Microsoft Edge is a super-fast and safe mobile browser that provides users with access to premium features. Since Microsoft is the company directly in charge of this browser, then it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Edge offers full integration with Android smartphones and Windows 10 powered devices. Once the smartphone has been linked to Edge, then the user’s history, files and all other stuff will be automatically synced with the Windows 10 desktop PC.
The second benefit of having Microsoft as a parent company is the fact that Edge benefits from full fledged developer support. This means that the Edge has a large team of developers that is releasing updates on a constant basis. The latest update for Edge sports the 22.214.171.12411 beta version number and it has been released earlier this morning.
Microsoft Edge 126.96.36.19911 Beta Update
The new update for Edge weighs in at 87.02MB and it is targeted for smartphones that are running on Android 9.0 Pie. Fortunately, the update can also be installed on older smartphones because it requires a minimum of Android 4.4 KitKat operating system in order to run without any issues or bugs.
Edge fans should be pleased to find out that the new update introduces a handful of software improvements for the browser’s overall performances. To make things even better, the new update also comes with improvements for the Picture-in-Picture mode. However, the Picture-in-Picture mode is available only for smartphones that are running on Android 8.0 Oreo.
How to Download the New Update
There are two ways to download the new update. The first one is to simply connect your smartphone to a stable Wi-Fi network and to wait for the update to arrive via OTA (over the air) channels. However, this method is available only to Edge users who are enrolled in the beta program. In addition, the update can also be manually downloaded and installed in the form of APK.
