Microsoft Launcher for Android is now rolling out to all users

Microsoft Launcher for Android is now rolling out to all users

Not to be outdone in the ongoing browser war, Microsoft is bringing its Edge browser to Android OS.

Microsoft previously released a preview version on iOS-actually, iPhone-only, first to Windows Insiders only and then, a few days later, to any interested party.

In the company's testing of 36,120 different instances involving the access of 1,136 suspicious URLs over a 23-day period, the company found Edge to provide significantly more protection than its Google- and Mozilla-made alternatives.

All of your saved bookmarks and reading list is automatically synced seamlessly once you log in with the same Microsoft account tied to your Windows 10 devices. The Microsoft Edge preview for Android is now live, but getting it is a little more complicated than simply going to the Google Play Store and performing a search for the browser.

Today the new app is finally rolling out to the general users while last week Microsoft did update the app only for the beta testers. What that means again is that you might come across bugs and instability that could affect its performance.

In other tweets McGowan listed the names of the Weinstein Company board, demanding their resignation. She immediately took to Instagram to denounce the freeze: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

Microsoft Edge Preview for Android offers a range of features that you may have appreciated on its desktop client. But for now this will work only for those who have Fall creators update on their computer.

If you have not already tried out Microsoft Launcher, you can find it now via the link below.

The application is not yet launched officially, and for both the platform it is an unreleased app, but the difference is that on iOS platform an only limited number of users can use it while on Android anyone can download it. An interesting thing about this is if the user has stopped reading in Windows 10 of Edge, he can continue the same in Android where he has left reading in Windows 10 browser.

After Microsoft announced that Windows Phones are dead, its high time for them to move to Android.
