Microsoft Edge hits iOS and Android

Microsoft Edge hits iOS and Android

This morning, Microsoft's Edge app officially became available, exiting the preview stage on both iOS and Android.

I just wrote about the recent update that removed the preview tag yesterday, but neglected to mention the status change.

There's also the opportunity for users to sync all of their Edge bookmarks, reading lists and stored passwords between devices. But its key feature, perhaps, is Continue on PC, which lets you open the web page you're looking at on your phone right on your PC, or save it to work on later.

It seems the application has raised some interest at the very least, as in those short few weeks the app has generated more than 500,000 downloads on the Google Play Store.

As far as features go, Microsoft Edge brings better integration for Windows users to iOS. Are you a fan of the Windows 10 version? The process will require the devices to be on the same Wi-Fi connection and the mobile device would need to scan a QR code displayed on the Windows 10 PC.

Microsoft Edge browser now available for all Android and iOS users

Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple. Edge's only unique capability is the option of opening your current webpage on another device. The launch will help existing Edge users on Windows 10 to have a smoother browsing experience on mobile.

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. Even, they didn't announce any new Microsoft branded Windows smartphone this year.

Some users will have to wait a while before the Edge app arrives in their region, however.

Microsoft is getting really cozy with Android.
