Microsoft has revealed that it will be bringing its Edge browser to both iOS and Android. Microsoft thinks this is a feature that distinguishes them from all other launchers.

Microsoft's Edge web browser has been exclusively available on Windows 10 operating system so far, but this has just changed.

There's an option called "continue on PC" which allows easy sync between your photos, documents and other similar content to your Windows 10 PC. The Edge browser for iOS is available for preview under Apple's TestFlight and is limited to 10,000 users. It will soon be available for Android devices, but for now, you can explore it with the preview version. When Microsoft released Windows 10, the company made it a bit hard for the users to change the default browser and also promoted Edge browser inside the operating system.

Yesterday, Microsoft officially revealed that the Edge browser is coming to Android and iOS later this year. That doesn't mean you can't have all your favourite features- Reading List, New Tab page, Reading View and more. You can also save web pages on Edge for mobile to open them anywhere later, including a PC.

It allows you to launch files from your home screen on your PC, providing, of course, you're a Microsoft app user.

Have you tried the Microsoft Edge on your iOS or Android device? The company has started beta testing the mobile version of Edge for Windows Insiders to give it a try. The first being the Arrow launcher developed as a project by Microsoft Garage, that is the company's arm for experimental appls for Android and iOS.

With not only new features for the Arrow launcher, as from now on the Arrow launcher will be rebranded as Microsoft LAUNCHER.

Talking about the customization aspects, you get plenty of icons, and a plethora of themes available to customize anything you want, the GUI is also now more matured and feels highly refined than earlier. Just swipe to the right and you'll see the important information that you need like events, top news, recent activities, recently used apps, and the people that you added as your Favorites. The launcher is also easily customizable in many ways and users can set colors of backgrounds and make use of the new "gesture" support as well. People using Arrow Launcher Beta will get the launcher today, and once it is out of preview, users will be automatically upgraded to it.
