Microsoft Edge stable is finally getting tabs sharing tool

In April, Microsoft Edge gained support for the tabs sharing
feature in the Canary Channel of the desktop and mobile
browser. Now, after months of testing, Microsoft Edge has been
updated with the ability to share tabs on the channel intended
for regular customers (non-Insiders).

Microsoft Edge’s handy tool lets you send tabs to different
devices and it eliminates the need to sync bookmarks or email
URLs to yourself. It’s currently rolling out to a small subset
of users in the stable channel on Windows 10 and macOS, but
we’re not seeing it in Edge Android/iOS (stable).

To give it a try, open any webpage and click on the address
bar, and select the option “Send this page”. This will let you
send the current page to supported devices currently signed
into using your Microsoft account. The receiving device will
receive a push notification from Microsoft Edge with the name
and URL of the webpage.

You can also right-click on links and select the device to
share the link. As you can see in the below screenshot, when
you right-click on links, it brings up a small laptop and phone
icon, which you can tap to send the link to the selected
device. Of course, this option will not show up if you don’t
use Edge on more than one device.

Edge tabs sharing

Based on our test, it appears that the tabs sharing tool is
actually live for a very small group of users in the stable
build v91.0.864.54. It’s likely that it will begin rolling out
to more users in the coming days.

It’s also worth pointing out that tabs sharing is currently
limited to desktop only. If you want to send tabs to Android or
iPhone, you need to download and install Edge Canary/Dev on
your mobile.

It’s a welcome update, but Microsoft is rather late to the
game. Google Chrome and Firefox browsers were updated with
identical Send Tabs feature in 2019.

In addition to tabs sharing, Microsoft is also working on

improvements for the browser’s built-in offline game
“Surf”. Microsoft Edge’s Surf tool is designed specifically
for those with internet connectivity issues and it challenges
players to surf while avoiding obstacles or sea monster.

In the Canary channel, Edge Surf was recently updated with new
obstacles and a streamlined character selection menu. Likewise,
Microsoft is also testing
new font rendering controls for Edge on Windows 10.

Update: The feature also works on iOS if you use the preview
builds of Edge.
