Microsoft Edge Android App Coming Soon For Windows Insiders

Microsoft Edge Android App Coming Soon For Windows Insiders

There's no easy way to, for example, switch from reading a site on your PC to reading it on your phone or vice versa.

Note that these are not full versions of Edge. For the most part, the mobile OS giants tend to keep their browsers for their specific OSes, with the exception of Chrome.

Android users can sign up to receive an Edge preview notification when it arrives in Google Play Store. The Edge iOS app taps the WebKit rendering engine, while the Edge Android app uses the Blink rendering engine of the Google Chromium project.

To get the iOS browser, users will need both a Windows Insider and an Apple TestFlight account. The Edge browser simply isn't as popular as Chrome or Firefox.

Currently, syncing is limited to favorites and items on the reading list. Tab and history syncing will be added later.

On Android, Microsoft is rebranding the Arrow app launcher as the Microsoft Launcher. As of today, Arrow is graduating into Microsoft Launcher.

Microsoft also announced a preview build of the Microsoft Launcher, which is the next evolution of the Arrow Launch that is now available for Android devices.

"We think it's the most attractive (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available", Belfiore said. This is most visible with their Continue on PC feature that is available in Insider Preview builds and the upcoming Fall Creators Update. "We verify this by opening Edge (PC) and checking UA". For example, you can take a photo from your phone and then see it on your Windows PC instantly.

The iOS version isn't officially out yet but can be accessed via the iOS app Test Flight program. Check out Microsoft's blog post for more.

For those who don't get a "launcher", let's understand what a launcher is first.

A big advantage of using Microsoft Edge on Android and iOS for existing Windows 10 users would be the ability to push web pages across the devices and instantly continue working on different platforms.
