Microsoft Edge Update Makes it Easier to Browse the Web


What makes Microsoft Edge stand out from all the other mobile browsers available for Android is the fact that Edge is an ever-improving app. This thanks to the fact that Microsoft is providing the mobile browser with full-fledged developer support. Edge is updated on a constant basis with improvements and in fact, a brand-new release is now available for download.

Microsoft Edge Update

The latest update for Edge sports the version number and it is available to download directly via OTA (over the air) channels. Therefore, the only requirement to access the update and all the improvements that it brings is to have access to a stable Wi-Fi network and use an Android-powered smartphone.

Alternatively, the update can be manually downloaded and installed in the form of an Android Package Kit. However, we want to mention that this type of release can only be installed by sideloading them on devices that have enabled the “Unknown Sources” option.
