Here is a premature reaction story--BEFORE-- OMG It is like new years all over again, I just can't wait to be able to update... The friends deal will make this a very much anticipated set of things I looked forward too become a reality.

----Games will be added right?----

^ When your firmware updates, you'll see a "friends" option under your Social menu. It should look something like this:

Hmm, looks like the autoplaylists are making it back in basic form, not quite as in-depth and diverse as the options we had in the last release. I was hoping they'd do something fresh and new, but it looks like it's just an initial foray into the feature (at least I think). Last time they pinged the community it sounded like they were thinking about bringing the feature back even better than before. Oh well. Most of the core options are there that I'd use it for,. Though I love to toy with autoplaylists finding unique ways to listen to music.

Also, knowing this is now official (just read the press release) we now have a bit of an initial precedent on update schedules. Looks like we'll likely get two updates a year.  One during the Spring and one later in November when they usually announce new hardware. Things could change, but that's the assumption I'm operating under now.

A happy camper here! It looks like the folks at Zune HQ were actually listening to us all along.
This is really good news and it happens tomorrow not at some date to be named down the road.  Cool
I agree with "jerry800" and am not going to sit up all night waiting for it, but first  thing tomorrow morning, watch out!!! Grin

Just had a thought, this firmware update will also work on the 30? Right?
