We reported earlier that Microsoft Edge browser will soon be compatible with iOS and Android devices. Presently, the Edge for iOS Preview version is now available and can be installed by all iOS users. This version was initially available for only Windows Insiders which is more like a beta testing community but Microsoft has now removed the restrictions. This was made known today by Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore in a Tweet.
Our next step in connecting Windows 10 PCs to your Android/iOS phones!
HEY INSIDERS.. sign-up to install now!
