Microsoft Edge Preview for Android Hits Google Play

Microsoft Edge Preview for Android Hits Google Play

In that manner, the introduction of Edge browser on Android and iOS makes sense. "Continue on PC" is a feature that synchronizes your Android and Windows 10 PC. The Edge for Android and iOS come with Hub View, Reading View, QR-code reader, voice search and more.

Edge is also included in Windows 10 Mobile but the mobile version of OS is also dead which again leaves Edge in the dark.

If you use the same Microsoft Account in the Microsoft Edge app on Android that you use with Windows 10 then you will be able to push content to those devices.

For now, according to Softpedia, the Android version of the Edge browser is still in preview, but is available for download.

The version of Edge for iOS was nearly immediately available through Apples TestFlight program but within just a few days that reached its limit of 10,000 testers. You should only download the browser if you are comfortable with a few bugs and crashes. Although Microsoft Edge has more than 330 million monthly active users but even if a user opens the browser once in a month, it counts as an active user. You can sign in to sync your bookmarks or you can use it locally without signing in.

Another new feature is the Continue on PC that lets you view the photos directly on PC without making major changes to any of your devices. You'll need to go through Microsoft instead, and the company has set up a new preview page that you can use to request a download link. But for now this will work only for those who have Fall creators update on their computer.

The browser is not going to be featured on Android with its EdgeHTML rendering engine but is to rely on Google Chrome's Blink engine, according to a report by Android Police.

Microsoft Launcher has a feed which is accessible from the right swipe and it shows top news, important events, recent activities, photos and most frequently used apps.
