Zune Social Update
Microsoft today updated its Zune Social service to include new features and fixes for those using the company's new media players. A new feature, called Gadgets, lets users share the information from their Zune profiles on other websites such as forums; like the profile pages themselves, it includes a glance at recently played songs, including album art and a link to the Zune Marketplace. Songs tagged as favorites either on a Zune device or the software will also show up in a profile as well as a user's top-ranked artists across their whole play history.
Other fixes are said to include a much longer list of 24 recent songs (up from 5) with timestamps for each track, an easier way to remove friends from a social list, and more detailed information about songs and albums sent as recommendations across the service. The updates are automatic for every Zune owner with an account and should be available immediately.
