Microsoft may soon let you follow YouTubers in Edge

(Pocket-lint) – It looks like Microsoft is working on some updates to its Edge browser that include the ability to follow YouTubers directly from your browser.
With the most recent Canary versions of the Edge browser, the company has added a feature that includes a “web followable” integration. This system allows you to easily follow YouTubers directly from your browser.
This was originally spotted by Redditor Leopeva64 who saw that a new follow button had appeared on Bing’s address bar while browsing YouTube. Clicking this follow button then allows a user to add them to collections in Microsoft Edge. When you have added multiple creators to your collection, then you will be able to see their recent posts in the collection.
At the moment, it’s clearly still in the early stages of development as it’s only in the Canary development builds and doesn’t yet support all YouTubers either. It’s interesting to see Microsoft working on tools like this to help you easily find and track your favorite content.
The follow button is essentially a new RSS-like system, but for following YouTubers rather than bloggers or publishers. Google has also been experimenting with ways to allow users to follow content creators directly in its browser. Both companies seem determined to make it easy for you to keep up to date with your favorite content creators.
There’s currently no official word on when the new feature might be fully rolled out to the public, but it might just be a matter of time.
