    More Mango features uncovered: in-browser audio streams, Xbox Live voice chats, and more (video)

    While we wait (rather impatiently, we might add) for Mango to make its official debut others are still playing with test builds, pouring over code, and digging up interesting tidbits about Microsoft's mobile OS update. That WP7 will be getting improved HTML5 support is nothing new but, that it will specifically support in-browser audio and continue to stream even if you navigate away from the browser or lock the screen, is music (literally) to our ears. Snippets discovered in a recent Mango dump have also turned up mentions of Xbox Live Voice chat, parties, multiplayer gaming, and tighter integration with the 360 for pushing Live content to your big screen. If you hit the WPSauce source link you'll find a whole host of other fascinating things in the WP7 code, and some details about just how deeply Facebook will be tied to the OS. But, before you go, check out the video of the HTML5 audio support in action after the break.

    The first thing was announced already If I remember correctly. Is the Xbox one means I can hear voice messages on my phone? And I can send them etc...?

    I am so excited. I can hardly read the comments on Engadget though. So much hatred spewed by people who have never used WP and have no intention to use it, yet act like they know all about it.

    I just finished reading through them also. I sorta see a lot of people defending the OS, and a lot of the comments, especially the ones with high rankings, are very positive.

    Don't worry, those are just Symbian/Meego fans that are really angry at Nokia's decision. Everytime Engadget makes a unfair article against WP7 or just make a joke. Most people call them out.

    I just saw the artist art on the home screen on pcnow.com in action. It made me smile, seeing that I use my WP7 most of the day for music!
