Microsoft Edge for Android preview is now available in the Play store

The version of Edge for iOS was nearly immediately available through Apples TestFlight program but within just a few days that reached its limit of 10,000 testers. Microsoft says Edge will also sync a user's favourites and reading lists across devices.

In this regard, the security of the OS is not particularly relevant and the report found that there was no significant difference between users on an open platform like Windows 10 and closed platforms like Windows 10 S or Chrome OS.

I'm traveling today-I guess I really missed driving between Boston and Pennsylvania, so I'm doing it again for kicks-but I did download Microsoft Edge Preview on Android at a rest area in CT. "The Microsoft Edge Preview for Android is now available for download in the Google Play Store", the message states. You should only download the browser if you are comfortable with a few bugs and crashes. Your browser and data will be synced, allowing you to continue where you left off from in any of your device.

If you had signed up to be notified about Microsoft Edge's availability on Android, you may have received an email from the company.

The application is not yet launched officially, and for both the platform it is an unreleased app, but the difference is that on iOS platform an only limited number of users can use it while on Android anyone can download it. Cool as this tool is, only users with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update can enjoy or access it.

Find the app in the Play Store below. The preview will take about 56MB of your phone space; but could take much more than that when the full version is finally out probably soon. Microsoft has noted that some features still need to be added, but my short time with the Android app has been pretty smooth so far.

The Edge has features like top feeds of news, your events for the day, your most used app and more. Now Microsoft is trying to get some user base for Microsoft Edge by releasing it to the 2 most popular mobile operating systems.
