Microsoft Edge gets text prediction tool for editable fields in new update

Microsoft has rolled out a new update to its Edge browser, which brings a small handful of updates and new features, including text prediction.

The update is available for the stable version of Edge, so anyone who regularly uses the browser should be able to download it, Windows Central reports.

The text prediction feature provides predictions for long editable text fields on web pages.

Currently, the feature is limited to English in the United States, India, and Australia, according to the report.

The new Edge update also adds the ability to link a personal Microsoft account and an Azure Active Directory account through work or school.

Once linked, users can earn Microsoft Rewards points for Microsoft Bing searches performed in their browser or in the Windows search box while signed in with their work or school account, the report adds.

Meanwhile, Microsoft announced that it has enhanced its Teams Rooms on Android with new touch-enabled features, including the ability to roam and use the Microsoft Whiteboard, chat bubbles, and more.

Users can take advantage of all the new features by updating Microsoft Teams Rooms to Android Update 3, the tech giant said in a statement.

A Microsoft Whiteboard session can be launched with a single tap, enabling instant collaboration.
