What you need to know
- The new Microsoft Edge is now available on ARM devices.
- Version 80 is rolling out to the stable channel.
Microsoft is updating the stable version of Microsoft Edge to version 80 today, meaning official support for Windows 10 on ARM devices is now generally available. Version 80 of Microsoft Edge has been in testing for a little while now, and brings support for Dolby Vision playback, improved web app support, and general stability and performance improvements.
Microsoft Edge will automatically update to the latest version when you next run the browser, or you can manually check for updates by opening Edge and heading to Settings > About Microsoft Edge. Users already using the stable version of Microsoft Edge on an ARM PC will automatically be switched over to the native ARM browser, which will significantly improve performance and memory usage inside the browser.
Microsoft launched the new Microsoft Edge on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and macOS last month. It's a massive improvement over the old Microsoft Edge, which often had trouble rendering webpages and keeping up with the rest of the competition with new features. The new Microsoft Edge will begin rolling out automatically on Windows 10 in the coming weeks, but you can download the browser today manually if you don't want to wait.
