Microsoft today pushed out a new update for its Windows 10’s
default browser Edge on Android and iOS. The update is
available for users who have signed in to the beta program of
the Edge browser on their respective devices.

Microsoft to get Edge popular among users and increase its
market share had released the browser on rival platforms iOS
and Android last year.

Today’s update to the Edge browser contains parental controls
for Android users. The latest beta version 42.0.0.2025 is
available for download for users who have signed into the beta
program. With the new parental controls, Microsoft has given
parents the option to enable special rules for their children
in terms of what they can download.

The beta update also comes with improvements to the book
reading support which was released to the Android users some
time ago. The update also fixes some bugs and improves the
performance of the app.

Microsoft also updated their Edge browser for iOS users with
some new features. The latest update has pushed the app to new
version 42.1. The update comes with a new and redesigned hub
which now allows to group favourites along with reading lists,
downloads and more.

The company has also rolled out some UI improvements for Edge
users on iPad which now comes with support for command key on
the iPad Pro keyboard. With improvements to the command keys,
iPad users will now be able to see supported shortcuts while
browsing.

The update is available for Android and iPhones, but you may
need to join the TestFlight program to download Microsoft Edge
beta on iPad. Microsoft would be rolling out the new features
introduced in the beta app to the stable version of the app
after successful testing in the coming days or weeks.

For being able to test the new features and improvements,
Microsoft is requesting users to provide feedback on the latest
updates. The feedback from testers helps Microsoft fix any
issues before rolling out the update to all Android and iOS
users.
