Microsoft has announced it is launching two new apps on iOS and Android.
The Redmond tech giant has has revealed that the Microsoft Edge browser will be available on Android and iOS.
This will mean that you will be able to easily share web pages from your PC to your smartphone and vice versa, enabling you to pick up where you left off. It’s useful if you want to continue reading a website on a bigger screen after opening a link from your smartphone.
This is made possible by Microsoft’s ‘Continue to PC’ feature that is included in the Edge web browser.
As well as Continue to PC, Edge on iOS and Android also includes favourites, reading list, history and e-books which will all sync across devices, as will any saved passwords.
“But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you’re looking at right on your PC-or save it to work on later,” Microsoft Corporate VP Joe Belfiore wrote in a blog post.
Belfiore also said that the Microsoft Launcher is now available in beta on Android.
Microsoft Launcher offers a one stop and simplified feed that gives you access to all your Microsoft apps and also lets you sync and share photos and documents from your phone to your Windows 10 PC.
