Microsoft brings its Edge browser to Android OS

Microsoft Launcher for Android is now rolling out to all users Microsoft Edge Now Available in Preview on Android Devices from the Google Play Store

It's now official that Microsoft's own mobile OS is on its deathbed breathing it's last.

Last week, when Microsoft announced its Edge browser for Android, it also revealed that the company has chose to give a new look and name to its already existing Arrow Launcher.

All of your saved bookmarks and reading list is automatically synced seamlessly once you log in with the same Microsoft account tied to your Windows 10 devices.

The browser is not going to be featured on Android with its EdgeHTML rendering engine but is to rely on Google Chrome's Blink engine, according to a report by Android Police.

Last week, the company released a preview version of Edge for iOS via test flight beta channel. The Microsoft Edge preview for Android is now live, but getting it is a little more complicated than simply going to the Google Play Store and performing a search for the browser.

Earlier this week, Microsoft all but admitted it had stopped working on new features and hardware for Windows 10 Mobile. We'll undoubtedly be hearing more about these apps once the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 drops, so stay tuned.

Microsoft Edge Preview for Android offers a range of features that you may have appreciated on its desktop client.

Microsoft Launcher has a feed which is accessible from the right swipe and it shows top news, important events, recent activities, photos and most frequently used apps.

This is the hottest attempt by the Redmont-based company to bump up its presence across the smartphone platform- by offering its apps to Android and iOS users when Windows Phone is officially dead. As a matter of fact, launching the iOS and Android versions of the browser is no assurance that it will dominate and push others aside; a lot still has to be done.
