Microsoft Edge rolls out support for iPad and Android tablets

Microsoft Edge is officially picking up tablet support with its latest updates on Android and iOS. Following a brief period of beta testing that started earlier in March, Microsoft is rolling out support for iPad and Android tablets to everyone across both platforms.

In terms of features, Edge on tablets supports the same basic bits as it does on phones. You'll find that the same "Continue on PC" option is available here, as is the ability to sync passwords, favorites, and reading lists between devices. The biggest change is that the interface has been scaled up and customized to fit the larger screens available Apple's iPads and Android tablets.

Aside from tablet support, Microsoft says each version has also been updated with improvements to the sign-in and sign-out experience, as well as general performance improvements.

If you're giving Microsoft Edge a go on either platform, you can pick up tablet support with the latest updates available now via Google Play and the App Store.

  • Finally. Been waiting for this since edge came to iphone! It's awesome on apple devices!
  • How's the UI?
  • Awesome. Pick up where I left off on my computer, From my ipad or phone. smooth and fast, swipe gestures work. It is great!
  • Edge on Amdroid or iOS is actually pretty neat. The only reason I don't use it is because it doesn't sync history, yet.
  • Nor open tabs neither
  • The UI on phones is better than the UI on tablets, in my opinion. I wish the layout were more like it is in Windows. (Why is the new tab button all the way on the right side?) That being said, it's an awesome browser and it doesn't feed me Trump and Kardashian news all the time like Chrome does. I hope history sync comes soon.
  • Pity they never did it for windows mobile
  • Never did what?
  • Exactly. See what I did there?
  • Totally gonna see if it works on a Chromebook now ;-)
  • I am going to go out on a limb and say no. let me know otherwise Richard.
  • I gave Edge a try on iPad and am not a fan of the bookmark manager. I prefer Bookmark OS
