Microsoft announced a wide range of new features in the Edge browser, most notably free video calls via Skype, through the new tab page in the browser using the special “Meet Now” button.
Clicking (Meet Now) will create a video chat link that you can share with up to 50 friends who can join you for free. No subscription or download is required.
The button lets you share screens, chat with others, and record sessions that last up to 24 hours.
The Meet Now button is rolled out via Edge this month, and the company plans to bring it to the web version of Outlook and the Windows 10 taskbar in the coming weeks.
The company also added improvements to (PDF) files, the built-in screenshot tool, support for more features and new shopping features, as it stated: One of the most important features required for the (PDF) handler for the browser is support for the table of contents.
And the browser now has a built-in screenshot tool so you can capture what you need from the webpage and share it with others or save it for future reference.
And the browser automatically scrolls the page down so you can get everything you need in one screenshot.
