Microsoft Edge Android Browser Now Available As A Preview

The great thing about the Android version of Microsoft Edge is that there is no limit to the number of testers that can download the app for their devices. Now, the browser is available on all mobile OS, and that will give Microsoft the opportunity it needs to maybe "compete" with Google, Apple Mozilla Opera, and the likes in the browser market.

As mentioned, the browser is still in beta and Google warns you when you try to download it from Play Store. A request has been made to change the default setting from full telemetry to force users to choose a setting for themselves. The ability to sync data with your Windows PC is another major feature of the app, allowing you to carry your reading lists everywhere you go. From the release, it is apparent that the DPA has an issue with the way that Microsoft "continuously collects technical performance and user data from the devices".

Microsoft has come under fire from a Dutch privacy watchdog over claims the tech giant collected data from personal computers using its Windows 10 package.

The good news is that Microsoft says it's brining the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update next week-and that means everyone should enjoy and have access to the Continue on PC tool without the need for an insider build.

Moore suggested the boycott last 24 hours, and advised users to completely log out of the popular social media platform starting at midnight Eastern Daylight Time.

In the Netherlands over 4 million active devices use Windows 10 Home and Pro. Now Microsoft is trying to get some user base for Microsoft Edge by releasing it to the 2 most popular mobile operating systems. The new browser from Microsoft blocked 92.3% of phishing URLs on average, in comparison to 74.6% and 61.1% for Chrome and Firefox, respectively.

According to the Dutch authority, the full telemetry option is enabled by default at Windows 10 installation and users are only asked to accept the offered setting. Features like Cortana, ad-block plugins, tab syncs are still not here.

If you had signed up to be notified about Microsoft Edge's availability on Android, you may have received an email from the company.

While the browser war intensifies, Microsoft can only continue to push its Edge browser further across popular operating systems if it wants to remain relevant and not be pushed out of the market. However, the company made a similar promise previous year to avoid being fined by the French DPA, too, so it remains to be seen if the changes Microsoft plans to make in a future Windows 10 update will indeed follow all of the law's requirements.
