Microsoft announces Edge for Android and iOS, Microsoft Launcher
Oct 07 2017
The iOS version of Microsoft Edge is based on WebKit rendering engine by Apple whereas the Android version is based on Chromium.
Microsoft's answer: A version of Edge designed for Android and iOS mobile devices, created to integrate with its desktop equivalent just like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you're looking at right on your PC-or save it to work on later'.
Microsoft Edge is a web browser from Microsoft that has replaced the older Internet Explorer. However, you will have to use Windows 10 on your PC with Microsoft's Edge browser as your primary browser to do that. Over the past few years we've seen the rise of Microsoft made apps for Android and iOS.
The dependency may seem odd, as the Windows Insider Program is for PCs, but both of the Edge apps both have a "Continue on PC" capability that lets users "easily move content between your mobile device and your Windows 10 PC", according to this description. For Android users, it will be available soon via Play Store's early access. Microsoft will also sync favourites reading list between devices. It will soon be available for Android devices, but for now, you can explore it with the preview version. For now, we will just have to wait and see since Microsoft is focused on just getting the iOS and Android apps out first. Nevertheless, if you don't have the update, the browser and launcher will still work.
Essentially, if you are browsing some page on your phone and want to carry it over to the PC from the spot you left, you will be able to do that by simply choosing the "Continue to PC" option. Once Arrow Launcher gets its major update, the name will change as well. Launcher also makes your most relevant and recent feeds available with just a swipe.
It also acts as a way of getting you used to the new Microsoft Fluent Design language that will start to roll out to Windows 10 in the coming months.
Besides, those who are on the Arrow Launcher beta will automatically get the Microsoft Launcher.
