Microsoft kicked off a new blog series this week, detailing what’s new across its web experiences. The inaugural post covers what’s new in Edge this month, along with some updates on other Microsoft apps under the web experience banner.
Most notable for Edge is an additional feature for Collections. With the latest version of Edge stable, you’ll be able to send collections directly to OneNote in the desktop and mobile apps. The “Send to OneNote” option joins Word, Excel, and Pinterest, and itretains all of the web formatting.
Lastly for Edge, the built-in PDF reader now has a highlighter tool and screen reader support.Microsoft has also opened up encrypted sync to “additional Microsoft 365 educational accounts.” Students, teachers, and staff will be able to securely ensure their favorites, passwords, extensions, and collections stay in sync with Edge when signed in with an Azure Active Directory school account.
Finally, the Microsoft News app for Windows 10 has received a little love this month as well. There’s now a live tile for the Start menu, along with a dedicated “Video Hub” accessible from the side navigation menu. Coming soon, Microsoft also plans to release a “Compact Stories view,” which condenses headlines, top stories, and trending topic in a glanceable way.
Microsoft says it plans to release these blog posts to highlight what’s new in Edge, Bing, and MSN around every six weeks to coincide with new Edge stable releases.
