Microsoft brings its Edge browser to Android OS

Microsoft brings its Edge browser to Android OS

Last week, along with the announcement of Edge browser for Android, Microsoft also revealed that the company is giving a new look and name to the Arrow Launcher.

This style of sharing is all part of Microsoft's push to build an ecosystem around your Windows 10 devices that can easily include Android and iOS mobile devices for cross platform/device sharing.

If you use the same Microsoft Account in the Microsoft Edge app on Android that you use with Windows 10 then you will be able to push content to those devices.

But you don't have to take my word for it: You can download the Microsoft Edge Preview for yourself from Google Play Store and check it out too.

In contrast, the Edge Browser's beta is not yet open to all on Android but Microsoft has opened up its iOS beta testing to all users. You should only download the browser if you are comfortable with a few bugs and crashes. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen. You can sign in to sync your bookmarks or you can use it locally without signing in. So, if your version is 4.4 and above, you can head to the Google Play Store to download it. We'll undoubtedly be hearing more about these apps once the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 drops, so stay tuned.

The Pakistan soccer federation's "offices and its accounts remain in control of a court-appointed administrator", FIFA said. The decision to suspend Pakistan's membership was taken by the bureau of the FIFA Council and was implemented immediately.

So if you did sign-up to be notified about Microsoft Edge on Android, you probably received an email message today announcing its release.

Another new feature is the Continue on PC that lets you view the photos directly on PC without making major changes to any of your devices. It will use Chrome's Blink engine for Android.

This is the hottest attempt by the Redmont-based company to bump up its presence across the smartphone platform- by offering its apps to Android and iOS users when Windows Phone is officially dead.

One of the most impressive features of Microsoft Edge is Cortana integration.
