Microsoft Edge now comes to iOS and Android Platforms as preview

Microsoft announces Edge browser for Android and iPhone Microsoft Edge now comes to iOS and Android Platforms as preview
Kristine Garrett | 13 October, 2017, 09:02

As with Edge, the important part of the Launcher is the cross-device experience. Users that have Edge installed on both their mobile device and desktop PC will be able instantly to open a webpage they're viewing on their smartphone on their computer.

For all the problems Windows 10 Mobile may have, one of the advantages it offers over iOS and Android was deeper compatibility with Windows on PC. Microsoft says that this is the "most lovely, customizable, powerful launcher" that's available for Android devices. This includes things like Favorites, the Reading List, the New Tab Page and the Reading View.

"Microsoft Launcher represents the "graduation" of the 4.6-star rated "Arrow Launcher" project that was developed in our Garage - we're making a big update to Arrow and changing its name".

iOS users can test the preview app via Apple TestFlight, and Android users can sign up to test the preview app - available soon. The company is also graduating its Arrow Launcher for Android and renaming it to Microsoft Launcher. It's worth noting that you must be a Windows Insider running the latest Windows 10 Insider builds.

In the wake of today's surprise announcement about Microsoft bringing Edge to Android and iOS, the software giant has issued guidance to developers about how they should handle the new browsers. So, the company is extending the browser to the Android and iOS platforms in Preview (Beta) form.

Meanwhile, the Microsoft Launcher is already up in Google Play for U.S. users.

The app is available in beta for iPhone and Android phones. Besides Windows 10, Edge is also available on Windows 10 Mobile and the Xbox One console.

Microsoft has traditionally made it a little hard for users to switch default browsers, potentially warranting this campaign. Microsoft is, however, still committed to the EdgeHTML but due to several complexities, the decision to use the native web platform makes sense. Microsoft Launcher will let Android users continue viewing photos, editing documents, or reading websites from a mobile to a PC.
