Microsoft Edge to get YouTube integration and Discover tab on Windows

Microsoft Edge is getting more and more features almost every
month, and one of the latest features is YouTube integration.
YouTube panel seems to be part of the company’s effort to
integrate the RSS feed into the browser and contents will
appear within Microsoft Edge’s Collections pane.

More specifically, Microsoft is working on a feature that will
allow you to follow your favourite content creators using
Chromium Edge. This will allow users to access YouTube content
with just a click. The new YouTube follow button, which will be
added right in the address bar of YouTube URLs, will provide
easy-click access to videos.

Microsoft is A/B testing the YouTube integration in Edge and
not everybody can try it out, but if you want to try your luck,
download and run Edge Canary. It appears that the feature is
enabled by default and users can try it by simply visiting
YouTube channels.

Microsoft Edge YouTube integration

As we mentioned at the outset, the Microsoft Edge YouTube
feature seems to be based on the upcoming
RSS feed integration. Microsoft is trying to add RSS feeds
called “Followable” to the Collections menu and this will allow
users to “follow” websites having an RSS feed.

When you follow a YouTube creator or website, Microsoft Edge
will deliver a curated list of the latest updates within the
Collections pane. The Collections tab will still appear on the
right side of the browser, but you’ll need to add a site or
YouTube channel to the list before you can access the feed.

Microsoft Edge’s RSS feed or YouTube feature is rolling out to
select users, so don’t fret if you’re not seeing the upgraded
Collections experience.

Microsoft Edge’s Discover tab

In addition to RSS feed integration, Microsoft also appears to
be experimenting with a new “Discover” tab. Unlike Google
Chrome’s Discover tab, Microsoft Edge’s Discover tab will let
you discover similar websites and content via Bing.

Microsoft Edge Discover

Like the RSS feed, Microsoft’s new Discover tab is available in
Edge Canary for select users and the feature will appear on the
right side of the browser only. As shown in the above
screenshot, you’ll be able to access the new Discover tab by
simply clicking on the new button.

If you’re already using Edge Canary and the Discover button
isn’t available, then there’s nothing you can do. Edge features
are rolled out in stages and Microsoft will enable Discover tab
or YouTube integration in a future update on your device.
