New Social Features Make Their Debut on


The Zune Team has updated today with several new interesting features. Their entire podcast catalog is now available to be browsed via and can be subscribed to. When you pick a podcast to subscribe to, it fires up the Zune software and adds it to your Podcast collection. Whatís even better though is all 12,000+ audio podcasts can now be streamed directly from using Silverlight. So if there is an audio podcast you may want to listen to but not necessarily subscribe to (or download to your PC) - you can give it a listen on Currently, audio podcast streaming is available to folks in the U.S.

Another new feature hitting is the ability to create music quizzes on your user profile. This allows you to quiz your friends with all your awesome music knowledge. You create the question and answers and people try to answer.

Zune Team member Jessica Zahn goes a little more in-depth on the new music quiz feature in this blog post.

Special thanks to Brian Seitz over on the Zune Insider for the heads up on todayís updates. Iím told the Zune Team isnít done making news this year so it will be very interesting to see what else they have up their sleeves.

If you havenít already, you should check out the Zune 3.0 software. It offers a unique music listening experience and is a great way to discovery new music. Give Mixview a spin. Because music is an important part of me, I am constantly living inside the Zune software or playing music off my Zune 80 here in the office writing blogs or posting to Twitter.

Psst, you can also use Mixview on too.
