Microsoft’s Edge browser comes to iOS and Android for beta testing

by John_A

Microsoft’s new mobile strategy? Bring as many of its services as it can to other platforms. That started with Microsoft Office and Cortana, and it’s continuing with its Edge browser, which is available in beta on iOS and Android today. For now, the early version of the mobile browser is only available to Windows Insiders, which requires a Windows 10 PC to sign up. iOS users will be able to access it through Testflight, while Android users can snag it through Google Play’s app testing service.

Edge’s minimalist style on Windows carries over to its iOS and Android mobile apps. The mobile browser also synchronizes with your experience on the desktop, allowing you to easily continue what you’re reading on a Windows 10 machine. And of course, bookmarks, reading list and passwords will get synchronized, as well. Aside from a built-in QR code reader, there’s not much differentiating Edge from mobile browsers, though.

Microsoft plans to officially release Edge on iOS and Android later this year. Today’s beta release also doesn’t support iPads and Android tablets, but the company says it’ll work with slates eventually.
