Microsoft Edge is finally live on both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. You might remember we told you a while back that Microsoft Edge was being tested out on both mobile platforms. You had to have an invitation in order to try out Microsoft Edge on your mobile device. The beta testing did not appear to last that long, and now it seems the testing has ended. Read on to learn more about the Microsoft Edge browser finally coming to both iOS and Android.

Microsoft Edge Browser Officially Out of Beta

The beta version of Microsoft Edge was only put out about a month ago, and now it appears that the browser has finally gotten out of testing. The new Microsoft Edge browser is now live on both mobile platforms for free. This is going to be a very useful browser to you if you already have Windows 10 on your computer. That is due to the integration between Windows 10 and other Windows apps and products, such as the Microsoft Edge browser.

If you are someone that tends to go from your mobile device to your computer, then downloading the Microsoft Edge browser would be a good option. You will be able to quickly bring the page from your mobile device to your Windows 10 computer. That could be very useful for those websites that just do not load up properly on mobile. It could also be useful if you are shopping on your mobile device, but you actually want to checkout using the computer keyboard. There are several reasons and situations that might make the Microsoft Edge browser app worth while if you already are running Windows 10 on your PC.

Microsoft Edge Browser for iOS & Android Has Deep Integration

Speaking more on the Microsoft Edge browser integration with Windows 10, you will have easy access to all of your information. If you have Windows 10 and download Microsoft Edge browser, then you can access your reading list, favorites, e-books, and bookmarks. The only downside right now is that Microsoft has not added the ability to sync up the tabs from mobile to the computer.

This means that you cannot take your tabs from either device and share them with the other. So if you have tabs up on your PC, you cannot just get them right up on your Microsoft Edge browser on iOS or Android. We hope that the sync ability for the tabs will be coming eventually. Maybe in a future Microsoft Edge browser update we will see the tab sync ability.

The best news about Microsoft Edge browser coming to iOS and Android is that there is finally another option for mobile. Mobile browsing apps have been lacking in terms of quality and quantity. Most people either run Chrome, Safari or Firefox on their mobile devices. While these are definitely good browsers, the lack of many other options has always been annoying. It is about time that the Microsoft Edge browser make it onto iOS and Android. Like we previously stated, if you use Windows 10 already, you might be more inclined to check out this browser.

The deep integration between PC and mobile makes it a great option for people who go in between both platforms often. So tell us in the comments what you think about the release of the Microsoft Edge browser. Have you tried it out yet as part of the beta testing? Are you going to be using it as your main browser or just for when you need to go between your computer and mobile device? If you have already downloaded the Microsoft Edge browser let us know in the comments how it is working out for you.
