Way back in May we reported that Microsoft was bringing Pinterest integration to Edge Collections.
Now the feature is finally available to all in Edge 86.

People use Collections to capture their favourite design ideas, recipes, home improvement links, and even to research their next big purchase across multiple sites. Edge Collections helps users organize and save groups of content such as links, images, text, and notes across multiple sites, pages, and browser sessions to help you stay organized.
Now Pinterest will help Collections users discover relevant content for their research or project.
When you enable the feature, (under Settings > Services > “Show suggestions from Pinterest in Collections”) you will see Pinterest suggestions at the bottom of your collection. Clicking on a suggestion will open a board of similar, trending Pins so you can quickly find and add ideas relevant to you.
This collaboration also allows you to export your collection to Pinterest. Any saved webpages or images will then show up in a new board in your Pinterest account.
“We believe people should expect more from their browser,” said Liat Ben-Zur, corporate vice president at Microsoft. “I love using Pinterest suggestions in Microsoft Edge to discover content that inspires me for the holidays. From holiday party planning to collecting meal recipes, to creating my gift-giving shopping list, Microsoft Edge + Pinterest can help everyone find fun and creative projects to help you stand out.”
The latest version of Edge is currently being pushed out to all Windows 10 users, or can be downloaded directly here.
