What you need to know
- The Collections feature is now enabled by default in Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev rings.
- The feature allows you to organize websites, images, and other content from around the web.
- Several updates to Collections are also available starting today.
The Collections feature for Microsoft Edge is now enabled by default for anyone testing out Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev channels. The feature is enabled by default on build 80.0.338.0 or later. To gain access to the feature previously, people had to use a feature flag. In addition to enabling Collections by default, the Microsoft Edge team added several new features to the feature.
Collections allows you to grab websites, images, and other content from around the web and organize them into collections. You can rearrange items in these collections, add notes, and highlight specific content, so it's easier to find later. The Microsoft Edge team gives a few examples of how to use Collections in a new blog post, including organizing travel information and planning lessons for a student.
Collections has been available to testers for months, but people had to enable a flag to gain access to it until recently. Now, the feature is enabled by default and has new features and enhancements. People can now sync Collections across devices, open all links in a collection in a new window, edit card titles, and share a collection. The feature also gained a dark mode in its recent update.

Not only Canary, I see them now in my dev version. I'm not sure when they've appeared, but they are now.
I would much rather see more R&D invested in reading list than collections. I never use collections in Edge. The biggest thing I miss is folder management in Edge reading list
A made a collection to be my reading list for now. They are implementing reading list again at some point, though, which is great.
