Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS launches out of preview
Less than two months ago, Microsoft released the Edge browser beta for Android with the promise to ease the transition from PC to phone and back. Edge can sync your favourites, history, reading list and passwords to and from your Windows 10 PC. Microsoft claims that "hundreds of thousands" of people tested out the Edge preview, but only about 4.5 percent of PC owners use Edge in the first place, according to the latest stats from NetMarketShare. It's a browser for dedicated Edge users on desktop to carry their browsing experience with them when they shift to their phones.
The only thing that's missing from the Edge mobile browser is the ability to sync tabs, as pointed out by The Verge. It also features voice search, a QR code reader and a private browsing mode called "InPrivate". The overall design of the browser is similar between platforms, including a dynamic New Tab page with news headlines and an optional dark theme. This gives Edge's user interface an alternative appearance. Meanwhile, the Photos app on Windows 10 will also get a major update bringing features such as premium themes, sounds and filters to enhance videos, a favorites section and stickers. Similarly, the Android version is available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada (English and French), China, France and India (English).
Via the listing on Android's Google Play Store, Edge on Android has been installed over 500,000 times, with a total rating of 4.6 stars. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, but it requires iOS 9 or later iterations of Apple's mobile operating system.
