Microsoft Renames Edge Browser on iOS and Android: Here’s What You Need to Know


Edge Browser

Microsoft Edge has a new name on iOS and Android ā€“ it’s now called “Microsoft Edge: AI browser.” This change in the name is not just for marketing; it reflects Microsoft’s effort to include artificial intelligence in all its services.

The updated App Store listing highlights the AI features in Microsoft Edge:

“Microsoft Edge, your AI-powered browser, comes with Copilot to make your browsing better. With the power of GPT-4, Copilot lets you ask questions, improve searches, get detailed summaries, and even create images with DALL-E 3. Microsoft Edge is a smarter way to browse, find, create, and shop while on the go.” The listing also displays pictures demonstrating the mentioned AI features in action.

While some of these features are found in other browsers, Edge includes them as part of its core functionality. In Edge, you can access Copilot with Bing Chat by tapping a button at the bottom. This feature can perform various tasks and respond to questions. Additionally, you have the option to use GPT-4 instead of GPT-3.5.

Is Edge Browser a True AI Browser? Edge Browser

There’s been some disagreement about Microsoft changing the name of Edge in its listings. Some argue that Edge is not truly an AI browser, stating that it’s just a browser with AI features. I have a different opinion on this. It’s not limited to AI features being available only when you open Bing or a specific site. With Edge, you can access AI with the push of a button, and some of these features interact with what’s on your screen, like providing article summaries.

While Microsoft might have more AI features in the works, I believe can already consider Edge as an AI browser.

Microsoft recently renamed Bing Chat to Copilot with Bing Chat, and they unified various Copilots under one brand. It’s clear that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s commitment to integrating AI into all Microsoft services continues to be a significant focus.

What Does 2024 has for AI? Edge Browser

Many people called 2023 the year of AI, and it’s not without reason. ChatGPT reached its peak performance, even though it came to the limelight in 2022. Bing started working with ChatGPT, and Google introduced Bard. Big technology companies are in a rush to bring AI to users and have their APIs used by other tech firms.

Windows 12 is going to offer even more AI experiences and features than Windows 11, which already includes Copilot.

In 2024, there’s a development on the hardware side with the introduction of NPUs (Neural Processing Units). These dedicated processors focus on handling the repetitive tasks that AI demands. Anticipate a surge in laptops and devices equipped with NPUs, with contributions from Intel Core Ultra processors and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Elite, both featuring NPUs.
