New updates make Microsoft Edge your daily dashboard for work

Written By published October 29, 2020

With Microsoft Edge, we are constantly striving to get you to the best of productivity and information. Over the last year and a half, we brought Office 365 content to your Microsoft Edge so that you can pick up work where you left off. Today, we’re excited to add news and information from your favorite content providers in a new “My Feed” section within the Enterprise New Tab Page.

This customizable feed is designed to keep you informed and connected to industry information most relevant to your industry, or your company. Previously, the new tab experience offered news as a separate toggle; now, you’ll get the best of work and news available in a single view.  You will see “My Feed” available in Microsoft Edge Insider preview builds starting with version 87.0.0.

My Feed now available on the Microsoft Edge Enterprise new tab page

When you sign in using your work/school Azure Active Directory work account, opening a new tab page in Microsoft Edge delivers the familiar Office 365 work and productivity content and new pivots that organize news feeds relevant to your industry and interests in one view.

My Feed brings together information from news providers relevant to your work and industry. This can be further customized to your interest. IT administrators can select what topics and interests are available for their organization by going to the Microsoft 365 admin center portal.

A closer look at My Feed.

To personalize your feed based on your interests, click on Personalize menu item on top, and choose content that matters to you from the interests made available by your organization.

Microsoft 365 Compliance

The Office and productivity experiences in the Enterprise new tab page, including Microsoft search in Bing, Dynamic tiles, and Office 365 content, continue to be compliant and serve data from your organization. To learn more about the Microsoft 365 compliance for our productivity experiences, read our original blog post here.

Manage your organization’s Feeds using the M365 admin center.

As an IT Admin, you control the News feed settings for your organization, including the selected industry and these changes control what appears on the Microsoft Bing homepage and Microsoft Edge New tab page. You can learn more in our Admin Center docs.  Note that changes made in the Microsoft 365 admin center can take up to 24 hours to take effect.
