Microsoft Edge is now on beta testing for Android OS
Remember Microsoft Edge, the replacement to the popular browser, Internet Explorer. Edge is available from Windows 10 onwards. With that, they wanted to step things up by giving the best experience to all their Edge users. This is where the Microsoft Edge for Android plays a huge role. Few days back, they rolled out the beta version of the Edge and it’s available in the Play Store for free. As it’s a early preview, there will be tons of bugs in the application itself, so get ready for that.
Features on the Microsoft Edge for Android
One thing Microsoft is focused on is seamless synchronization and continuous browsing. This is where things get interesting. They have features like Continue on PC, which allows you to browse from where you left off on your phone and continue on your PC or laptop. Reading View organizes the content on the site that you’re browsing on and gives you a simplistic viewing experience. Hub View, is for those who’d want to sync their reading list, favorites and history, all in one place. Not just that, it also has a built in QR Code that let’s you scan and know about it in just a matter of seconds.
It sure is promising. Yes, it has a lot of bugs but I do hope it gets fixed as time goes by. Edge also supports Voice Command but not Cortana for some weird reason. I suggest you bring that back too, Microsoft.
How to Download
Now, downloading is simple. But before that, make sure you have the latest android for your phone up and running. The app will support from Android 4.4 and up and it’s about 65MB. You can headover to Play Store by clicking here or you could head over to APK Mirror to download the APK and sideload it onto your android device.
I am not too certain whether I’ll be doing a Review or a comparison on the Edge. But if you want me to, feel free to let me know in the comments down below.
