Microsoft Launches Edge Browser for iOS and Android

Microsoft launcher for Android Microsoft Launcher, Edge browser comes to Apple iOS and Google Android platform; here's how to enroll for beta testing

The idea of bringing these two applications to Android is to allow continuity between both devices and allow them to work in harmony. This will involve a phone number and installation of at least one app. This feature lets you use Edge mobile to push web pages to a PC so you can pick up where you left off. Microsoft will also sync favourites reading list between devices. This could be pictures, videos, photos, and documents. Microsoft Edge for iOS is available starting today in preview, with Microsoft Edge for Android available soon in preview.

On Android, Microsoft is using the Blink rendering engine, which has been sourced from the Chromium Browser project. This app is not quite out yet though, but you can sign up to test the Edge browser right now. Moreover, Microsoft also launched the Microsoft Launcher for Android in public preview. That's why it's surprising that it's taken this long to reach mobile platforms, but Microsoft has finally released on Android and iOS for Windows Insiders alongside the Microsoft Launcher app. The Edge browser for these operating systems simply feature Edge skin over their respective default web browser. In addition, the previews aren't available yet for iPads and Android tablets. These things will all be supported later on down the road. For now, we will just have to wait and see since Microsoft is focused on just getting the iOS and Android apps out first.

When Microsoft debuted its Edge browser to replace the faltering Internet Explorer, it pushed it hard, attempting to lock Cortana and Windows S to Edge exclusively. Moreover, it will be available only for the Windows Insider members as of now. Furthermore, Continue on PC will be available for the launcher as well.

In an interview on ZDnet, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows and Devices explained, "By far, the majority of our Windows 10 users have iOS and Android phones".

However unlike rivals such as Safari and Google Chrome, it had not been able to offer cross-platform browsing, until now. Additionally, turning off notifications for messages by tapping the new bell icon is an equivalent for the old "Do not disturb" status. Of course, it is hard to get the iOS version of the app but you can expect the APK of the Android version to be out soon.
