At an event in New York City today, Microsoft announced more features for the upcoming Mango release of Windows Phone 7. Microsoft has added hundreds of new features to the platform, but focused on a few key areas. For example, it targeted better use of communications and added the ability to thread multiple different communication types (email, SMS, IM) by contact so you see all the messages from one person in one thread, no matter the type of message used. Mango adds support for groups, so users can bunch together groups of family, friends, etc. Other new messaging features include deeper social network integration across apps, the ability to link multiple inboxes, as well as support voice actions and voice dictation for messaging. Microsoft also targeted improving the application ecosystem and performance. For example, users can see apps in search results and hubs such as Music, Videos and Pictures. App Connect works with Marketplace, so results include both apps already on the phone and new apps to download. Mango supports improved live tiles, which Microsoft says are more dynamic and can provide more information. Other improvements made to Mango include the addition of IE9 for browsing, improved Bing search and "Local Scout" for better local search results. Mango will be available to all Windows Phone 7 devices this fall.
