Microsoft Edge comes out of beta on iOS and Android

If you are among the 4.4 percent that use the Microsoft Edge on the computer, good news: the browser went out of beta on iOS and Android. This means that you can synchronize bookmarks, passwords, and reading list between the PC and the smartphone.


Microsoft ported the main features of Edge for its mobile version: the screen of a new tab, with favorites and search on the web; the display read, which removes elements intrusive of the page; and the dark theme.



You can sync your bookmarks, reading list, and saved passwords between devices. The idea is to make the browsing experience more integrated: you can start on PC and continue on your smartphone, for example.

In addition, it is possible to send tabs from your smartphone to the PC. On the computer, you go to Settings > Phone and link your cell phone (you need to use the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update). Then, on the smartphone, you tap on the button on the bottom bar, select the PC, and the link is opened instantly on Edge for Windows.

Yet, you are missing two things. First: I would like to place the address bar at the bottom, as well as in Windows 10 Mobile — is more easy to access. And in the second place, the Edge is not yet available in Portuguese. Microsoft says that it will take you “more countries and languages over time.”

The Microsoft Edge can be downloaded on Android and iOS.
