We already know that Microsoft has been testing its Edge mobile browser in beta. Now, Microsoft has announced that it has rolled out the finished version of Edge for both iOS and Android users. Which means, starting today, any iOS and Android users can download Microsoft Edge browser on their mobile devices.

Microsoft says that they have been able to remove the ‘Preview’ tag from the new Edge browser after thousands of users’ beta-testing. And the new final version comes with some newly added features that come as add-ons to the already available feature. The biggest feature that Microsoft Edge offers is for those who use Windows 10, the feature is called “Continue on PC” and it lets a user switch back and forth between your smartphone and desktop or vice-versa right from where you left off. The browser also has support for a new ‘Roaming Passwords’ feature, that lets users save a new password on their phone, and use the same on their PC’s Edge browser. Microsoft has also included a new dark theme that comes with the mobile browser.

In a blog post, Microsoft says, “Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android brings familiar features like your Favorites, Reading List, New Tab Page, Reading View, and Roaming Passwords across your PC and phone, so, no matter the device, your browsing goes with you. But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you’re looking at right on your PC—or save it to work on later.”
