Microsoft Edge on Android arrives: Here's how to get it

Microsoft Edge on Android arrives: Here's how to get it

It will use Chrome's Blink engine for Android.

It's now official that Microsoft's own mobile OS is on its deathbed breathing it's last. The die-hard Microsoft fans can download the Edge browser from Play Store.

Earlier this week, Microsoft all but admitted it had stopped working on new features and hardware for Windows 10 Mobile.

Last week, the company released a preview version of Edge for iOS via test flight beta channel. Other things like favourites, reading lists, and bookmarks are also synced across devices.


I'm traveling today-I guess I really missed driving between Boston and Pennsylvania, so I'm doing it again for kicks-but I did download Microsoft Edge Preview on Android at a rest area in CT. What that means again is that you might come across bugs and instability that could affect its performance.

Another new feature is the Continue on PC that lets you view the photos directly on PC without making major changes to any of your devices. We'll undoubtedly be hearing more about these apps once the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 drops, so stay tuned. We'll link to the app down below if you want to play with it. The preview will take about 56MB of your phone space; but could take much more than that when the full version is finally out probably soon. 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.

Microsoft Launcher has a feed which is accessible from the right swipe and it shows top news, important events, recent activities, photos and most frequently used apps.

After Microsoft announced that Windows Phones are dead, its high time for them to move to Android. Now Microsoft is trying to get some user base for Microsoft Edge by releasing it to the 2 most popular mobile operating systems.
