The newest Microsoft Edge beta update is now reportedly receiving support for Collections. It is the same feature that Microsoft added to the PC version of the browser late last year. It works exactly the same way which is to help users create a collection of similar items they browse on the web.
Collections is a tool that will surely be appreciated by those who do any kind of research online. It will help them store all the relevant articles, images, videos, audios, etc at a single place. These can be then be revisited at any time for quick access and continuing with the research. It can also be useful for shoppers who might like to save multiple products for comparison purposes or save the same product available on different websites for price and offers comparison.
The report mentions that the Collections support is available on Edge beta version 45.04.24.4994 or higher. It is likely a server-side change which means just being on the correct version will not guarantee that all users will get the feature. It will only ensure that you have a chance of getting the feature if the beta testing team decides to enable it for you.
If the feature is available for you, you will see a new "Collections" option within the pop-up menu. Tapping on the option will let you create a new collection and give it a name. Once items have been added, a user can also choose to re-order the saved items whenever he wants or needs. All collections feature real-time syncing so that you can create/modify them on Android and check them on the PC and vice-versa.
