Microsoft Edge hits iOS and Android, ending any lingering need for Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft has announced a new version of the Edge browser is coming to iOS and Android.

The company says the app will enable Windows 10 users to sync their desktop browsing with their mobile use, picking up where they left off on either device.

It’ll work much like Safari on iOS and Chrome on Android. Edge will sync Favourites, Reading List, Reading View and more across your Windows 10 devices and smartphones.

In a blog post Microsoft said: “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.”

The experience for iPhone users can be tested today via Apple’s TestFlight platform. Android users can sign up to be among the first to access the preview.

Android Launder arrives

However, there’s a bonus for Android users with the launch of the Microsoft Launcher for Android.

The launcher, which brings quick access to Microsoft’s suite right from the homepage, is available in preview from today.

The standard Google apps are replaced by things like Outlook, Edge, Skype and the Office suite.

Microsoft has more or less halted development on Windows 10 Mobile, and there are seemingly no plans to release new phones running the operating system.

Recently, Microsoft’s senior program manager Brandon LeBlanc, replied to a frustrated user claiming it continues to “exist,” but major updates are surely a thing of the past.
