It's only available to individuals in Microsoft's ongoing preview program (it's easy to become a Windows Insider, however).

Edge Preview Availability The new Edge browsers for iOS and Android are described as "apps" for those devices.

Microsoft's own mobile platform isn't quite dead, but it's pretty obvious at this point that, even for Windows fans, it's not going anywhere fast.

Microsoft Launcher for Android features the Continue on PC functionality for streamlined workflow from your mobile device.

Seeing as this is a preview build of Edge for mobile devices, there are some features that it's launching without.
