Microsoft New "Mango" Update Overview for Developers [Video]

Microsoft has revealed something about their new Mango OS Update for WP7 Phones. They gave an complete introduction about this update at MIX Developers Conference. Almost all of it's features have been discussed in this video. Mango update for Windows Phone 7 is way better than their old WP7 OS. It have brought some really great new features to the Windows Phones. Including multitasking, background audio, push notifications, raw sensor data and even much more.

For the new developer tools and platform, we asked ourselves – and many of you – what developers want most. We heard loud and clear the desire for the ability to create apps and games that addresses new scenarios with things like Web, Augmented Reality and messaging. We also heard that developers love the fact that their apps are tightly integrated into the OS and that they want even more visibility and access. We took that feedback, went to work on the next set of tools and here’s what we came up with:

We are empowering developers with new capabilities that enable new app scenarios, such as;

  • “Multitasking” meets Integrated Experiences with Live Agents: Superior customer engagement with real time interactions via Live Tiles, Push Notifications, Deep Linking and Background Agents. Multitasking is also enhanced to allow for fast applications switching, as well as background audio and file transfer.
  • Phone Integration has been greatly improved for developers looking to enable their applications to do more with their apps. The Live Tiles, Extras and push notifications functionality has been expanded to give developers more flexibility to engage with their customers.
  • Developers will also have access to the Motion Sensor library and the camera, enabling amazing augmented reality experiences. The integration extends deeper into the operating system via sockets and database access now available to apps and games.
  • Specific to the refreshed Windows Phone Developer Tools that arrive in May, we’ve also added;
  • A new profiler and emulator for testing
  • Support for Silverlight AND XNA in the same project
  • Structured storage that enables access to SQL database
  • Access to calendar and contacts through apps
  • And much more
  • Developers will be able to take advantage of all of the above when tools arrive in May.
