Microsoft’s new Edge browser is now available through Windows Update

Microsoft began rolling out a new Edge browser through Windows Update, and a new Chromeum-based Edge browser was launched in January, but Windows users had to download it specifically. And now a Microsoft support article says Edge can be updated through Windows Update, meaning it will soon appear on more than 1 billion Windows 10 devices in use.

Edge will be automatically installed on Windows 10 with Windows Update on 1803 and above. This covers the vast majority of versions of Windows 10 currently supported, which means that it should soon start showing up for users in Windows Update.

Of course, Windows Update is now used to incremental push, so you may not see it in Windows Update right away.

In recent months, Microsoft has gradually improved Its Edge, including the ability to synchronize extensions, and unfortunately history and tab sync ingress is still not supported, but Microsoft has promised to enable the feature this summer.

Microsoft also plans to bring vertical tags, new sidebar search capabilities and Pinterest integration to Edge in the coming months. Microsoft has also been working with Google to improve spell checkers and rolling support, as well as Progressive Web Apps (PWA) support in Edge.
