Updated Zune Music Player and Artist Lockscreen Demoed on Video

I was hoping to see some of the changes made to the “Music + Videos” hub on Mango during the presentation, but that did not materialize, however, Tom Warren of Winrumors has posted a few demonstration videos of the new features and the upgraded Zune music player is one of them.

Notice the playback controls are now above the albumn art and the like, repeat and shuffle controls seem to be along the right-side of the albumn art.

SmartDJ, a fantastic Zune feature, is also demoed on the video. SmartDJ basically aggregates music similar to your chosen artist by either pulling from your local music on the device or by using Microsoft’s huge music catalog if you are a Zune Pass subscriber. I used this feature often with my Zune HD when I wanted to start listening to music and didn’t want to fool with choosing songs. It’s a great playlist creator.
