People working on Microsoft Edge Beta 121

Shortly after releasing Edge 120 for all users in the Stable Channel, Microsoft pushed out Edge 121 to those testing the browser in the Beta Channel. Like the latest stable release, Edge 121 Beta focuses on business customers and policy changes. However, one thing will also affect regular customers: the update experience moving from the Settings page to the Browser Essentials section. Microsoft says that would improve feature visibility and enhance the user experience.

What is new in Microsoft Edge 121 Beta?

Here is the official changelog:

Enable organizational branding in Edge for Business. Enable your organization's branding assets from Entra onto profile-related UI for profiles signed in with an Entra ID (formerly known as Azure Active Directory) account. You can add your organization's details such as name to the profile pill, name and brand color to the profile flyout, and logo to overlay the Edge for Business taskbar icon. This branding can help users more easily differentiate between multiple profiles and browser windows.

Default organizational branding can be enabled by admins through the following policies:
