Get access to a library of media content such as music and video clips by launching the client and entering the online store where you are able to procure over 10 million songs, stream the purchased content, listen to live music, etc. Profile registration is required.

It is important to look at this player, first because users can use it even if they dont have a Zune multimedia player, and second, because everything seems to indicate that Microsoft is devoting most of this work and love that the Zune software to Windows Media Player.

One of the most outstanding developments in the Zune Software 3.0 is the new view of MixView, which is just a visually appealing way to offer recommendations and help us discover new music.

The interface is now more attractive than the Zune 2.5. The window has shadows, the bottom of the player shows an animation that moves to the beat, and what's more interesting debuts a new hearing "Now Playing," which aims to compensate for the lack of displays offering a slideshow elegant and full of visual effects with photos and information about the artist that we are listening.

It has improved what was a major weakness of the previous version of the Zune software, the search for music.

We can also search by choosing an artist or song, then start writing immediately and get results instantly.

It incorporates a new listening by album feature, which we see only the covers to a size greater than normal, alongside a column with the songs on the album you select. There have also been improved automatic Playlists , which now allow us to introduce various artists and genres in the criteria (before we were limited to only one).
