The Microsoft Edge mobile apps for Android and iOS have picked up support for one of the cooler new features coming in the spring Windows 10 feature update: Timeline. Both the public release of Edge for iOS and the Edge beta for Android have received updates today adding integration with Timeline, along with bug fixes and more.

Timeline integration will allow you to see your mobile browsing history in the timeline on your PC alongside other apps and websites you browsed on Edge for desktop. That can help you easily get back to something you were browsing while on the go, going back for a period of 30 days. In addition, those using Edge on an iPhone or iPad will now be able to move and rename their favorites, while both versions have picked up a batch of performance improvements. Here's a look at what's new:

Edge for iOS

  • See mobile browsing history in your PC's timeline
  • Rename and move favorites
  • Performance improvements

Edge (beta) for Android

  • See mobile browsing history in your PC's timeline
  • Performance improvements

To get started with sharing your mobile browsing history to Timeline, you'll want to make sure that you've turned on the "Share history" setting within the mobile app's Settings menu.

Everyone on iOS can grab the latest update with Timeline integration now. If you're using an Android device, you'll have to be a beta tester to dive in. You can easily enroll in the Edge for Android beta via the app's Play Store page on your phone.
