Microsoft Edge Canary is now available on Android with a new UI update

Microsoft has quietly rolled out Edge Canary on Android with a fresh user interface, among other changes. The browser's Canary channel runs version 91 and it introduces a host of features such as access to experimental flags.

The latest build has version number 91.0.858.0 and Microsoft promises to release new builds every day. The Canary build was first spotted by a Reddit user and picked up by Aggiornamenti Lumia.

It's worth noting that Edge Canary on Android has a similar user experience and shell as the regular Edge browser for mobile. For example, it has the same page layout options as the regular Edge. However, the Canary channel does not have the option to view your reading list. It also has a different menu layout compared to the existing Edge mobile browser.

Today's release doesn't entirely come as a surprise seeing as the software giant announced last month that it planned to transition to a common codebase for the desktop, Android, and iOS versions later this year to streamline the development of any new features. The way things are at present, this task needs to be done three times due to the different codebases for Android, iOS, and the desktop.

If you want to try out the preview channel for Edge on Android, it is now available to download via the Google Play Store.
