A brief look at Bing Audio and Zune updates in Mango

The Windows Phone 7 Mango emulator continues to deliver, allowing us to have a peek at Bing Audio, the Shazaam-like service in Windows Phone 7, but also to see some new features in the Zune music player.

In the Zune player of note is that podcasts and apps are also searched when music is searched using the panorama interface, that the music controls have been moved to the top, that there are now shuffle and repeat controls on the side of the album, the presence of smart DJ and the ability to save a playlist.

Music can also be shared by emailing a link to the song in Marketplace. 

The controls brought up by the volume buttons are now much larger, and clicking on the name of the song now finally takes you to the currently playing song. Hopefully once the emulator is unlocked we will be able to see a lot more.

Thanks Chris again for the tip.
