Redstone 2 To Bring A Reminder Feature For Edge

Looks like the Microsoft Edge web browser is in line to recieve another feature, which Redmond is currently testing, as some early hints of this new addition have recently been discovered.

It is believed that the software titan will debut a ‘Snooze’ feature for the Edge web browser on mobile devices that will allow users to set up reminders when loading specific websites. They can then be notified at a later time to see the page or share it with contacts.
And all that fun stuff.

The only thing that does not make too much sense right now is the Snooze name, but then again, these are still early days and Microsoft is experimenting.

According to the report, the software titan is hard at work to get this new feautre ready for an upcoming preview build that wil be shipped for users enrolled in the Windows Insider program.

No indication on whether this will arrive with the next preview version or not, as a new build is on track to go live this week for both PCs and mobile devices.

Interestingly, Snooze will have bring Cortana into the picture on WIndows 10 Mobile, and have her set a reminder for the currently loaded page, along with a contact, location and date.

While this feature is set to be directly integrated into the Edge browser, the fact that it will be tied to Cortana might raise some problems for users that either do not have the personal assistant enabled, or don’t have an option to because of limited availability in certain regions.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
