Microsoft Edge hits iOS and Android — but the promo video is kinda weird

Microsoft’s Edge browser is now out of beta on both iOS and Android, with the completed versions hitting the respective app stores today.

The headline feature is undoubtedly Continue on PC, which makes it easy for users to transfer their browsing activity from their phones to a desktop or laptop running Windows 10.

There’s also the opportunity for users to sync all of their Edge bookmarks, reading lists and stored passwords between devices. Current tabs do not sync currently, but that feature is apparently on the way in a future update.

The new app works on Android smartphones and tablets, but the iOS version is iPhone only for now.

To commemorate the release, Microsoft dropped a YouTube ad. Quite frankly, it’s a bit weird. It features people using their phones at times when they probably shouldn’t be. Like, when eating lunch, when playing with their kids at night, or riding down the middle of the road on a hoverboard.

Anyway, we’ll let you’ll be the judges…

The launch of Edge for iOS and Android comes as Microsoft moves away from developing its own mobile operating system. Now the company is focused on bringing the best of its software and experiences to the top smartphone platforms.

We’ve seen powerful versions of Office, Outlook and Cortana all make their way to iPhone and Android in recent years. Microsoft will be hoping Edge has just as big an impact.
