The Microsoft Edge browser for Android has the same interface like its PC version. Microsoft built a central Hub View within the Edge mobile browser, so users will know where their data are stored. It allows users to continue the work or play they were doing on a Windows 10 PC, providing they stuck with the default Edge browser, and keep going with it on an Android or iOS device. It's available for both Android and iOS users. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen.

To sync your mobile and desktop browsing, you will need a PC with Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update installed. It's a browser for dedicated Edge users on desktop to carry their browsing experience with them when they shift to their phones. The browser was released for public testing back in October, giving "hundreds of thousands" of users a chance to put the app through its paces and give feedback to Microsoft. With most of the kinks ironed out, the finished version adds a couple of new features to the existing set available since the first preview came out. There's also dark theme. It's clocking in at 121 MB and has support for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese and Spanish. And Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android is another step in that journey.
