Microsoft announced to bring its Edge Browser to Android and iOS following the official ending of the Windows Mobile OS. After being made available in preview form for roughly a month, the Microsoft Edge officially hits Play Store and App Store starting from today.
The Edge Browser is the follow-up of the universal Internet Explorer that shined on Windows 10 devices for a while now. The new mobile version of the app offers many of its familiar desktop/tablet features, including Favourites, Reading Lists and New Tab Pages.
Familiar Microsoft Edge features like the Hub allow users to organize the web in a way that makes it easier to find, view and manage their content on-the-go.
As far as features are concerned, the Microsoft Edge brings better integration for Windows users to iOS. For instance, there’s a “Continue on PC” feature that allows users to easily switch between their PC and iPhone.
Voice search will allow users to ask a question and have Microsoft Edge look it up in “more natural, familiar ways” than traditional searches.
Roaming Passwords are now on-board, giving users the ability to sync passwords cross platform on mobile and desktop. There’s also dark theme, offering a black desktop instead of the default white/grey one, which should be easier on some eyes.
The latest additions by Microsoft, like Edge and Cortana to Android and iOS will make it easier for Windows 10 users to have their existing smartphones play nice with their PCs.
