Microsoft announces Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Launcher for Android

The smart launcher identifies the trends in your smartphone usages and puts the most important things in front. However, it also provides more integration with Microsoft services; such as allowing the user to continue viewing pictures or webpages across both PC and mobile. Edge will sync Favourites, Reading List, Reading View and more across your Windows 10 devices and smartphones. "We think it's the most handsome (based on Fluent design), customisable, powerful launcher available".

The new "Microsoft Launcher", previously known as Arrow, is built specifically with your Microsoft "life" in mind.

Moreover, the edge will be powered by chrome's blink engine for Android, while on Apple's iOS needs third-party developers to have their browsers use safari's WebKit. Some features like roaming passwords and support for tablet devices will also be rolled out in future. With this release, the company wishes to bring a Windows 10-like browsing experience to the mobile devices as well. Microsoft even started a beta program for some specific users to test the browser.

The objective of bringing their browser to your iOS or Android device is to allow your browsing to follow you, regardless of device.

Microsoft today announced that it is bringing an Edge browser app to Android and iOS.

The app is available in beta for iPhone and Android phones. Microsoft Launcher, which is based on Fluent design, allows you to further customize what you see.

With Microsoft no longer pursuing its own mobile platform, the company has found itself in a peculiar position of trying to figure out how to support cross-platform scenarios.

As for the launcher, it's worth noting that it's actually a quite capable Android launcher that nicely integrates with all of the Google apps you probably use every day (calendar, Gmail, etc.).
