Microsoft Edge now available as a stable release for Android and iOS

After giving fans a chance to try out a beta version of its mobile web browser, Microsoft has now taken off the beta tag and rolled out the finished version of Edge for iOS and Android users. While Microsoft allowed everyone to test the app on Android, the Edge for iPhone was only available to the select beta testers.

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. But its key feature, perhaps, is Continue on PC, which lets you open the web page you're looking at on your phone right on your PC, or save it to work on later. But as of this week, the app has shed its beta status and is now available for download from the Google Play Store.

Microsoft's Edge mobile browser has finally arrived on iOS. iPhone and iPad users may now download and install the Internet Explorer replacement on their devices.

Aside from the new Photos companion app, Windows 10 PC version 2017.39101.15230.0 will also bring a number of other features and improvements. To ensure seamless synchronization, Microsoft says users should download the Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update for their PC. Content and data sync seamlessly in the background, so users can browse across devices, without skipping a beat.

The Photos companion app will soon become available for Windows 10 testers, but it might be a while before it's ready for public release.
