Microsoft rolls out Edge browser for Android and iOS

Microsoft rolls out Edge browser for Android and iOS

NetMarketShare published statistics of the web browsers market share for the month of September revealing that Microsoft Edge once again collapsed and Google Chrome is still the leading browser. For the Android and iOS version of the Edge browser, Microsoft won't make use of the same EdgeHTML engine.

To get the most out of the "Continue on PC" features, users will have to install the Fall Creators Update on Windows 10 however.

If you are a big user of the Microsoft ecosystem but own an Android phone, you will be happy to know that Microsoft has officially announced that the Edge browser and a Microsoft Launcher is coming to Android phones.

Have you tried the Microsoft Edge on your iOS or Android device? How nice! Today, we are also launching a preview release of our new Microsoft Launcher for Android.

Microsoft largely missed the boat on mobile and although it offers a mobile version of Windows 10, the company has shifted its focus onto delivering apps and services to as many devices as possible, regardless of platform. For now, both iOS and Android users can register for the application testing (HERE). The Hub View feature allows you to easily find and manage content like favourites, reading lists, history and books all in one place.

Meanwhile, the new Edge browsers for iOS and Android are described as "apps" for those devices.

Microsoft Launcher is a Windows Phone-like home screen derived from Microsoft's "Arrow Launcher" Garage project.

After listening to user feedback, the company has finally changed its stance and will implement an easier way to change your status in the new Skype apps. Microsoft explains: "From PC to mobile, you can browse seamlessly across your devices, while your information syncs in the background".

You can get the Microsoft Launcher preview here. It is only available in US English (sorry Brits) and it won't work on iPad or Android tablets for the time being. We think it's the most attractive (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available.

Some of the features of Microsoft Launcher is that it lets users swipe-to-the-right to access a tailored feed of important events, top news, recent activities and more.
