Microsoft Edge browser preview now available on Android

Microsoft launched its Edge browser for Android and iOS devices as a preview last week. However, it was only available for iOS devices. And now the company has launched a preview for Android.

The Edge preview is available for download from the Google Play Store, and will support devices running Android 4.4 and up. The Android version of Edge has some of the key features found on Windows 10's desktop app including  Favorites, Reading List, New Tab Page, Reading View, among others.

There's also a feature called 'continue on your PC' which allows you to immediately open the page you're looking on your mobile device, right on your PC with a tap of a button.  For this feature to work, you PC should run Windows 10 Fall Creators update, which will roll out next week.

Microsoft Edge for Android features
  • From PC to mobile,  browse seamlessly across your devices, while your information syncs in the background.
  • Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by easily moving content between your mobile device and your Windows 10 PC.
  • Passwords and favorites are synced across your devices so your browser is always personalized to you.
  • Hub View makes it easy to find and manage your content like favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place.
  • Reading View allows you to reorganize the content on a webpage to make it easier to focus on what you’re reading.
  • Find, view, and share content effortlessly with a built-in QR Code Reader to pull up information at a touch of a button, Voice Search to use the web in more familiar ways, and InPrivate mode to keep your browsing data private.
Since this is a preview, we can expect more features to be added in the final release. You can download Edge Preview from the Play Store here.
