I truly wish that MS would have just renamed the Zune services instead of starting over, or at least have walked across campus and talked to the people that developed it. XB Music/Video feel too empty in comparison. I've bought into the ecosystem, Surface, Xbox 360 (10 years XBL), WP7 now WP 8x, heck I even have a Zune Music/XBM subscription. But none of it works as well together as it did when it was just plain old Zune.
Maybe it's coming, and I hope it does soon. But it was already there. Seems to me like they just needed to create an RT (metro, Win8 experience or whatever) version of the Zune application. Heck the XBM/V apps are stored in c:\users\username\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ZuneMusic_8wekyb3d8bbwe.
I want the old Zune back or at least all of its features.

I am so glad I found out about this BEFORE I "upgraded" my phone!
won't until it happens!
I can't believe how they have written of their old, loyal customers like this.
Microsoft has really screwed up this time. They had a great user experience with the Zune HD, Zune desktop software,and Windows phone 7.
They only slightly screwed it up when they Changed it to X-box (this in my humble opinion was due to their failure to market Zune) For "brand recognition".
But now they have thrown the baby out with the bathwater.
I do not own an x-box, don't want to and cannot understand what a game play toy has to do with music.
I hope my wp7 don't break. Cause if it does I will loose access to thousands of songs that I have with my Zune pass and will have to go somewhere else. not to the cloud to eat up my data limit as This mess forces. And not to wp8.
I could go on ranting ad-nausium ...I am pissed! but I will wait and see what happens hope they fix it soon.

Then again, they want to make xbox a household name that defines entertainment with this certain approach. Me and you and i know others still have xbox inscribed deeply in our brains which we define as gaming.
Perhaps MS didn't bother to ask a few consumers to what xbox means to them.

I like the zune desktop interface, and preferred the old zune music on wp7 to xbox music on wp8. I like the music pass, but the application is frustrating to navigate and doesn't look as good as the zune player. Shoulda just changed "Zune" to "Xbox" and kept everything else the same...

I also want Zune back, My music, my media just synced fine... At least they could make it an OPTION as iOS users have iTunes, we should have Zune or Xbox music (what ever they are going to rename the app). Podcasts, Music, pictures were so much better with it...

You guys might be surprised that Zune is NEVER coming back and Microsoft believe Xbox Music will have everything Zune had plus more. This thread might be an interesting read from Microsoft support - Windows Phone 8 - an incomplete OS. But there is hope. (Xbox support.)

I know it's coming but, when and will WP8 support it ?

I think when people say they want "Zune" back they mean they want all the functionality that Zune had back. I don't think anyone seriously thinks that the Zune brand will return. I don't think anyone cares if the Zune brand returns. What they (and I) want is the 2 way sync, wireless sync, ratings, podcast management, video support, etc. to return. MS can call it anything they want.
