Microsoft Edge for Android preview is now available in the Play store

Android

As promised, Microsoft has just released the preview of Edge browser for Android in the Google Play Store. To start using the Edge browser on your Android device, you must first sign up for the preview/beta here and then download the app from the Play Store.

From the first impressions, Microsoft Edge on Android is amazingly fast and fluid. One biggest advantage of having Edge on Android is the continuous browsing experience for Windows 10 users across their devices.

All of your saved bookmarks and reading list is automatically synced seamlessly once you log in with the same Microsoft account tied to your Windows 10 devices.

Other features like Continue on PC are quite useful as well. With Continue on PC, Users can send links etc. between a mobile device and a Windows 10 PC (requires Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update).

The reading view makes it easier to focus on what you’re reading with any distraction.

Other exciting features include:

QR Code Reader: Easily read QR codes at the touch of a button. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen.

Voice Search: You can now use your voice to search the web. Ask a question or speak a prompt to use the web in more natural, familiar ways.

InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn’t saved on your PC once you’re done.

Find the app in the Play Store below. And don’t forget to send feedback to Microsoft!
