Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 brings Edge reminder

Microsoft will release Windows 10 Redstone 2 in early 2017 and some of its features are currently being tested by Insiders who have installed the new builds. Many things will change in the next major version of Windows 10, but mobile users are more excited about the new “Snooze” feature that will be introduced in Edge browser.

Aggiornamentilumia.it discovered it and explained that the feature will allow users to set up reminders when they visit specific websites and be later notified to return to the page or share it with friends. Microsoft hasn’t given any details about this feature, as it didn’t include in the change log of the latest Build for Insiders, and it’s not sure if Snooze will make its way to the final release or will be abandoned on the way.

Snooze will be tied to the Cortana digital assistant, which will remind users to return to the currently loaded page, or to share the link with a contact. The problem is that in some markets, Cortana is not available and the reminder feature may not be used in those countries.

Currently, Microsoft is busy with the preview builds that will be released on a regular basis until Redstone 2 makes its appearance in early 2017. It will be great if Snooze is present in the next build expected to go live this week which is slated to bring important fixes for a bug that caused Wi-Fi to crash on many devices. The upcoming preview will be launched for users who are part of the Windows Insider program and will be available for both PCs and mobile devices.
