In April, Microsoft Edge gained support for the tab-sharing feature of the Canary Channel for desktop and mobile devices.

After months of testing, Microsoft’s Edge browser has been updated with the ability to share tabs across the channel for regular customers.

By sharing tabs, you can start reading a web page on your PC and then send it to your laptop or smartphone.

The handy tool from Microsoft Edge allows you to send tabs to different devices, and it also eliminates the need to sync bookmarks or email URLs with yourself.

To try it, open any webpage and click on the address bar, and select the “Send this page” option.

This allows you to send the current page to supported devices that are currently signed in with a Microsoft account.

The receiving device receives an instant notification from the Microsoft Edge browser with the name and URL of the web page.
