Microsoft is adding a Math Solver feature to its Edge web browser that provides solutions to math problems with step-by-step instructions.

“The impact of Covid-19 has forced students to use more digital learning tools and incorporate their web browser into everyday learning,” a new post to the Microsoft Edge blog reads. “Students rely on the browser to help them find solutions to their studies, including math. To help these students on their learning journey, we are excited to announce that Microsoft Math Solver will be available as a preview feature starting with Microsoft Edge 91 stable.”

Math Solver lets students take a photo of a hand-written or printed math problem and get an instant solution that provides step-by-step instructions for solving it. An included mathematical keyboard also lets students type math problems, and there are quizzes, worksheets, and video tutorials to help them grow their math skills.

Microsoft Math Solver is now available in preview in Microsoft Edge 91 in the Canary, Dev, and Beta channels of the Edge Insider Program. To enable it, navigate to Settings and more (“…”) > More Tools > Math Solver.
