More Windows Phone 7 Mango features revealed: SmartDJ and Notifications sounds support

A few more Windows Phone 7 Mango features have just been revealed today by the Windows Phone Dev podcast. I think that many user will be delighted to learn that the Zune SmartDJ feature is now support in the OS and that we can now “officially” turn-off the camera shutter sound! It is currently a pain to achieve this because lowering the device’s volume usually doesn’t disable the camera shutter sound (it’s quite random though, sometimes it works..).


Mango is shaping up to be a huge release and I sincerely hope that other annoying issues are also being fixed (Camera settings…).

    Isn’t there some law where phone cameras have to make a shutter sound? Interesting.

     Yup but not in all countries I think. But AFAIK most phones/smartphones give the users the option to turn-off the shutter sound. You can do it in WP7 by setting the volume to 0 but this usually never works (bug? feature? one thing’s for sure though..it’s f… annoying…)

    Even if you can’t turn off the shutter sound, you can always suppress the sound by calling your voice mail and then taking the picture.
