- Microsoft Edge will no longer support e-books using the .epub format.
- The Microsoft Store has a collection of ePub apps that Microsoft recommends.
- Microsoft removed books from the Microsoft Store earlier this year.
Microsoft Edge users will no longer be able to read e-books directly within the browser. Microsoft is ending support for the .epub file extension for Microsoft Edge. Earlier this year, Microsoft removed books from the Microsoft Store. But now, users won't be able to read e-books they got from other sources through Microsoft's browser.
The Microsoft support page outlining the end of ePub support for Edge states that Microsoft collaborated with the DAISY Consortium to create a list of ePub applications. Those applications are expected to be in the Microsoft Store after September. For now, Microsoft recommends that users check out the "Reading room" collection of reading apps in the Microsoft Store.
