  • Microsoft Launches Edge Browser For Android And iOS Devices

The company announced the mobile version of its Internet Explorer successor has passed through the preview stage and is now available for download on Android and iOS. While Microsoft allowed everyone to test the app on Android, the Edge for iPhone was only available to the select beta testers.

I just wrote about the recent update that removed the preview tag yesterday, but neglected to mention the status change. This feature known as "Continue on PC" is one of the highlights of the iOS version of Microsoft Edge as well. You can grab it from the Play Store right away. iPhone users need not feel left out, as the Redmond-based company has also rolled out the Edge browser for Apple's iOS.

KitGuru Says: Considering Microsoft has had its Edge browser out on desktop for the best part of two-and-a-half years, it's been quite slow to the mark with mobile. Do let us know if you come across any new features in the Windows 10 version of the app.

Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple. It's a browser for dedicated Edge users on desktop to carry their browsing experience with them when they shift to their phones. We'll be looking forward to seeing more features, such as tablet support, and even tab syncing.

Microsoft today has officially released its Edge browser on iOS. It also features voice search, a QR code reader and a private browsing mode called "InPrivate".

Microsoft launched the Edge browser for public testing in October. And Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android is another step in that journey.
