Improved reliability:  

  • Improved browser so that changing between light or dark theme is smoother
  • Improved the logic for image enhancement.

Changed Behavior:

  • Read Aloud button will now only show for websites that have the feature enabled.

  • Updated speech settings on reader mode for Android.

Edge 104 will soon be available for testing in the Beta channel, where Microsoft ships supported versions of the browser for final trials before promoting them to the stable channel. According to the release schedule, Edge Beta 104 will arrive on the week of June 28, 2022. The public release is expected in early August 2022.
