Microsoft Edge arrives on Android and iOS for Windows Insiders

Microsoft Edge arrives on Android and iOS for Windows Insiders

Microsoft on Thursday announced expanding its Edge browser to the mobile platform.

The Microsoft Edge app for iOS and Android will come with similar features to the Windows version.

This will mean that you will be able to easily share web pages from your PC to your smartphone and vice versa, enabling you to pick up where you left off. The Redmond giant has added "Continue on PC" feature to it which will allow users to conveniently send an image or link from their phone to Windows 10 PC.

Microsoft's Windows Mobile wasn't going so well, and now we have seen its end, so what you do with the remaining mobile assets, bring it to Android and improve whatever already exists. On the Android, the Edge browser will use the Chrome's Blink engine, while on the iOS, Safari's WebKit engine will be put to use.

Addressing and appreciating the customization options on Android, Microsoft has introduced Microsoft launcher for Android.

Microsoft largely missed the boat on mobile and although it offers a mobile version of Windows 10, the company has shifted its focus onto delivering apps and services to as many devices as possible, regardless of platform. For Android users, it will be available soon via Play Store's early access. For now, both iOS and Android users can register for the application testing (HERE). However, the initial build supports only English language and is yet to get many other features. Rather than show who was online or active, Skype acted like a text message app in that it wouldn't show the activity dot (green dot), and assumed everyone was always active.

You can download the Microsoft Launcher (Arrow launcher) from here; it's in beta stage thou. Once Arrow Launcher gets its major update, the name will change as well. In addition, the previews aren't available yet for iPads and Android tablets. People using Arrow Launcher Beta will get the launcher today, and once it is out of preview, users will be automatically upgraded to it. We think it's the most handsome (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available. Swipe right for a tailored feed of important events, top news, favourite people and frequently used apps.
