Precisely one week ago today, Microsoft announced that preview builds of its Edge browser were coming to iOS and Android. As part of the branding change, the Arrow Launcher is now known as Microsoft Launcher. The Microsoft Edge app for Android is available globally, not just in the USA, and allows users to seamlessly work back and forth between a mobile device and a desktop PC.

For Windows platform, it is still a great option, and for Android and iOS it brings incredible features like Syncing Bookmarks, history, etc. and in overall it gives continuous experience as it also brings the page where you left on PC or a smartphone.

Today, Joe Belfiore confirmed that the Microsoft Launcher has exited beta and it is gradually rolling out to the existing users, it might take a couple of days or weeks for the launcher to get updated on all Android devices. With just a quick swipe-to-the-right, Microsoft Launcher offers a tailored feed of your important events, top news, recent activities, favorite people and most frequently used apps.


The ability to customize wallpaper, theme and accent colors, icon packs, and gestures. The Microsoft Edge preview for Android is now live, but getting it is a little more complicated than simply going to the Google Play Store and performing a search for the browser.

As you browse through these screenshots a lot of things will ber very familiar as they match up nicely with Microsoft Edge on the Windows 10 desktop. Search the web or your files, apps, docs, messages and web results using Microsoft Launcher's universal search bar. Also, it may not be as lively as the live tiles on Windows 10 Mobile, but it sure will help you make your Android phone much more personal.
