It’s true: Microsoft Edge is coming to iOS and Android

The Edge team finally did it, they extracted their browser from the Windows 10 operating system and are now ready to share it with the rest of the world.

Announced just a few moments ago, the Microsoft Edge browser is coming to iOS and Android, in Preview:

Beginning today, iOS users can test the preview app via Apple TestFlight, and Android users can sign up to be one of the first to test the preview app which will be available soon. Go here to sign up to test the Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android preview apps.

According to a post on the Windows Blogs, the Edge team has heard the request from avid Edge users on Windows 10 that they would like to take their web browsing experience from the desktop on the go with them.

One of the most common requests we hear from people who use Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 PCs is “we want our browser experience to move to our phones”. You spoke, we listened.

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. 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.

We’re currently downloading the browser for testing, but stay tuned for our review of the experience.
