Microsoft Launcher offers 'Continue on PC' option for Android phones

Microsoft says Edge for Android and iOS will sync all bookmarks, favorites, history and reading list between your device and Windows 10 PC. Users that have Edge installed on both their mobile device and desktop PC will be able instantly to open a webpage they're viewing on their smartphone on their computer. Windows Insiders with an iPhone can already sign-up for the preview through Apple's TestFlight on iOS 11. As a result, Microsoft Edge is based on the Chromium browser project for Android and WebKit engine on iOS. "We think it's the most attractive (based on Fluent design), customisable, powerful launcher available".

One browser that has been conspicuously missing from Android and iOS devices - whether you care or not - is Microsoft Edge.

The new Microsoft launcher is, however, available on the Play Store but is also in preview.

Are you holding on to the Windows 10 Mobile dream? With this release, the company wishes to bring a Windows 10-like browsing experience to the mobile devices as well. Globally, Microsoft Edge has just a 5 percent share of the web browser market, while Chrome is dominating the field with a whopping 60 percent. The Microsoft Launcher preview is available starting today. Android phones allow users to customise their home screen with the help of applications called "launchers" so when you push the home button of your screen, the interface you see is the launcher. After all, the message from CEO Satya Nadella is about bringing work tools to as many platforms as possible.

Microsoft is taking a step to make bridging your life between your phone and PC a little easier, at least for Android users.

Since then the Garage team behind Arrow Launcher has steadily been updating the app and through its 2.0 and 3.0 it has become a solid option and my default launcher on the Galaxy S8. This launcher will give Android users access to their documents, photos and other files which will allow them to more easily transition between their smartphones and PC.
