After giving up its own Edge HTML and switching to chromium hugs, Microsoft has contributed to the Chromium community and introduced a number of improvements to the new Edge browser, but some behaviors remain unchanged. Just as the desktop platform is trying to convince users to use The Edge as the default browser for Windows 10 systems, Microsoft is now trying to steer Android users to do the same.
Although the Microsoft Edge browser for android platforms is still in beta, the official version will not be released until January 15 next year. But now Microsoft has issued a recommendation to users inviting “always to use Microsoft Edge for Internet access” and has provided a statement for this purpose.
It’s nothing new to show an edge browser on its official website, the Windows 10 Settings app and the lock screen, but it’s the first time it’s been promoted on the Android platform. Currently on the Windows 10 platform, the classic version of Microsoft Edge is the default browser and the default PDF viewer, as it will be in the future after a formal upgrade to a new version of Chromium-based Edge.
Before its official launch on January 15, Microsoft had now alerted Android users to make it the default browser. If the user selects Yes, they jump to the system’s default app settings and select Edge as the default browser.
