Microsoft Edge surpasses 1 million downloads on Android

Microsoft Edge officially came out of beta for Android devices last week, and already the popular browser has surpassed one million downloads, according to the Google Play Store.

Granted, people were able to download the beta from the store as well, but it only went into preview in October, so it is still a rather impressive feat for the app in such a short time. While we don't have exact numbers, the milestone is gleaned from Microsoft Edge breaking into the new category of "1 million to 5 million" downloads.

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell how popular the app is for iOS. It launched at the same time as the Android version, but Apple's TestFlight only allows 10,000 people to try an app while it is in beta, so it is likely that the browser app has not had as much adoption on iOS as on Android.

The browser, designed for Windows 10 compatibility, has some cool features including one that allows work that you have done on your mobile device to be carried over to your PC. The app will also sync your data across all devices, as well as allowing voice search of the web.
