Some time ago, in the battle of mobile browsers, Microsoft decided to create a new Chromium based application. We’re talking about Microsoft Edge, which recently landed on Google Play in its most experimental version: Edge Canary. In this way, as with Chrome Canary, Microsoft allows anyone to experience the new features that will be coming soon to the stable version of Edge.
Now, thanks to an update of Microsoft Edge Canary for Windows 10 and Android, it has started to activate a new feature that allows us send tabs to different devices
From PC to mobile or vice versa
Microsoft has started rolling out an update to Edge Canary for Windows 10 and Android which, as we say, includes a new feature to send tabs to different devices. This tool, similar to the functionality “Send to my devices” from Chromium, eliminates the need to use bookmarks, tab sync, history, or email function when a user needs to share a URL with themselves.
As explained in Windows Lastest, to use the “Send to my devices” function, you must have the version Edge Canary 92.0.873.0 on the computer and Edge Canary 92.0.870.0 on Android. Once we update both browsers, the process is as follows:
- On your computer, right click on a link or tab and select the option ‘Send the link to [nombre del dispositivo]. You can also access the function directly from the address bar.
With this you will send the current page to your second Windows device or Android phone, provided that on the other device you have also started sign in with your Microsoft account.
If the function is activated on your phone, you will receive an alert It includes the URL, the name of the page, and the device you shared it from.
In the case of Microsoft Edge for Android, you need to press the ‘Share on my device’ option that you will find in the “Share” menu and select the device from the list. The link will instantly appear in the Windows 10 action center. Click the notification on Android or Windows to open the shared page in Microsoft Edge.
As this is a gradual roll-out, at the moment it is only available for certain users. In Engadget Android, we tried to run it, but we don’t have the latest update. Windows Lastest ensures that it is possible to share tabs between Microsoft Edge for Windows 10 and Android without issue, but the feature is not yet available on macOS.
