Microsoft Edge build 96.0.1032.0 (opens in new tab) is now available through the Dev Channel. The update enables voice typing in web pages on Windows 11 and adds a handful of other new features. A new button in the main feedback dialog makes it easy to get to the "Recreate my problem" sub-dialog. The latest version of Edge Dev also adds a button to exit Immersive Reader on iPads.

Here's everything that's new in Edge Dev version 96.0.1032.0:

  • Added an item to the menu when right-clicking tabs that moves the tab to a different profile, even if no windows for that profile are currently open.
  • Enabled voice typing in web pages on Windows 11.
  • Added a button to the main feedback dialog to easily get to the "Recreate my problem" sub-dialog.
  • Added an X to close certain toast notifications that appear when managing Collections.
  • Added a button to exit Immersive Reader on iPad.
  • Added improved messaging when the Web Widget fails to open because an extension disabled it.

The update also improves reliability in several ways:

  • Fixed a crash when opening a window to a profile when a window for another profile is open.
  • Fixed a crash when viewing Settings in a Guest window.
  • Fixed a crash when using Internet Explorer mode.
  • Mobile:
  • Fixed a crash on Android when using third-party autofill providers.
  • Fixed a crash on Android when downloading something.
  • Fixed a crash on iPad.
  • Fixed some crashes on Android 12.
  • Fixed a crash in WebView2 apps when opening a context menu (Issue 1744).
