Microsoft is about to release a new browser for Android



Microsoft is about to release a new browser for Android


Modern smartphones allow you to surf the Internet freely and efficiently thanks to special web browsers. The most common on devices Android it is definitely Google Chrome. Microsoft, however, has something new in mind. While for many people it’s a little surprising that the company took so long to produce an Android version of Edge, the sudden release of this version of the browser, with no test build, is arguably more surprising.

Microsoft’s new browser for Android

Out of the blue, a preview version of Microsoft Edge appeared in Google Play, giving Android users a new option for browsing the web. The browser works largely as you’d expect and you can sync your browsing data between the devices. This means you can start browsing the web on your PC and easily pick up where you left off on your phone by syncing open tabs.

Other features found in this first version of Edge for Android include translation based on Bingtracking prevention, filtering Microsoft Defender Smartscreen and a choice between light and dark themes. There is, at least currently, support for browser extensions and it is unclear whether this will change or not. All that remains is to wait for the users’ opinion on this trial version of the US company’s Android browser, which will surely be improved over time with new features.
