Zune.net Going Down Tonight For Upgrades
Tonight at 10pm pacific time, Zune.net will be going down for some updates - the site is expected to be down for a houew hours. When it's back online, the following new features will have been added:
- Users will be able to follow an artist, getting news and updates about that artist
- RSS feed aggregation will allow users to add links to an artist page
- Performance improvements from distributed caching
- Enhanced Social data is exposed on the home page - a listening now module and additional recommended content
- Music video previews and concert dates will be available on Zune.net
That's a pretty decent list of upgrades to the Zune.net experience - though I do pretty much everything via the Zune software client, so I'm not sure how much I'll be using those features. Still, nice to see - hopefully there will be a Zune software client update that brings some of these features into the software.
