Microsoft Edge coming to Android and iOS

Microsoft Edge coming to Android and iOS

The upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will include a new feature called "Continue on PC" that will be supported in both the Edge browser as well as the company's launcher. Again, the company is using similar strategy of luring customers in with features that enable them to resuming webpages on their Windows PCs when they use Microsoft Edge on mobile to push web pages.

The Continue on PC button will summon a list of PCs where you can send the web page to, and the option to "Continue later" by sending web pages to the Action Center on all Windows 10 PCs.

"You can expect that, from a compatibility perspective, Microsoft Edge for Android will match the version of Chrome that is now available for Android", Lyndersay explains. However, the new launcher is available as preview. Users of the Arrow Launcher beta will automatically get switched to the Microsoft Launcher, starting today. Microsoft updated that project, changed its name and will now offer it to Windows Insiders to preview on their Windows 10 PCs. This beta is only for USA residents at this time and roaming passwords/support for tablets isn't available at launch but it will be coming in the near future.

Are you holding on to the Windows 10 Mobile dream? According to Microsoft, it made this move because users were telling the company "we want our browser experience to move to our phones". Are you using Arrow Launcher on your Android smartphone?

In addition to the browsers, Microsoft is also emitting a custom Launcher application for Android devices that lets handsets and tablets add Microsoft apps and PC sharing features directly to the Android launch screen.

Microsoft will officially release Edge on iOS and Android later this year.

At its core, Microsoft Edge on iOS is basically just like any other browser.

If you're interested in giving it a go, you can sign up to become a Beta Tester through the Google Play Store. It's also catching up in terms of browser plug-ins. "With Microsoft Launcher, your recent photos, documents and more can all Continue on PC as well".
