Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS is now here! Thank you for the 2 years of support to everyone who responded with feedback in this thread, and a special thank you to Microsoft Consumers like you! Download the App on Google Play or Apple's App Store
Hello. With the Recent Launch of Windows 10, Cortana was made available for Android and iPhone. This allows your personal assistant to stay with you on more than one device. So your personal assistant is even smarter and twice as
So, With your Personal Assistant being everywhere, Why not your Browser?
Microsoft Edge is a Great Browser and for some users, has replaced Chrome and Firefox (and other browsers). With Microsoft Edge being available on Android and iOS, The user base would triple. Not only that, but Microsoft would also make it easier for users to sync tabs, passwords and other information to be more available. This would be very productive and like Satya Nadella said, "Would empower people to do, and achieve more".
Why Would This Be a Good Idea for Microsoft:
Well, as described above, It would make people’s life's easier not needing to go switch between devices trying to remember that article or password. Cortana “could” be built into Edge for Android and iOS, and make intelligent predictions like it does on Windows.
It would solve one problem. Microsoft’s Browsers. If you don't know what I mean, I'm saying that Microsoft’s Browser(s) have never been cross platform (Excluding IE for Mac and Unix Made Over A Decade Ago). That's one reason some people tend to look for other another browser. Cross Platform Compatibility. Users want services that are convenient and easy where they can access their data (in this case passwords, browser history, etc.) without needing to enter their information in another browser. Some people have up to 50+ different accounts and passwords they are expected to remember.
More People using Microsoft’s Great Services to do and achieve more. This one speaks for itself. That's what Windows 10 and Windows 8 are focusing on. Think. These are services Microsoft already has on Android and iOS.
And here are ones for iOS:
Microsoft has already made 50+ Super Convenient Apps that have helped people. They can help those and new people by making it available for Android and iOS. After All, Android is one of the most used Operating Systems in History and iOS apps tend to be downloaded much more than on Android and Windows Phone. It'd be a smart move for Microsoft. They want people to move to their services and this would be a great move for Microsoft! They could triple the current users! Android has over 1,000,000,000 devices out there. And iOS has more users who use Microsoft apps than on Android and Windows Phone! Edge could be running on them soon. Please tell Microsoft what you think below :)
