The past week have been an agitated one for Microsoft. The US company finally announced the death of the Windows mobile and that their next focus in the area will be developing apps and content for the established Android and iOS.
Following this premise, Microsoft have announced their Microsoft Edge browser for both OS. Previously the app was only for those signed in the Insider program, last week announced the availability to everyone.
The Microsoft Edge have made its way to the Apple app store last week, stating that Android availability would come a few time later. Today the app was dropped in play store, and any interested can download and try just now.

Among the Edge browser capabilities are:
- Continue on PC: Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by seamlessly moving content between your mobile device and PC.
- Data Sync: Your favorites and reading list are synced across your devices.
- Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple.
- Reading View: Reorganize the content on a webpage to make it easier to focus on what you’re reading.
- QR Code Reader: Easily read QR codes at the touch of a button. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen.
- Voice Search: You can now use your voice to search the web. Ask a question or speak a prompt to use the web in more natural, familiar ways.
- InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn’t saved on your PC once you’re done.
