Microsoft Has Added Another Advertisement Inside Of Windows 10

For those who are keeping count, Microsoft is back with another system tray ad. This one urges Chrome users to install the "Personal Shopping Assistant" extension, which lets you add product pages and get notified on price changes. Things aren’t looking too bright, thoughآ—just hit up the Chrome extension’s review page, which is linked in the article. In other news, Microsoft is laying off 700 employees next week.

Microsoft has started to advertise its Personal Shopping Assistant (PSA) extension for Chrome to Windows 10 users. Users of Microsoft’s latest operating system now receive a small notification above the Chrome icon stating, "Quickly compare prices online. Get Microsoft’s Personal Shopping Assistant for Chrome". Previously Microsoft mainly focussed on convincing Chrome users to switch to Edge. It appears that this has been unsuccessful and the software giant now hopes to convince Chrome users to at least use an extension developed by Microsoft. Microsoft’s Personal Shopping Assistant is an extension available for Chrome, Edge, Opera and Firefox. The extension is able to organize visited product pages, favorite products, notify users on price changes and compare products across sellers. It’s currently installed by nearly 11,500 users.
