New features have been surfacing which are rumored to be included in the next major update for Windows Phone 7. The new version should be called Windows Phone 7.5, codenamed ‘Mango’, and will feature several updates which utilize more Bing functionality. These are;

  • Bing Audio – music identification service similar to Shazam and Soundhound.
  • Bing Vision – barcode scanning and camera search functions, may be similar to Google Goggles.
  • Bing Maps – Turn by turn navigation options
  • Speech Recognition – built into text messaging application
  • Mutli-tasking support
  • new Podcast player

That’s a great list of new features! No word from Microsoft as to which if any of these additions are verified, but the sources leaks have been accurate previously, and no need not to trust now.
