Microsoft Edge coming to Android and iOS

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.

The cross platform Edge support could be handy, but there's a major problem for Microsoft: Barely anyone actually uses the browser on their PCs anyway. We think it's the most attractive (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available. Users on the Arrow Launcher beta will automatically get the Microsoft Launcher.

"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". The iOS version of the web browser launched today to Windows Insiders, and we just got the chance to try the app on an iPhone.

Apart from Microsoft Edge, Belfiore writes that the company is releasing the Microsoft Launcher for Android, also in beta.

The mobile version of the default browser in Windows 10 will be an integral part of the upcoming Windows Timeline, a feature that will be part of the fifth feature update for Windows 10 that is expected next Spring.

Microsoft Edge is available on iOS through Apple TestFlight, and beginning today, Android users can sign up to test Edge on mobile when it launches in preview. That only leaves Microsoft with one option: concede defeat and bring its applications to the likes of Android and iOS. Right now, the feature is limited to favorites and reading list, but passwords and Microsoft Store purchases are said to be coming at a later date as well.

And while it basically proves we're living in an alternate, doomed timeline, the new (ish) browser looks like it has a cool idea or two baked inside.

Microsoft Edge is still in preview for both mobile platforms, to be on par with rivals such as Firefox and Opera, Microsoft will continue to improve the Edge browser before the public release.

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

Now, if only Microsoft would bring it to macOS as well.

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