Microsoft brings Edge browser to Android, introduces Microsoft Launcher

Microsoft announces Edge browser for Android and iPhone Microsoft brings Edge browser to Android, introduces Microsoft Launcher

Web browsers are one of the most important apps on any device. Also, if you stop reading a page on the Android version of Edge, you can pick up right where you left off on your Windows 10 version of the browser.

Windows 10's "Continue to PC" functionality remains at the center of this new push to mobile platforms that might finally help the company get some better numbers.

As suggested by the name, Microsoft Edge for Android is the mobile version of Microsoft's browser. We think it's the most lovely (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available. For the web developers, Microsoft has also detailed the Edge browser for Android and iOS.

Microsoft is rebranding its popular custom launcher app for Android to Microsoft Launcher from the familiarly known Arrow Launcher. The app is available in Preview for now, and it's open to any Android user. Some features like roaming passwords and support for iPads/Android tablets aren't available yet but will come in the future.

Oh, and, the address bar is situated on the top of the browser which will be a bit annoying if you are used the address bar being at the bottom on Windows 10 Mobile. According to Microsoft, it made this move because users were telling the company "we want our browser experience to move to our phones". The preview version is out for testing for both Android and iOS devices.

Microsoft has traditionally made it a little hard for users to switch default browsers, potentially warranting this campaign. Straight from the launcher, you can access your documents, calendar, documents, and activities with your Microsoft account logged in. Arrow started life as an experimental project produced in the Microsoft Garage, a kind of incubator for new apps. Microsoft says the Launcher is based on their "Fluent" design concept and like most third-party launchers, includes several features to customize the look and feel. Microsoft's Continuum feature will also be available with the new browser.
