Microsoft Edge makes it easier to share web pages between devices
Microsoft has begun to roll out the latest public version of Edge, which provides a convenient feature for those who use the browser on multiple devices. With tab sharing, you can start reading web pages on your computer and then send them to your laptop or smartphone. After preliminary testing of the feature in April, it can now be used on certain Windows and macOS devices, as Windows recently pointed out.
After accessing this feature, you will see a new laptop and smartphone icon in the address bar. Clicking on it will display a list of devices where you have Edge installed, and you are logged into the same Microsoft account. On Android and iOS, any link you send will appear in the prompt, which you can access through the notification tray. At the same time, on Windows, they will be displayed in the action center. Judging from the current situation, this feature seems to be still under development. To use it on a mobile device, you need to install the canary version of Edge on your phone, and Microsoft seems to be slowly rolling it out to Windows and macOS users.
It is too late for Microsoft to add tag sharing in Edge. These two browsers and Firefox already include a way, because sending tags between Safari devices in 2019 includes Apple’s iCloud tags for several years as well. Whether it is late or not, it is still a valuable tool included in the browser. If you update to the latest version of Edge and don’t see tab sharing immediately, please be patient, as it may take a few days for Microsoft to roll out it more widely.
