Microsoft Edge Preview Comes to Android

Microsoft Edge Preview Comes to Android

Last week, when Microsoft announced its Edge browser for Android, it also revealed that the company has made a decision to give a new look and name to its already existing Arrow Launcher. Before Windows 10, the default browser of Windows was Internet Explorer, Microsoft killed it when it launched Windows 10 but could not do well with Edge as well.

The feature included in Edge for Windows 10 is reading list, New Tab Page, and the reading view will all be included in iOS and Android. Slowly they are moving on the Google's mobile OS platform.

The version of Edge for iOS was nearly immediately available through Apples TestFlight program but within just a few days that reached its limit of 10,000 testers.

Data Sync: Your favorites and reading list are synced across your devices, so no matter the device, your browser is always personalized to you. You should only download the browser if you are comfortable with a few bugs and crashes. You'll be sent a link that will take you to the Play Store page for Microsoft Edge, where you can install the browser.

So you can head over to the Google Play Store and grab the app to get started. Also, Microsoft's entire Office Suite is available on Android and iOS. The Microsoft Edge app for Android is available globally, not just in the USA, and allows users to seamlessly work back and forth between a mobile device and a desktop PC. But for now this will work only for those who have Fall creators update on their computer. An interesting thing about this is if the user has stopped reading in Windows 10 of Edge, he can continue the same in Android where he has left reading in Windows 10 browser. Also, it may not be as lively as the live tiles on Windows 10 Mobile, but it sure will help you make your Android phone much more personal.

The Edge has features like top feeds of news, your events for the day, your most used app and more.
