Microsoft Edge on Android now over 500K installs, more regions added

If you are a Windows 10 user with a fondness for using Microsoft Edge on your desktop, laptop, or 2-in-1 you might be happy to know that Microsoft's modern web browser has been released for iOS and Android.

Movies and TV updates are installed automatically on your PC, but you can force it from the Store link here.

We are pleased to announce that we're removing the "preview" label from our Android and iOS app. But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you're looking at right on your PC-or save it to work on later.

By making Edge apps available on non-Windows operating systems, Microsoft is hoping to do more than give Windows 10 users who use Edge a more convenient way to sync their bookmarks, tabs, etc., across devices. "Continue on PC" option is another feature which lets users send webpages to a desktop/laptop version of the Edge browser and then restore earlier pages or resume from the last page on the bigger display. You can see an example of both themes below.

On market and language availability, Microsoft Edge for iOS is available in the United States (English), China (Simplified-Chinese), France (French) and the UK (English).

Anyway, Microsoft is saying that Edge for Android is available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, India, and the UK.

Microsoft Edge brings better integration for Windows users to iOS.

We are committed to empowering people and organizations to achieve more. "But starting today, any iOS and Android users can download Microsoft Edge for their mobile device", Engadget reported late on Thursday.
