Dev Channel updates

The following Dev channel updates preceded this Stable channel release. The following Dev notes provide detailed information about the changes in each release.

Feature updates

  • AI theme generator. Microsoft Edge includes an AI theme generator that allows users to input a text prompt and generate a series of images to preview as browser themes. Applying the theme includes setting the generated image on the Edge new tab page and applying the image's dominant color to the browser frame. Admins can control availability to this feature using the AIGenThemesEnabled policy. Note: This feature is a controlled feature rollout. If you don't see this feature, check back as we continue our rollout.
  • Security setting controls in the Microsoft Edge management service. The Microsoft Edge management service will provide admins with a dedicated experience to manage specific settings that help improve the security posture of their managed browser instances. Note: This experience is in public preview and can be accessed by opting in to targeted release in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
  • Copilot summarization notification. The feature displays an Omnibox notification when users enter into a reading mode eligible page in Edge and offers them the option to open Copilot in the sidebar to generate a summary of the content. Note: This feature is a controlled feature rollout. If you don't see this feature, check back as we continue our rollout.

Policy updates

New policies

  • ProactiveAuthWorkflowEnabled - Enable proactive authentication
  • InternetExplorerSetForegroundWhenActive - Keep the active Microsoft Edge window with an Internet Explorer mode tab always in the foreground.

Obsoleted policies

Edge will update itself to version 126 automatically. However, you can speed things up by going to Menu > Help & Feedback > About Microsoft Edge or the edge://settings/help page.
