Microsoft Edge now available on Android and iOS

Microsoft Edge now available on Android and iOS

The addition of Edge is an important piece of Microsoft's new mobile strategy.

Having been a beta-only affair for quite a while, you can download the Microsoft Edge browser for iPhone straight from the App Store. The app is meant to provide users with a smooth transition from their iPhone or iPad to their Windows 10 PC through its "continuous browsing experience", as per Apple Insider.

Microsoft Edge works across device categories.

Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple. Microsoft Edge for mobile is mainly useful if you tend to resume a lot of browsing from a phone to a Windows 10 PC. Roaming Passwords are now on-board, giving users the ability to sync passwords cross platform on mobile and desktop. Therefore, users still can not share tabs between a Windows PC and an iPhone or iPad. Current tabs do not sync now, but that feature is apparently on the way in a future update.

QR Code Reader: Easily read QR codes at the touch of a button. The private browsing feature won't retain history items, temporary Internet files and cookies.

Harvey Weinstein Is Being Sued for Sex Trafficking
Neither a representative for Bob Weinstein nor The Weinstein Company immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment. The alleged "value" in this case was the potential for a role in one of Weinstein's films, according to the complaint.

The Photos companion app will soon become available for Windows 10 testers, but it might be a while before it's ready for public release. Since then, it has added notable features to the app. This basically allows users to have their login details and passwords shared on multiple devices.

Next up is a new dark theme that comes to the mobile browser after first showing up on its PC counterpart.

Some users will have to wait a while before the Edge app arrives in their region, however. Both help in ensuring longer working hours for users. Does the promise of "continue on PC" make you Edge to Microsoft's browser over the tried and tested Chrome?

Apart from English, the Edge browser is available in Chinese, and French. Furthermore, the app is still letterboxed on iPhone X. Voice search allows users to ask a question and have Microsoft Edge look it up in "more natural, familiar ways" than traditional searches.
