Windows Phone 7 'Mango' update will bring many new features
Microsoft has revealed some of the new features coming with the Windows Phone 7 "Mango" update, and WP7 users should be excited for them.

Users will get native podcast support, turn-by-turn voice direction in Bing Maps, voice-recognition SMS, Bing Vision and Bing Audio (like Shazam/SoundHound/MusicID).



Bing Audio will be integrated right into Bing search, and will work just like similar products. Press a button while you are listening to a song you want to remember or buy (or don't know) and the service will connect you to a match.

The US, Great Britian, France, Italy, Germany and Spain will be the first with Bing Audio support.

Bing Vision is a camera-based search app, that will read barcodes, MS Tags, QR codes and text through OCR.
