Zune’s desktop software has been updated to version 4.8. The update will allow Zune to communicate correctly with Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango).In version 4.8, they have streamlined the process to help get your phone up and running again faster with the latest features and fixes.

The update has the following features to make the update process go smoother and faster.

  • Progressive updates: In Zune 4.8, you only have to click the update button once for multiple updates. Once an update is finished, the software automatically checks for more and repeats the installation process until your phone is completely up to date.
  • Streamlined backup: By synching media separately from other phone content, we’ve lowered the overall time it takes to back up your phone. The backup file is also more compact, so it should take up less space on your computer.
  • Skip phone backup: If you don’t have enough room on your computer to store a phone backup file, you’ll now have the option to skip this step so you’re not blocked from updating your phone.

You can download the updated Zune software from here.
