Microsoft Edge Beta gets its new icon on Android

Microsoft is beginning to make the new icon for its Edge browser more widely available, as it's shown up on the beta version of the Android app today. There aren't any other new features like we saw earlier this week; it's just the new icon.

The company is preparing for the big desktop launch of Edge Chromium, the new version of its in-house browser. Beginning on January 15, the new browser will be generally available; not only that, but users on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and macOS will have access to Edge for the first time. And of course, it will have a new logo to differentiate from Edge Legacy.

An update to Edge Beta on Android, which has always been based on Chromium, was offered earlier this week to let people choose whether to sync with "The new Microsoft Edge" or "Microsoft Edge Legacy", rather than Edge Insider and Edge. It also introduced a new Control Center.

It's unclear when the new icon will show up in the production channel or when it will be available on iOS, but some time around January 15 sounds like a sure bet.
