Microsoft reveals Edge browser and new Launcher for Android

There's also an InPrivate mode for private browsing, Reading View, a Reading List, and more features that are also available for the Edge browser on Windows 10 machines. 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. Microsoft Edge is now available to both iOS and Android. Pressing on the new tab icon will show you a plus icon for a new tab, a preview of everything you now have open, along with options to close all or switch to InPrivate mode.

If you're using the Microsoft Launcher as your default, the app also offers free daily wallpapers from, you guessed it, Bing.

"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".

After multiple denials that it would happen or was under consideration, Microsoft confirmed today that their young Edge browser would be going mobile for users on iOS and Android. Not least of all Edge works best with Windows Precision drivers for your laptop's trackpad bringing the smoothest multitouch zoom and gestures on Windows 10.

If you read yesterday's rumor that Microsoft will be launching its Edge browser on iOS and Android soon and dismissed it as a pipe dream, we have some bad news for you: it's now official. Microsoft Launcher, which is based on Fluent design, allows you to further customize what you see.

But there is also bad news too. As of today, Arrow is graduating into Microsoft Launcher.

Sadly, Microsoft's mobile platform has been sputtering with little sign of life left but the company hasn't given up on the mobile space entirely. Microsoft has made another surprise announcement for Android Users. Initially Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android will launch only in US-English, but will ramp to other countries/languages as the preview expands.
