Microsoft is testing a new feature in Microsoft Edge that allows users to follow YouTube channels using browser integration. The resource is available to a limited number of users that use the latest trial version of Microsoft Edge available through the channel canary.
Trial versions of the Microsoft Edge browser are offered through three distribution channels: Beta, which receives new versions every four weeks, dev, which receives new versions weekly, and canary, which receives new versions daily and contains more experimental features. It is worth noting that the version offered on the Canary channel can also be more unstable. Users can download the trial version by going to microsoftedgeinsider.com/download.
According to Reddit user Leopeva64, the latest trial version of Microsoft Edge available on the Canary channel now displays the option to follow YouTube channels from the address bar:
If the user uses the option to follow the channel, they will be added to a feed that is part of the browser’s Collections feature. For those who don’t know, the Collections feature allows the user to save web pages for later viewing, and soon Microsoft also plans to use it for viewing RSS feeds:

It is important to note that this feature is still under development and at the moment we do not know when it will be available to all users of the stable version of Microsoft’s browser.
In addition to YouTube integration, another feature that is also being tested in the Microsoft Edge browser is support for dynamic refresh rate, which should give you a better experience when browsing the web. Learn more about it here.
