Microsoft Edge is restoring the “Block” option for media autoplay controls, which was removed in a previous update. The feature is gradually rolling out to Edge Insiders in the Canary Channel, but all users can also restore the “Block” option by enabling an experimental flag in the browser settings. This change aims to improve users’ browsing experience by providing a simple way to block auto-playing videos without the need for third-party extensions. Users can fine-tune their preferences by adding exceptions to the block list as well. Microsoft is planning to add a built-in cryptocurrency wallet for Edge, which is currently being tested internally.
Microsoft plans to make it available to more customers in the coming weeks. Users can also enable the feature by turning on the “edge://flags/#edge-autoplay-user-setting-block-option”
