What do you want to know
- Microsoft is testing a feature for its Edge browser called “Drop”.
- Users can save content via Drop and sync it across platforms.
- Drop is part of a controlled deployment in Edge Canary, so only certain people can try it out at this time.
Microsoft continues to work on new ways to sync content between devices. A new feature called “Drop” is currently in testing through Edge Canary. With Drop, users can save files and notes in the browser and sync content across devices.
The feature, which was spotted and showcased by Neowin, appears to work with both mobile devices and PCs. “Your files and notes will be available on all your connected mobile devices and PCs,” the tool’s description reads.
Drop works with OneDrive, allowing users to store large amounts of content. As far as we know, the feature will let you sync as much content as you want, as long as you have room in your OneDrive storage.
As is the case with all testing features through Edge Canary, Drop is part of a controlled deployment. This means that even if you are using the latest version of the browser, you may not be able to use the feature. For example, we couldn’t try the feature on any of our machines, but the tool worked for Neowin.
If you’re one of the testers able to use the feature, you can enable it through the Appearance section of Edge’s settings.
Assuming Microsoft is happy with Drop’s progress, the tool should be rolling out to more users in the near future.
