In IE11 for Windows 8, the pinned websites had the possibility to display live tiles, showing, for example, the latest news of that website:

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ie/2014/05/21/support-a-live-tile-for-your-website-on-windows-and-w...

 

That made using pinned websites a part of Windows apps experience: live tiles were not just shortcuts, but also a way of displaying information. 

 

Unfortunately, in Chromium Edge, when I pin the website to Start (by using Apps -> Install this site as an app), it is not a live tile, and just works as a shortcut that opens a standalone tabless window of Edge.

 

Please support the possibility for the websites to share information using Live Tiles in the new version of Edge.
