Microsoft is working on an upgrade for its Edge browser which would be a frustrating issue that users have been facing for quite a while now. With this new feature, Microsoft edge new features solve the file-sharing issues, so stay tuned for more as we would be diving deep into this article.
Microsoft Edge New Feature Solves File-sharing Issue
Added to the latest early-access build – available to members of the canary channel – it is a new feature that goes by the name Drop. It offers Microsoft edge users a much easier way to transfer notes, links, and other assets between their devices.
Just as reported by Neowin, the drop feature sits right on a collapsible window on the right-hand side of the screen and it looks more like a chat interface. By dragging content into the window, users get to set it aside for easy access on a different device, provided that both are registered to the same Microsoft account.
Microsoft Edge File-Sharing
The transition to hybrid working meant that a lot of people made use of Multiple devices for work, from business computers and smartphones and smartphones to laptops and tablets. A common frustration for employees in this scenario is the need for you to ensure files and other assets that are available at all times, on all devices.
Although Cloud Storage and File transfer services like OneDrive and Dropbox go a long way when it comes to relieving these issues, there is still a gap for a simple tool for sharing the odd link or images, without you having to faff with uploading and syncing them through different services.
Till recently, People have had to resort to sending themselves private messages via email or through collaboration platforms like Slack, but by building the same functionality straight into the browser itself, Microsoft is working to offer a more sensible way to achieve the same objective.
Microsoft New Drop Feature
And as expected, good things usually do not always come for free. Microsoft’s new drop feature would not offer unlimited file transfers, but rather count towards the user’s OneDrive cloud storage capacity, which would vary depending on their subscription plan.
Although this new feature is yet to be available to regular users, barring any disasters in testing, we would expect a drop to land with a public Edge build in the months to come.
