Yesterday was an exciting day for the Zune Team. Their new Zune devices – the Zune 4, Zune 8, and Zune 80 – hit store shelves and they launched a brand new version of Zune.net now with your very own Social Profile (your Zune Card). The Zune Team also launched a new version of the Zune software – completely re-done and much improved. There is quite a bit of reviews on both the new devices and Zune software all over the web today. I’d like to call out the reviews by Featured Community member Jason Dunn over at Zune Thoughts. He’s got some fantastic videos up on the new devices and software worth checking out.
Brandon LeBlanc –I’d like to share a few things myself on the Zune software, the Zune 8, and the Zune Social web service.
First off, yesterday I created a video demo of the Zune software designed to give you a quick overview of what the Zune software offers. I shot the video yesterday hoping to get it up yesterday so when I say “today” I really mean yesterday. Take a look at the video:
That was just a quick overview. The Zune software is about you and your collection of music, videos, and photos. The new software also now supports the ability to subscribe to podcasts as well. For folks who record TV shows with Windows Media Center on Windows Vista (such as myself), the Zune software is able to take those videos and put them on your Zune device. One thing I’d like to stress is that even if you don’t own a Zune device, you can still download the Zune software to use with your music collection. You really need to check out the Now Playing screen 😉
