Microsoft Introduced Edge Browser for Android/iOS and Microsoft Launcher for Android

One week earlier, Microsoft announced its launch of Edge browser for Android and iOS platforms. Currently, the app is available as a preview version and can be downloaded from Google Play Store. Apple users should register first to avail the app and are allowed to download the app on their iPhones once the request is approved. Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android brings familiar features like your Favorites, Reading List, New Tab Page, and Reading View across your PC and phone, so, no matter the device, your browsing goes with you," VP Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Windows, and Devices Corporate said in a blog post. "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." The Edge app now operates only on Android and iOS smartphones but not on the tablets. Microsoft stated that it is planning to add the functionality for Android tablets,  iPads and some additional features like roaming passwords as well, at some future time. The app is available only in US-English and not in all languages at preview launch but Microsoft plans to bring it sooner. The company also launched Microsoft Launcher for Android, which allows users to continue their work on PC even if it is documents, photos and more. You can place your favorite people icons on the home screen as you do on Windows 10 with the help of Microsoft Launcher. Users can get access to top news, favorite activities, important events and more, just by swiping to the right on the Android screen. It also provides gesture support for Android users.
