Microsoft Edge has gained a considerable following since upgrading to the Chrome open source platform, and is getting better and better in the latest release. Microsoft Edge has now acquired a new feature that is said to help you find the best price and apply for a publicly available coupon.
Microsoft Edge version 86.0.622.61 now offers a new feature called “Shopping” that is enabled by default, but is only valid on some websites. In our tests, we found that this feature is only available on popular platforms such as Best Buy, Dell, etc. Browsers have allowed users to compare prices across multiple platforms using the collection feature. After the update, users can now apply coupon codes generated by shopping sites and coupon platforms.
If the user is using Microsoft Edge 86.0.622.61 or later, the feature can be turned on by settings such as Open Edge Settings, Search for “Shopping,” Edge Shopping, and enabling the “Save time and money on Microsoft Edge shopping” option, which appears to be available only to some users, so some users may not be able to see this option in their browsers right now.
Microsoft is using Bing, its search engine, to sniff out popular e-commerce and coupon discount platforms and extract data. When you visit a shopping site, Microsoft uses Bing to query its pricing data and extract relevant information, and then displays the discount coupon code. Edge’s price comparison feature, internally known as “mscollectionspricecomparison,” was first launched in Microsoft Edge’s beta channel. After more than two months of testing with insiders, Microsoft finally made it public.
Earlier this year, Microsoft said it was just the beginning of a shopping trip, with Chrome Edge introducing more features to help users save time and money during Black Friday, Cyber Monday, holidays and Christmas. Notably, the tech giant is also developing a range of new features for Chrome Edge, including a new PDF experience, a favorite bar, a history button in the toolbar, and more.
