Zune collection not updating

The net domain now redirects to Xbox's website, but the software retains the Zune name.

The Windows Phone App succeeded Zune Software as the desktop sync service for Windows Phone 8, as part of Microsoft's discontinuation of the Zune brand.

MSN Music was created in 2004 to compete with Apple's i Tunes services.

After only two years, Microsoft announced the closing of MSN Music in 2006 immediately before announcing the Zune service.

The first generation and later Zune devices included a number of social features, including the ability to share songs with other Zune users wirelessly.

Songs that had been transferred over wi-fi could then be played three times over three days.

Zune included a line of portable media players, digital media player software for Windows PCs, a music subscription service known as a "Zune Music Pass", music and video streaming services for the Xbox 360 game console via the Zune Software, music, TV and movie sales, and desktop sync software for Windows Phone.

Zune also provided music streaming for United Airlines inflight after a partnership in 2010.

Remaining Zune subscribers would be switched over to Microsoft's Groove Music platform.

Zune music and devices were follow-on to Microsoft's MSN Music service.

The Zune hardware players were discontinued in October 2011.
