Microsoft Launcher for Android is now rolling out to all users

Microsoft previously released a preview version on iOS-actually, iPhone-only, first to Windows Insiders only and then, a few days later, to any interested party.

Microsoft is offering some cool features in the mobile version of its Edge browser.

Last week we told you about Microsoft's announcement and their plans to make their Microsoft Edge browser available on the iOS and Android mobile platforms.

The feature included in Edge for Windows 10 is reading list, New Tab Page, and the reading view will all be included in iOS and Android.

If you use Microsoft Edge on your Desktop/Laptop as your default browser this is great as you will be able to sync your bookmarks, history, reading list etc across devices. And now you can download the beta version for Android via the Google Play store. What that means again is that you might come across bugs and instability that could affect its performance. There is Continue on PC, which lets you pick up things from where you left off between your mobile device and PC. Cool as this tool is, only users with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update can enjoy or access it.




So you can head over to the Google Play Store and grab the app to get started.

Gesture customization. With deep customization for gestures, you can double tap to lock your phone, swipe up for app drawer and more.

Back in 2015, Microsoft introduced Edge as the web browser for its Windows 10 OS. With just a quick swipe-to-the-right, Microsoft Launcher offers a tailored feed of your important events, top news, recent activities, favorite people and most frequently used apps.

While Chrome fans and Microsoft critics will find it easy to dismiss these findings, NSS Labs note they did not receive funding from either party.

While the browser war intensifies, Microsoft can only continue to push its Edge browser further across popular operating systems if it wants to remain relevant and not be pushed out of the market.
