Zune 4.0 Software Now Available for Download
Written under: Lifestyle, Music, Technology
Microsoft’s free Zune 4.0 software is now available for download. This goes well with the Zune HD officially going on sale today.
The new Zune 4.0 software is updated to be fully Windows 7 optimized, which means it supports Windows 7 Jump Lists. There’s also previews that lets you glimpse and control media by hovering your mouse over the Zune button on the Taskbar, and Aero Snap auto-resizing of the Zune software window.
What else is new?
- Quickplay menu: quick access from your Zune HD to your favorite media including most recently added or played
- Smart DJ: Like Apple’s Genius, it creates like-minded music mixes. It also adds music from the Zune Marketplace if you have a Zune Pass.
- Mini Player Mode: A mini version of the player on top of your PC apps
- Download to own: You can download-to-own or rent full movies and TV shows in SD or HD formats.
The Zune 4.0 software can be downloaded for free here.
