Microsoft Launcher, Edge browser comes to Apple iOS and Google Android platform; here's how to enroll for beta testing

Microsoft Edge is online for Android phones

While Edge is Microsoft's home-grown web browser, the Microsoft launcher for Android phones will bring some Windows phone utilities to Android.

Like the Edge browser, Microsoft Launcher also comes with "Continue on PC" feature, as well. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) has just announced two apps to let you continue working on your PC if you happen to initiate them on your iOS or Android device.

Announced by Joe Belfiore, Corporate VP for Windows and Devices at Microsoft, in a blog post, the new mobile-friendly versions of Edge are created to help you synchronise your browser activity between your smartphone and PC.

Arrow Launcher, one of the most popular launcher apps for Android devices has now been re-branded as Microsoft Launcher.

Microsoft largely missed the boat on mobile and although it offers a mobile version of Windows 10, the company has shifted its focus onto delivering apps and services to as many devices as possible, regardless of platform. Microsoft is allowing users to test the iOS version via Apple's TestFlight platform now while promising that the Android release 'will be available soon. "Your passwords and favourites are synced across your devices so your browser is always personalized to you", says Microsoft on its website.
