web browser every month and this time around, the company is testing a new feature as a part of its recently announced RSS feed, Followable.
According to a report by Windows Latest, Microsoft is bringing YouTube integration to the browser as a part of the newly announced RSS feed.
With YouTube integration, users will be able to curate the content from their favourite creators right into the Collection pane on Edge. The integration will allow users to follow their favourite creator right from the URL section of the browser by simply clicking on the new follow button.
Once followed, new content from that particular creator will start surfacing into the updated Collection pane. Clicking on the content from the Collection pane will take the user directly to the video. Also, for the feature to work, users will need to add the YouTube channel to the RSS feed list.
In addition to that, Microsoft is also testing a new
tab for Chromium Edge. The Discover section will allow users to find new things, websites and content via
All the new features including the YouTube integration and Discover tab is currently in the A/B testing phase and are rolling out to select users as of now.
Reports suggest that the features are automatically enabled on the Edge Canary version of the browser. So, if you want to try out the new features, you can download the Edge Canary from the official website.
However, there are changes, even the Canary version won’t show up these features due to the server-side phased rollout. So, if you are a Canary user and these features aren’t available for you, currently, there’s no way to enable them manually.
