay.
