What is Zune Software

Zune is a media management software for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7,  and Windows 8 (including 8.1) that functions as a full media player application with a library, an interface to the Zune Marketplace, and as a media streaming server. The software is used to sync with all devices with Zune functionality, including the Zune 4, 8, 16, 30, 80, 120, Windows Phone 7, and Microsoft Kin. Zune devices work exclusively with the Zune software and Marketplace. The Zune software applies many design principles of Microsoft’s Metro design language.

Where you can use Zune Software

Although it can still be downloaded from the Windows Phone website for use with syncing for Windows Phone 7 devices. Devices using Windows Phone 8 now use the Windows Phone App to sync files.
