The only Zune remote for Windows Phone out there has got a big update on Sunday. Zemote 2.0 fixes some important bugs, optimizes speed in a couple of areas and introduces some new features.
Zemote 2.0 introduces playlists the way it should be. You can browse your playlists on your phone and change the current playing list very easily with the Zune remote now. You can just start playing the list, or you can start playing it with a specific song.
In this update, the album view will work a lot smoother also and jump list is added, so you can easily jump to the albums instead of scrolling all the way down.
And here’s a short overview of all features offered by Zemote:
- Play/pause songs in Zune
- Play next/previous song
- Turn repeat and shuffle on/off
- Change volume or mute
- Browse your collection via albums, artists, songs or a custom search
- Rate songs in Zune
- Automatic PC discovery
- Zemote DJ: create a list of songs you want to hear next so you don’t have to change tracks all the time
- In the application bar you can always play/pause or skip tracks so you never lose basic control over Zune.
