Last year, Microsoft started experimenting with a built-in
coupon and price comparison tool for Chromium Edge. The
feature basically adds a “shopping” pop-up to the address bar
to display coupon codes and help users save money on online
shopping. As expected, Microsoft is now planning to enable the
same feature in the Android version of Edge.
Microsoft recently started unifying the Edge codebase to enable
support for the same features across desktop and mobile
platforms. Last month, Microsoft released a new Edge Canary
build for Android that matches the Edge Canary for desktops and
enables support for flags menu, new menu layout, improved
performance, and more.
Microsoft Edge Canary for Android is available via the Google
Play Store link and is updated regularly with improvements. The
Play Store listing doesn’t include a changelog for the new
builds, but after today’s update, it looks like Microsoft Edge
has finally gained support for the “shopping” feature on
On mobile or desktop, you’ve to browse the web to discover
coupons and other ways to save money on products being brought
online. With Microsoft Edge’s shopping feature, you finally
automate this task and quickly discover discount coupons
available on the internet.
As you can see in the above screenshot, Microsoft Edge will
surface discount codes when you visit online shops like eBay.
Unsurprisingly, Microsoft is using Bing to hunt down these
coupons and automatically generate the codes when you visit a
supported e-commerce platform in the United States and other
In our tests, we observed that this coupon-finding or
“shopping” feature is available on popular online stores only
and it may not work properly outside the US, UK or Canada.
Microsoft is gradually rolling out the Shopping feature for
Edge mobile, so be patient if you can’t see it even after
updating the browser.
In addition to the Android version,
Microsoft Edge for desktop was also updated recently with
Outlook integration and other improvements.
