- Were you in need of some text prediction for your Edge browser on Windows 11?
- The good news is that this feature is coming and the rollout process has started.
- Text predictions will soon be available for both Windows 11 and Windows 10 users.
- Don't be alarmed if you don't get it yet, only select users are testing it at the moment.
The Redmond tech giant is working on yet another interesting feature for their Edge browser, which is called text predictions.
This new functionality will use Microsoft’s in-house AI and ML technology to suggest the best word possible while users are typing on the web.
If you were wondering when this feature will start rolling out, you might want to know that it already started but only to select users on Windows 10 and Windows 11 in the Canary Channel of the browser.
Text predictions started rolling out for Dev and Canary users
Edge’s text predictions feature is similar to how Microsoft Editor or Outlook’s predictions work. If you want to accept Microsoft’s text predictions, you just need to tap on the tab key or the right arrow key.
However, if you want to ignore the suggestion, you can just keep typing and the preview will disappear.
According to the Microsoft roadmap, text predictions will become available to the rest of the users soon to help them compose better written online messages.
If you’re using Edge Dev or Canary, you can try out the experimental text predictions by making sure your device’s region is set to the United States along with the language.
Edge’s new feature will help us write faster and with fewer mistakes when you’re browsing search engines or social media websites.
When the feature is enabled, the browser will display its predictions or suggestions in a greyed-out suggestion box wherever you’re writing online.
Furthermore, Edge’s predictions feature works only on Windows 10 or Windows 11, and it’s not yet clear when the feature will be added to the macOS version.
So, if you felt that this functionality was among the important things lacking from Microsoft’s popular web browser, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that it’s on its way.
