Microsoft is steadily making improvements to the preview version of its Edge browser on Android. But perhaps one of the biggest and most welcome changes thus far has arrived with the app's latest update: a dark theme.
Venturing into the "Appearance" section of Edge's settings will now surface a theme option, where you can choose between "Default," "Light," and the new "Dark" options. Selecting the "Dark" option will skin the settings menu, your home page, the address bar, and the navigation bar with a dark gray look that should be much more pleasing to your eyes when browsing in the dark. The whole thing looks pretty snazzy, though the contrast when looking at a site with a white background is somewhat jarring.
On top of the new dark theme, this update also adds password syncing, allowing you to keep your passwords in sync between Edge on all of your devices.
Here's a look at the official release notes:
- Password syncing: Your passwords in Microsoft Edge are synced across your devices, so no matter the device, you can always get the passwords you saved.
- Dark theme: Just like in Windows 10, personalize Microsoft Edge by switching to the beautiful new dark theme - perfect for low-light conditions such as working at night.
Edge is still very much in the testing phase on Android, so expect to run into the occasional bug if you're planning on trying it out. Still, the preview is open to everyone, and you can grab the app, along with the new dark theme, from Google Play now.
