Microsoft has announced an update for Collections which includes an “inspiration feed” that’s quite similar to what Pinterest already offers. The latest upgrade makes it easier to organise and share information right from your Edge browser. Let’s have a look at all the new features offered in the new update.
New Features For Microsoft Edge Collections
Microsoft is rolling out a new “inspiration feed” feature, which sounds quite similar to Pinterest. With this function, you will not only be able to view your Collections folders, but also see a feed with related content. Again, similar to Pinterest, it gets a Visual Search option. For instance, if you find an interesting-looking white chair online, you can hover over that image and you will see the Visual Search icon. Clicking on it will search for the image on the web, perhaps offering you options from where you can purchase the item.
With the latest update, Microsoft makes it convenient to save images and videos as you surf the web. You will be able to add media content to Collections by simply hovering over or right-clicking the content on the webpage and clicking the add button. Edge will also get a collaboration feature which will allow you to share your collections.

The tech giant is also rolling out a feature which will allow you to follow content creators on websites such as YouTube and TikTok. While this option will be limited to a few websites in the beginning, Microsoft promises to add more sites in the future. To access this feature, you need to log in to your Microsoft account first. Then, navigate to the address bar and select follow. You can also view all the websites that you follow by heading over to the Collections window and clicking on the Follow tab.
These new upgrades are coming to the desktop version of Microsoft Edge. If you have been using Collections, these new features will be rolling out within the next few months. You will get an update prompt in the Collections pane when it arrives for your Edge browser.
