What you need to know

  • Microsoft Edge on iOS and Android now supports collections.
  • Collections sync from your PC and across other devices.
  • You can create, organize, and add items to your Collections from the mobile version of Edge.

Microsoft Edge on iOS and Android now has access to the browser's Collections feature. Collections are a useful tool that allow you to gather together links, photos, and other information from around the web into groups that sync across devices. Collections has been available for some time on Microsoft Edge on the desktop but is now available on iOS and Android devices.

Collections sync across instances of Microsoft Edge, and that now includes the mobile versions of the browser. When you open up Collections on the mobile version of Edge, you'll see your Collections that you created on your PC.

The mobile version of Edge has a few different UI options for Collections that makes it easier to navigate the web while also browsing your collections. It features a collapsible drawer that lets you scroll through Collections content or a full screen view.

You can create new Collections, add items to your Collections, and organize your Collections from the mobile version of Edge. Microsoft breaks down the features with some handy GIFs in a recent blog post.
