Microsoft is going to add a new option to Chromium-based Edge called "sidebar search," officials said today.

At that time, Microsoft officials said they were planning to begin rolling out the new Edge via Windows Update starting six to eight weeks from that date.

Microsoft officials are now saying that it will be upgrading automatically all Windows 10 customers -- minus Enterprise and Education users -- to the new Edge "over the course of the next few weeks" in a staggered way.

Microsoft still has not started automatically rolling out its new Chromium-based Edge browser to mainstream Windows users.

Speaking of work-related searches, Microsoft also is adding a new Bing WORK results page to Bing results pages for all Microsoft 365 users when they're signed into their work accounts (and when this capability is enabled by administrators).
