Microsoft Edge preview arrives on iOS, coming soon to Android

Microsoft announces Edge browser for Android and iPhone Microsoft Edge preview arrives on iOS, coming soon to Android
Kristine Garrett | 13 October, 2017, 13:20

Microsoft Edge is the default browser present in Windows 10 OS for PC as well as Mobile.

All of this is pretty basic, but the main differentiating factor here is Microsoft Edge's integration with Windows 10.

Since this latest mobile incarnation of Microsoft Edge is now in beta, you won't find tab syncing (which is a big omission) or support for pen highlighting (which would come in handy with an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil).

In addition to being in preview, Edge on iOS is now only available in U.S. The first preview of Edge for Android will be released soon, but will be limited at first to United States residents in English. It's literally the ideal browser for Windows 10 users who already use Microsoft Edge on their PC, but for the rest of us, it still has a long way to go - both on the phone and the desktop. At the bottom of the screen you'll find an icon for Continue on PC (phone with arrow), an Icon for all tabs (boxes), and settings option (three dots). This app, also available in preview, replace the user's home screen with one that can be controlled and customised as they see fit.

Microsoft has just released a beta preview of their Edge browser on iOS and Android. iOS users will be able to access it through Testflight, while Android users can attain it through Google Play's app testing service.

What do you think of the new name? However, to use the browser optimally, one will have to log in using their Microsoft Account.

The article does indicate that there's a big update coming though so be prepared to receive that update notification from the Play Store soon. Microsoft Launcher also supports the Continue on PC functionality found in the Microsoft Edge Preview. Edge doesn't have the benefits of widespread PC usage or deep integration in a mobile OS, so there might not be much space for it on smartphones.

You can join the Microsoft Launcher Preview here.

In terms of customisations, Microsoft Launcher will let you set colors, themes and more.
