Zune launches new service for Music, Video linking
Over the years, I’ve been stymied when I’ve wanted to link to an artist, album, playlist, podcast, or just about anything on Zune via the Web. Prior to this feature, there was just no way to link directly from the Web (a feature iTunes has had for some time). Thankfully, the Zune team has quietly launched their ZuneLinks service for sharing links to Zune Marketplace and Zune Social. So if you have a podcast to share or music you like, you can now link up.
My personal favorite, the Zune Social experience. The links take you directly to Zune Social where you preview the songs, see stats on listenership, read a review and more:
And a few podcast examples linking to marketplace:
Feature suggestions I’ve sent to the team:
- A Copy to Clipboard button
- <img border=”0″ .> 🙂
- Convincing the team (or an enterprising enthusiast) to develop an add-in for Windows Live Writer.
How would you improve the experience?
