Thanks for your feedback requesting the ability to sign in with a consumer Google account. From what we’re hearing, you’d like the ability to bring over data from Chrome, use your Google services and keep Microsoft Edge and Chrome in sync. 

 

While we recognize this need, we’re currently focused on creating great 1st party account experiences with your Microsoft account and Work or School account. We appreciate the feedback around supporting signing in with other providers such as Google and will be taking this under consideration.  One option available to you now would be to create a new Microsoft Account using your @gmail address, which would allow you to use a single user identifier across the various services you use. 

 

Today, you can import your data from Chrome by going to edge://settings/importData for a one time import. You can also sign into Google websites and remember your password in Microsoft Edge to reduce the number of times you need to sign into these websites. And you can access your Microsoft Edge data on the go by signing into Microsoft Edge with a Microsoft account and syncing with Microsoft Edge Mobile apps and Microsoft Edge on other devices 

 

We will keep you updated as we further explore support for other sign-in providers in Microsoft Edge as well, it is on our roadmap.

Hi @Elliot Kirk 

 

Please consider Not adding Google services. you have spent so much time removing Google stuff from Chromium, it doesn't make sense to add them back.

 

Only do it if and only if Google add sign-in using Microsoft account to their Chrome browser.

I bet they are not even thinking about it let alone putting it for a debate. you guys are really awesome  for that and you know better than me that people with Google account can easily sign up for a Microsoft account without even needing to create a new Email address. 

 

also there are facts like this.

Google Quietly Removes "Don't Be Evil" Preface From Code of Conduct

or This

and This

How do I protect my online privacy from 'surveillance capitalism'?

 

I don't want to Give a Data Mining company such as Google yet more information.

many of us use Microsoft products for a reason and that is to get distance from Google ecosystem.

Windows 10 is almost installed on over 1 Billion devices. there is no shortage of Microsoft account.

 

i think there are more registered Microsoft accounts than registered Google accounts.

 

 

@Elliot Kirk 

A reply I posted from over Here...... 

Under Review

Allow sign-in to the browser with a Google account

12 weeks

 

 

I'm sorry, but if I wanted a browser that the worlds largest data mining company had any access I'd be using Chrome....    And I truly hope that you are removing Anything Google from the Chromium coding.

@Elliot Kirk  "Thanks for your feedback requesting the ability to sign in with a consumer Google account. From what we’re hearing, you’d like the ability to bring over data from Chrome, use your Google services and keep Microsoft Edge and Chrome in sync."

 

I do not use Google Chrome because Chrome ties me into Google's data-mining operation, and I will not use EdgeChromium if the browser integrates Google services in the browser.

 

Microsoft disentangled EdgeChromium from Google services early on, and it seems to me that it would be a serious step backward if Microsoft backed off from that design philosophy.

 

Google Services Off.jpg

Few Linux builds use Chromium as the default browser (most use Firefox instead) in recent years, because most Linux users do not want to tied into Google; according to available studies, roughly 80% of Linux users prefer Firefox. I suspect that the same is true of most EdgeClassic users.

 

Having noted that, however, I understand why Microsoft is considering this move in order to lure Google users over to EdgeChromium.  That might be a rational move.

 

It seems to me that how Google integration is implemented makes a big difference, probably the defining difference.

 

If Microsoft reintegrates Google services into the browser embedded in Windows 10, that is a roadblock for all of us who don't want to be tied into the Google infrastructure.  If, on the other hand, EdgeChromium is Google-free as embedded into Windows 10, but allows those users who want to be tied into the Google infrastructure to have the option of activating that integration through a toggle or an extension, that is a different situation, and I would not object to that implementation.

The extension would be a good idea.
but having only a toggle in the settings would require Microsoft to ship Google services with Edge browser by default for everyone.

Honestly I don't mind having an option to have Google Sync and other sync providers.
But only if it's going to be an optional opt-in feature e.g. you active sync provider you want in the settings and it starts to download necessary 3rd-party modules. Unless Microsoft somehow finds a way to ship those providers without enforcing their telemetry/data collection.
Not sure how realistic any of it sounds though but if something works out in the end, I won't say no to that.

@HotCakeX "... but having only a toggle in the settings would require Microsoft to ship Google services with Edge browser by default for everyone ..."

 

I don't think that is necessarily true.  It seems to me that the toggle could be set up to act like "Turn Windows Features on and off" checkboxes in the Control Panel, downloading the Google services and installing when the toggle is turned on and the browser restarted, but not before.  But if that is not technically possible to set up a toggle in that way for some reason, then Microsoft shouldn't do it that way.

@tomscharbach 

that's good too,

the point is just that the Google services shouldn't be there by default and only be added to the browser only if the user wants.

@Elliot Kirk 

While I get everyone's concern with Google and their data, simply removing the option altogether is really not a solution. Just because of the few that do not want to use Google, that should not mean that everyone else should be barred from it.

 

I have installed Edge Chromium on my laptop, which I use at work, and taken it for a test drive all day.

At work all our accounts a GSuite accounts, that means I have to use Google, and that also means I do not have an option of just using something else and not syncing the account. While Edge was fine for general browsing, I can't make the switch unless it allows me to have freedom with what I want to use or sync.

 

Similarly at home I have multiple google devices and services, which means I would, again, be barred from them. Now this might sound all fine, but it really isn't because the amount of time and effort it would take me to transfer my entire ecosystem from Google to Microsoft is both impractical and unwanted. For this to be a browser that allows a full switch it needs to play nice with the rest, because who wants to use a browser for this and a browser for that? It just becomes a hassle and people jump ship back to Google Chrome.


So while I understand that some people might not want to use Google, I strongly disagree it should be totally removed. Keyword is Option.

100% agree

Few??

99% don't want Google integration.

they already have too much access to people's data.

 

there is no need to transfer entire ecosystem. Edge doesn't even support the entire ecosystem!

Edge sync is simple, favorites, passwords, address and that's it.

the rest of the sync options are dynamically generated content and no need to be imported.

 

also Microsoft account is widely used on Windows devices. (desktops, laptops, tablets, phones) work/home/school/organization you name it.

 

one doesn't need to create a new Email address in order to have a Microsoft account.

 

Google should First add support for Microsoft account sign in, and then, only then, Microsoft should add Google sign in to their browsers.

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not saying it has to be mandatory integration, I'm saying that if it lacks the option, it's unusable for a lot of people. Your 99% is biased and, honestly, unreal. Google is ahead of Microsoft in terms of usage so whether you like it or not, you can't simply say "no google in this browser people don't want it" because it is NEEDED.
If there is no option to use it, you're cutting out on the amount of people that can use your browser. For Google this is fine, they have the bulk of the users anyway, they don't have to care, it's not in their interest to play nice. So yes FEW people. If Microsoft wants to put up REAL competition, they have to take that ease of use from Chrome and integrations, or it is simply IMPOSSIBLE from a business standpoint. They have to steal users away and they can't do it by offering less options.

Saying that Edge doesn't support the ecosystem just means Edge can't replace Chrome, which, you know, it's what they were trying to do, creating a browser you can use on it's own.

And yes, Microsoft accounts are generally used in Windows devices, but how many are linked to Google accounts? Because they let you create your account with a Google Email and sync all your Google stuff to your Microsoft account. Organizations still use Google more, look at statistics before you make guesses.

 

If they instead of targeting your general user go for the tin-foil wearing minorities they will never get the numbers that other browsers have. Edge barely has more usage than IE, coming in at 2% to 5% of the share, although some sites report that IE still has more users than Edge.

 

It is Microsoft that needs to bend and bring change, not the biggest player in the market. How do you ever suppose that would work? If they follow the decision of not doing it this is as good as finished.


Wake up, either they have the option or this will be just like the current Edge, a tool to install Chrome.

Oh, and if you're not sure: I'm currently consulting for a US based health company that works with Microsoft very heavily and they still use the Chrome browser. Think what you will of that.

Google is ahead? ahead on what exactly? stealing people's information? yeah you're right about that.

Google integration is not needed, also all the facts and bad reputation of Google prove it.
first Google should add Microsoft sign in to their Chrome browser.

I don't make guesses, organizations use Google for what? lol
Microsoft has the business and office365 plans. after Microsoft organization can turn to Apple. but wait, if that is the case then Microsoft should add Apple ID sign in to Edge too? next one is gonna be Facebook for sure, cause there are 2 billion Facebook accounts.

@Elliot Kirk I think Chrome's and Android's usage numbers alone show that the great majority of people are not concerned about Google. The people here who think it's the other way round (let alone 99%) should get realistic.

 

It's perfectly fine if you don't want to use anything from Google. But going so far as to reject the option of people signing in with their Google account is ridiculous. If you don't sign in with a Google account, nothing is sent to Google. You don't need the Google sign-in code to be located to an external module or an extension or anything like that, that's paranoid nonsense. The way I see it, if Microsoft decides to cater to that kind of extremism it will do the browser more harm than good in terms of adoption. Only a tiny minority of people (face it) would refuse to use Edge for the simple fact that somewhere inside the code there is a piece of code that allows you to use a Google account - code that is not run if you don't choose this option. However, more people may give Edge a chance if they can use their Google credentials.

 

Also, the demand that Microsoft should only do this if Google does it first is childish. If Microsoft wants to improve their browser experience for other people and they think adding *optional* Google sign-in does just that, then there is absolutely no reason to wait for Google to come around to that first.

 

Personally, sign-in with Microsoft credentials is enough for me, so I don't need Google sign-in. But if Microsoft thinks there is a demand for it, they should listen to their *broad user-base* that goes beyond only this thread and absolutely go for it.

 

P.S.: There is absolutely no way in hell that there are more Microsoft accounts in active use out there than Google accounts, sorry. Basically every single Android user outside of China has a Google account to access the Play Store, then there are Gmail users with iPhones and generally people who have a Google account (e.g. for Google Docs or Chrome) even without the Play Store requirement, so that adds many people *on top* of the two billions of Android users (I don't know if that figure includes Chinese devices, but probably not). Now, talking about Microsoft account holders (personal MSA, that is), who do we have? 900 million Windows 10 devices, of which we don't know how many have a Microsoft account, but definitely not close to all. Then Outlook.com users, Skype users, of which there are fewer than Gmail and the Play Store. Sorry, you need to get real here.

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Given that Google Chrome browser continues to top both desktop and phone browser usage stats each month with around 2/3 of the market, while Edge is in low single figures, it makes sense to do anything you can to attract Google Chrome user if Edge is ever going to be the serious competitor you want it to be.

 

For me, I have one reason for Google account integration in Edge, which dictates what I'd want integrated and what not. I require my primary browser on my Windows 10 desktop to integrate with my primary browser on my Android (8) phone with respect to syncing favourites, passwords etc, and for each to be able to send tabs to the other easily. I also don't want to use Google Chrome on my desktop. However, I will not even consider using Edge on my phone, period, because it uses controls at the bottom of the screen and I HATE bottom controls, and will not use an app with bottom controls, So, as things currently are I use Firefox on  both phone and desktop ... but am concerned that the Android Firefox preview shows that they are intending to go to bottom controls as well in the not so distant future. Now, if desktop chromium Edge could sync with my Google account to (only) the extent needed to be able to sync via that with the Android Google Chrome for favourites, passwords, maybe history and open tabs, and for the two to be able to send tabs to each other, that would put Chromium Edge in contention for being my desktop browser. Without that, so I could use desktop Edge with Android phone Google Chrome, unless your Android Edge team move to top controls only, or add an option for top controls only, desktop chromium Edge is out of contention for me whatever else you do to it. For me to even consider desktop Edge it MUST sync (and sync, not just one off import) favourites, passwords, open tabs etc with some acceptable Android browser that does NOT use bottom controls, the two main options being Android Firefox and Chrome so therefore limited syncing with either a Google or Mozilla account.

@Elliot KirkElliot one of the things I hope the Edge team is keeping in mind here is the Chrome sign-in debacle last August/September. I'm not anti-Google but they broke a lot of trust and good will with that situation. Because of this, I think it's important that it's not even possible to sign in to Edge with a Google account. Also, being able to sign-in to Edge with a Google account could reinforce the idea that Edge is just Chrome with a new coat of pain (I personally don't believe that but there are a lot of critics saying that, please don't give them more ammunition). User trust and confidence is so important these days, especially when it comes to matters of privacy, please don't allow Google account sign in with Edge.

(Google responded to the backlash last September by adding a switch to Chrome that is off by default, but this is a half measure and they didn't answer lots of the questions people had about this situation. Here is Google's blog post about it https://blog.google/products/chrome/product-updates-based-your-feedback/ )

@Elliot Kirk 

Here's the thing - if you want google browser experience, just use Chrome.
Not that difficult.
I am signed into my Google account on Edgeium and can still access everything I need to, but I'm signed into Edge with my Microsoft account. It's the best of both worlds really. I got like 97% of my data pulled over to Edgium from the Chrome data import, so I don't feel at all like I wish I could sign into my Google account in the browser. I'm using my Google services just fine being signed into the various web pages. :\

This sounds like such a waste of resources. If people want a google browser/ a browser that uses google sign in, they can easily open a chrome browser. This isn't going to get anyone to switch, and I'd rather see devs and community focus on making a great browser that stands on its own with as few google services as possible. @Elliot Kirk 

I do understand why some people are voting against this, but honestly if this feature is not going to be implemented after all, then you guys really need to improve the Edge browser on Android. The user Experience is not great at all, it lacks several animations (specially on tab switching,) it doesn't have a tab groups option even in the flags and the sync itself with the desktop Edge isn't working yet. Till this day Chrome is still the best Android browser and it would be really nice if Edge would catch up with it. The way it is now, being able to sync between Chrome on Android and Edge on desktop would be very useful imo.

@tomscharbach the extension idea is awesome indeed! It would please everyone!

Have to chip in here too. I also would prefer that you do not integrate with Google Services. There is always option to just simply login to Google services through webpages for GMAIL etc. I think something google related to be built-in the browser would rather have a negative impact on Edge.

@Elliot Kirk Adding the ability to sign in with Google account, would having all the efforts of creating a great browsing experience be eliminated. And all the hard work of making a the new microsoft Edge a pure Microsoft browsing experience. If a user wants to use a browser with their G account Chrome is available, but brining this idea of let's integrate Google services into the new Edge will have potential problems. Google is first an advertising company and does not care about how a user's data is used. What is the point of using the new Edge if at the end Microsoft makes a 180 degree turn and reintegrates Google services. 

 

There are better features and better use of the engineering  team's time than integrating Google back into the browser. Features like redesigning the UI including the settings menu, the favourites menu and features that are being asked for and will benefit the experience.  The simple fact is if a user wants Google in their browser Chrome is available, even if Chrome integrates or allows sign in with MS account which is highly unlikely; this deters the use of Edge, including this idea will push people to Chrome and will not give a good incentive to use Edge.

Microsoft=Edge

Google=Chrome

Microsoft DOES NOT Equal to Google.

Well said.

@Elliot KirkI think we made it pretty clear that the majority of us insiders do not want any integration with Google services. Now I can't know what not insiders think.

Letting people sign-in with 3rd party account to synchronize stuff may be ok, but just if this does not affect the browser experience of other users.

It may be something that could be added in the future, if many other people demand for this feature.

Totally Agree with you @Msenusi211!

Para mi es una completa tontería agregar esta opción, si alguien quiere usar los servicios de google, pues entonces instalen Chrome, este es un servicio de Microsoft, y como mencionaron anteriormente por que agregar opciones que tanto trabajo les costo retirar. Para colmo esas personas que piden esa opción tal vez usen el navegador por un tiempo y no más. Existe la opción de crear una cuenta Microsoft con Gmail, tanto problemas se hacen en hacer unos cuantos clicks y ya, pueden hacer uso de los servicios de Microsoft.

@_JxR_ 

If you use so many google services because you only want to use a Microsoft service, install Chrome and do not get into trouble, the people who use this service is because we simply do not like using google. If both your personal life and work using google then use you too. And if you both want to use then I leave the page for you to create a Microsoft account. And the key word here is also an option, the option to create a Microsoft account.

@_JxR_ 

For that there is the option to import content, apparently you don't know about that function. If you want to make use of Edge, because it only imports your passwords and favorites from Chrome to Edge, there is no need to start from scratch; it is a wide option that exists in all browsers for a quick migration, after importing your favorites and passwords you can make use of Microsoft Edge with all the important data you have in Chrome; there is no problem with the use you have in your professional or personal life, now both browsers use the same engine.

Because you think that adding that option would "help improve Edge", the truth is that I don't see sense in your logic, you can quickly log in with a Microsoft account, you can create it with the same ID as your gmail account. Why synchronize with an account that the provider (Microsoft) doesn't have access to? It doesn't make sense, right?

Exactly!

Single way import is OK, but sync with Google? Why not make Chrome sync with Microsoft account??? That's what Microsoft did before, bring Microsoft into every where, not bring Google into every where...

@_JxR_ Since you are using Edge not Chrome, you can install a third party favorite sync extension, and bring your favorite data to every browser and devices by web.

 

It's Edge, not Edrome or Edgome, which not totally same with Chromium, multiple sync provider could lead bad user experience, such as: Extension sync missing in provider A, History will be analysis and sale by provider B without tell you about that, Password partial loss in provider C.

You don't think there will be more provider except Google? Nononono... If Google were there, why not Firefox, App, Opera, Vivaldi, Brave? 

 

There is no reason to add Google as sync provider, except Edge was totally abandoned and officially recommend user move their data to other company.

Yeah, well said :cool:

@HotCakeXAs much as I don't like it, he does have a point. At my school, most services have been transferred to google, mostly through google docs and Gmail. Even though we have office, only the tech geeks use it because the other kids and teachers simply don't know about or aren't familiar with Microsoft's online suite. I'm trying to slowly change that, but for the time being, Microsoft will have to provide some support for google services(which never really worked on edge to begin with, besides Gmail), or people won't have a reason to switch.

Well I said that because that's what I see,
online version is good for quick and temporary usage but universities, schools, businesses etc don't use temporary versions, or do they?
honestly Office has been available since forever.
I didn't know any other type of word processor such as Microsoft Word until i randomly tried a linux OS on a VM lol, i wasn't tech savvy or anything. hotmail or Live was my go to Email provider because of it's cool Live messenger and everything. Google? it's mostly known for its search engine between non tech savvy people, at least that's my experience :)

@Elliot Kirk alot of people have given the feedback to not re-integrate with Google...

 

I rarely ever use my MS account. In fact, I think I only have it to comment on things like this.

I agree that the DATA should not be stored with Google, because you've done alot of work to keep that data. But I would like to be able to sign in with a Google account... or a OneLogin... or a Facebook... or an Apple ID...? Better yet, why not implement it to support OAuth  where users can choose any service that supports the OAuth protocol... That would also make it easy to integrate with enterprise SSO solutions.

If that was a good thing, Google would make it happen to their Chrome browser a long time ago.

Microsoft has their own and better SSO solutions:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compare-all-microsoft-365-plans
SSO integration with my work Office365/Azure AD account is the main thing I want from the new Edge, but have been unable to get a solid answer on that yet.
They need to fix it before general availability

This is the reason why Google sign in is Not needed.

there are at the very least over 3 Billions Microsoft account! that's half of the Earth population.

(that report is from the beginning of 2019, by now, at the end of 2019, numbers are way higher)

There is definitely no shortage of Microsoft accounts. so if anything is going to happen, it should be on Google's side letting Chrome users be able to sign into Chrome browser using Microsoft account.

I personally believe we don't need to do anything with Google/worldslargestdataminers. Having Google allow users to sign in with their Microsoft accounts is the same as allow users to sign into MS with their Google accounts. Your giving Google your info.... Your giving Google your MS login info and anything else they can link to that from you and of you..... Your handing Google permission to have Your MS login ...... Do you Really want Google to have that???? And if you think your login is going to be safe with Google, you really need to think on it.. We're talking about the worlds largest data miner sell your soul for a buck Google......... NO Thanks! I'd rather stay as far as I can from allowing them any access......

Today i was reading this article on the Guardian with the title "How do I protect my online privacy from 'surveillance capitalism'?"

https://www.theguardian.com/world/askjack/2019/dec/05/how-do-i-protect-my-online-privacy-from-survei...

 

it mentions some great relatable points such as:

 

  • Google pioneered surveillance capitalism and it still dominates the market. According to Ghostery privacy extension-maker Cliqz, quoted in BOWM, Google collects data on more than 80% of measured web traffic, which is far more than Facebook or anybody else. It’s not enough to avoid Chrome and Google’s web properties because its trackers are on most other popular sites as well. 

 

  • Microsoft has put a lot of effort into de-Googling the Chromium code. Microsoft may get some personal data in return, but I already use Windows 10, Defender, Outlook, OneDrive and Microsoft Office as a paying customer, not as an unwilling victim. Also, Microsoft’s business is based on selling software and services, not, like Google’s, on surveillance. People who disagree are welcome to use Linux (free) or buy a Mac (expensive), but the US Defense Department and most major corporations are using Windows 10.

 

 

Nice Post!

Thanks,
wow it was a real win for them. they paid only $2.1 millions and got access to millions of people's health data in return, that's probably 10 times more valuable at least.
sadly Microsoft closed their HealthVault service that I used to use and they did it without creating another alternative. leaving the market open for the competitors. I really don't get them.
