Zune 4.8 adds Mango support, 48-hour movie rentals

updated 07:50 pm EDT, Tue August 23, 2011

Platform revamped for Windows Phone update

Microsoft has released an updated version of its Zune software that works as a companion utility for Windows Phone handsets and the company's media players. Version 4.8 is mostly focused on under-the-hood changes that bring support for the upcoming Windows Phone update, known as Mango. Users that have not kept up to date with their WP7 software will only need to click the update button once to install multiple updates.

The backup process has also been streamlined, with media separated from other phone content to help reduce backup times. The backup file is also more compact, while users have the choice to skip the phone backup step and update the phone if they do not have enough space on their computer drives.

Aside from the Windows Phone changes, the Zune software also brings support for 48-hour movie rentals and parental controls for M-rated content.
