Microsoft Edge's new feature promotes Skype video conferencing
Microsoft is rolling out a new feature in Microsoft Edge that integrates Skype's Meet now video conferencing feature on the new tab page, also known as NTP.
With this new feature, Microsoft aims to help consumers relying on video conferencing to get in touch with coworkers, friends, and relatives without creating a Skype or Microsoft account.
Last month, Microsoft added the Skype Meet feature to Windows 10 preview builds and the same feature is now rolling out to Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft will add a small video conferencing button to the new tab page of Edge when the feature is rolled out to your device, as shown below:
When clicked on the Meet Now button, Edge will open Skype Web and launch the Meet Now setup screen. This will allow you to create a meeting and others can join using your invite link.
Once created, you can use chat, voice and video to communicate with attendees.
Other Microsoft Edge features
Today, Microsoft also announced a new feature called "Price comparison" for Microsoft Edge that will help you find the best price this holiday.
This new feature will help you easily compare the price of a product you want across other retailers with one single click and it has been designed to help you find the best price while shopping online.
To get started, you need to add a product to a collection and click “compare price to other retailers” to compare the price of a product across other retailers.
In addition, Microsoft is rolling out "Web Capture" feature that will help you take a snapshot of web article to share in a PowerPoint presentation with annotation.
