Microsoft Edge mobile browser for Android leaves beta


Microsoft Edge for mobile is mainly useful if you tend to resume a lot of browsing from a phone to a Windows 10 PC.

Unfortunately, after the initial setup, it seems that the mobile and desktop versions of Edge don't share history as Microsoft still hasn't added tab syncing.

Next up is a new dark theme that comes to the mobile browser after first showing up on its PC counterpart.

The Photos companion app for Android and iOS stands out the most, however, and it's among the hidden features of the new test build. Microsoft has yet to offer any official details regarding the upcoming app, but it should offer more information once it concludes the testing process. It's clocking in at 121 MB and has support for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese and Spanish. Furthermore, the app is still letterboxed on iPhone X.
