This is interesting because Pinterest used to be built into Collections as an optional feature. I just noticed today that the corresponding option has disappeared from the settings, so it must have been removed at some point. Last year there were also rumors that Microsoft wanted to buy Pinterest. Now they are apparently getting down to work on installing the corresponding functions natively in Edge.
A blog post presents various innovations for the collections in Edge, some of which are used to “recreate” functions from Pinterest. For example, it is now possible to right-click to store media files such as images or videos in a collection so that they can be easily found again later. If you’re using Edge’s built-in visual search, you’ll also see an option to add images to a collection.
In the near future you should also be able to share your collections with other users, for example to plan a trip together or to work together on other topics.
Another function known from Pinterest will be implemented via the new “Inspiration Feed”, the rollout of which is to begin shortly. Based on the content you’ve added to a collection, Microsoft Edge will bring up additional suggestions that might be thematically related to that collection. As an example of its usefulness, it is given here that one can find new ideas and inspiration in this way when planning a trip.
In addition, Microsoft is working on a Collections feature that will allow users to follow their favorites on YouTube, TikTok, or other media services and be notified when new content is available. The following video demonstrates what this should look like:
