Microsoft brings its Edge to Android and iOS

Microsoft brings its Edge to Android and iOS Microsoft brings its Edge to Android and iOS
Kristine Garrett | 13 October, 2017, 21:31

The Microsoft Edge browser is being released today in a preview state for iOS with the Android version slated to be available "soon" while the Microsoft Launcher preview is available starting today. We think it's the most attractive (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available. Again, the company is using similar strategy of luring customers in with features that enable them to resuming webpages on their Windows PCs when they use Microsoft Edge on mobile to push web pages.

We should note that the Continue on PC feature is only available when running the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. As a result, Microsoft Edge is based on the Chromium browser project for Android and WebKit engine on iOS.

There are countless launchers available for your Android device and Microsoft offers one as well. Still, a lot of promised Windows 10 features, including something called Timeline that lets you pick up any task from any device on Windows 10, has yet to materialize. The company now wants whoever is still left on Microsoft's browsers.

Microsoft hopes bringing Edge to the world's two leading smartphone ecosystems will increase the browser's lowly market share. However, the company does state that, as far as compatibility is concerned, it should be identical to the latest version of Chrome available on Android. Microsoft Launcher was built using Google's Fluent design language and gives you quick access to your recent photos, documents, and your oft-used contacts. How nice! Today, we are also launching a preview release of our new Microsoft Launcher for Android.

The new launcher also includes themes as part of the customization options including light, dark, and transparent. Microsoft took that approach to "deliver the best possible security, accessibility, battery life, interactivity", plus "pure raw performance" on those platforms, he added.

With the Microsoft Launcher, open your other files and web pages on your desktop so you can do more work.
