Microsoft has added support for Azure Active Directory accounts in the new Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge. Users of both work and school accounts can take advantage of these in the Canary and Dev channels in addition to the new Beta branch that the company recently opened.
Users signed into their organization account will be able to sync their favorites, bookmarks, settings, and autofill data while they’re signed in. Microsoft says this will eventually expand to web history, opened tabs, and installed extensions sometime in the future.
Additionally, users will also benefit from websites that use single sign-on. Office, for example, will authenticate the user immediately when signed into Edge with their organization account. The same holds true for other websites that also recognize the organization account of the user.
If you’re interested, you can download the latest versions of the Chromium Edge browser via one of the three branches—Beta, Dev, or Canary depending on—via the Microsoft Edge Insider website.
