A fresh update is rolling out to Microsoft Edge on Android, bringing the usual batch of performance improvements alongside a single new feature. As part of the latest update, you can now customize the newsfeed on the default page when you open a new tab to conform with your language and region.
Microsoft says it has also improved the option that sets Microsoft Edge as your default browser, but it's unclear what those improvements mean. Of course, general performance has received a boost here as well. Here's a look at the full release notes:
- Thanks for using Microsoft Edge. In this update we improved performance.
- Support for New Tab Page newsfeed language/region customization
- Improved the option that allows setting Microsoft Edge as default browser
Microsoft Edge for Android launched in late 2017 as a way for heavy Edge users to sync their passwords, favorites, and reading lists between devices. A "Continue on PC" feature also allows you to pick up where you left off when moving from your phone to your desktop. Though on Android it has to compete with Chrome, Firefox, and whatever your phone's default browser may be, Edge's features were enough to attract more than a million downloads not long after launch.
If you're already using Microsoft Edge as your Android browser, or simply want to give it a shot, you can pick up the latest update on Google Play now.
