Microsoft Launches Edge Browser for iOS and Android

Microsoft Launcher, Edge browser comes to Apple iOS and Google Android platform; here's how to enroll for beta testing

Microsoft has just announced the Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS, and the Microsoft launcher for Android phones.

Microsoft is rolling out beta versions of its Edge browser for iOS and Android. Continue on PC though requires you to have the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update which arrives on October 17th.

In order to try the preview version of the Microsoft Edge on an iOS or Android device, users need to join Windows Insider Program. You can go here to sign up to test the Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android preview apps.

Both Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge collapsed last month despite Microsoft is improving the browser with every new release of Windows 10. Firefox is third with 12.85 percent, and Microsoft Edge is the fourth popular browser with just 5.15 percent market share.

Both the Android and iOS have their own browser engines and it is also necessary for any third-party browser on the platform to use their respective engines.

The new Microsoft Launcher app for Android brings a range of new features to your Android device, the app is available as a preview on the Google Play Store. The Hub View contains a collection of all the bookmarks, reading list, history and downloads.

This allows users of the app to interact with their PC via their smartphone, launching applications and files from the home screen of the desktop.

The Microsoft Launcher is now in beta at present, though a gold standard release is expected very soon.

Talking about Microsoft Launcher it represents the "graduation" of the 4.6-star rated "Arrow Launcher" project that was developed earlier. Plus there's no support for Android tablets and iPad yet. Microsoft explains: "From PC to mobile, you can browse seamlessly across your devices, while your information syncs in the background". We think it's the most lovely (based on Fluent design), customizable, powerful launcher available. The launcher comes with a feed like Google Now that shows top news, events of the day, and most used apps. People using Arrow Launcher Beta will get the launcher today, and once it is out of preview, users will be automatically upgraded to it.
