People are using smartphones nowadays more than ever – most of us have a laptop for work and the “mini computer” in our pocket. It’s perfectly understandable, as the phone offers a lot of benefits.
App developers know this aspect very well, which is why they’re adapting their services more and more to make them collaborate between the big screens and the small ones. One good example is Microsoft with its well-known Edge browser.
Beware of Edge’s new “Drop” feature
According to windowslatest.com, Microsoft is working to implement the “Drop” feature to the Edge browser, and it’s already being rolled out in Edge Canary 104. It’s a very nice addition considering that it provides the possibility to store files and notes in OneDrive and further have access to them from multiple devices. Users have the possibility to enable or disable the feature from the Settings menu. Of course, this implies that all your devices have Microsoft Edge installed. The browser is available for many platforms, so there’s no need to worry too much: Windows PCs, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS.
Sure, there’s also the possibility of manually transferring a file from one device to another. But it takes an extra effort and a little more time than just applying for the “Drop” feature.
Probably one serious downside of Edge’s “Drop” feature is that it doesn’t offer support for other storage options outside OneDrive. This means that you won’t have the possibility to store your files elsewhere except Microsoft’s storage service.
Are you excited at the idea of the “Drop” feature arriving for Microsoft Edge? Will you use it, or do you prefer other methods to pass your favorite files from one device to another? Let us know in the comment section what you think!
