Microsoft today released a new update for its Edge browser for
all users on Android devices. The latest update pushes the app
to new version 42 and brings the features which have already
been tested on the beta version of the Android application.
Since the launch of Microsoft Edge, the default Windows 10
browser hasn’t been able to garner much market share which lead
the Redmond Giant to release the browser on rival platforms iOS
and Android. The company has been regularly adding new features
to the Edge browser keeping it on par with Windows 10 devices.
The latest update to the Edge browser comes with support for
school and work accounts since the company feels the Android OS
is becoming more popular with schools and with the support for
school and work accounts, Microsoft is slowly working on
increasing the market share of its Windows 10 default browser.
The company has planned more new features which should be
arriving as part of testing program very soon for Android
users. The latest update also comes with parental controls for
the Edge browser giving more control to parents with family
accounts by allowing their children to view only those websites
which they feel are comfortable for children.
Microsoft has also made improvements to the document reading in
Edge by introducing support for books which can be directly
downloaded from the Microsoft Store. We expect the Redmond
Giant to add more features like bookmarks, highlights and more
in the upcoming updates for Microsoft Edge on Android devices.
The update also comes with the regular bug fixes and
performance improvements to the Edge browser making the feel of
the browser more snappier and fast on Android devices. As
reported this update is available for all Android users and can
be downloaded by going to the Google Play Store. Do let us know
your thoughts on the improvements made to the Edge browser in
the comments below.
