Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” update will also feature Smart DJ mixes and a camera shutter sound toggle.


The two features were revealed on Monday by the Windows Phone Dev Podcast. The features are currently present in developer emulator builds of “Mango”. Microsoft is preparing to include Zune Smart DJ mix support. The feature allows users to discover new music and works alongside Zunepass to stream music to devices. Windows Phone owners will also be able to edit and save playlists on their devices. Microsoft is also adding in an option to disable the camera shutter sound in Windows Phone.
