Early last week we saw a few up and coming features of Microsoft’s next Windows Phone 7 update (Mango) leaked. Flip the calendar forward a week and we’ve got even more goodies to share compliments of the Windows Phone Dev Podcast.

In said group’s latest podcast, we’re told of several new features including Visual Voicemail, Facebook Chat (integrated with Windows Live Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger), “Office 365″ (plus SkyDrive and SharePoint), and a revamped Games hub that signals tighter Xbox Live integration. Other little gems include album art being displayed on the lockscreen while music is playing as well as an unnamed group messaging feature that combines Facebook Chat with many different services.

It’s all off the record information for now, but we’ll take it no less. Looks like Mango is shaping up to be quite the treat, no?
