Microsoft Edge has introduced a new Shared Links feature designed to make it easier to find links shared by colleagues. This feature will be available on the browser’s new tab page as well as in the address bar.
With the Shared Links feature, Edge aims to solve the problem of losing important links shared by colleagues in the midst of various Teams channels and email threads. This feature will be particularly useful when your boss shares a link to a website that requires immediate action from you.
For businesses subscribed to Microsoft 365 or an enterprise version of Microsoft 365, the Shared Links feature will detect and gather links shared by colleagues. These links will be accessible within the Edge sidebar called Shared Links, which can be filtered by person, date, link type, and app of origin. At the initial stage, links will be shared through Outlook and Teams.
In addition to the sidebar, the Shared Links feature will also be integrated into the address bar. When typing, Edge will autofill links shared with you. Furthermore, upon opening a new tab, a list of shared links will be displayed. While it may not completely eliminate the struggle of finding shared links, it provides a convenient starting point for locating them.
Currently, the Shared Links feature is available as prepopulated results in the Edge address bar, in preview on the Edge new tab page and Edge mobile, and will soon be accessible within the sidebar, according to Microsoft.
