Less than two months ago, Microsoft released the Edge browser beta for Android with the promise to ease the transition from PC to phone and back. This feature known as "Continue on PC" is one of the highlights of the iOS version of Microsoft Edge as well. Today, this web browser gets out of beta for both Android and iOS users, dropping the "Preview" part from the name of the app on both platforms.

Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android comes with most of the features familiar to desktop users, including Favorites, Reading View and Reading List, New Tab Page, as well as Roaming Passwords across PC and phone. More than just allowing its users to sync passwords and bookmarks, Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS also provides them with the ability to go directly to the page they were browsing on the phone when moving to a PC that is in sync with the same Microsoft account. 

In addition to the above, a dark visual theme is now available for the mobile Microsoft Edge browser. Sadly, not all markets can get it right now. According to the official blog post that Joe Belfiore published earlier today, these are the markets/languages that can enjoy Microsoft Edge on mobiles starting today:

  • iOS: US (English), China (Simplified Chinese), France (French), and the UK (English)
  • Android: all the above, as well as Australia (English), Canada (English and French), and India (English)

Additional markets and languages will be added over time, but Belfiore did not mention anything more detailed than that.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
