Microsoft's Photos Companion App for Android and iOS could be coming soon

Microsoft Edge on Android and iOS is now available for all

The browser was previously available to beta testers on both platforms. 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. Microsoft today announced that the Edge browser for Android and iOS is now available for everyone.

KitGuru Says: Considering Microsoft has had its Edge browser out on desktop for the best part of two-and-a-half years, it's been quite slow to the mark with mobile.

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. Content and data sync seamlessly in the background, so users can browse across devices, without skipping a beat. More than just allowing its users to sync passwords and bookmarks, Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS also provides them with the ability to go directly to the page they were browsing on the phone when moving to a PC that is in sync with the same Microsoft account. Microsoft claims that "hundreds of thousands" of people tested out the Edge preview, but only about 4.5 percent of PC owners use Edge in the first place, according to the latest stats from NetMarketShare.

Microsoft launched the Edge browser for public testing in October.

The hidden features, meanwhile, will bring a new Favorite section similar to the one on Windows 10 Mobile, allowing users to add photos to favorites simply by pressing the "F" key. It's clocking in at 121 MB and has support for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese and Spanish.

Microsoft is getting really cozy with Android. For now, though, you can download Edge for your iOS or Android device by checking the link below.
