New Microsoft Edge Android Tab-Sharing Facility Rolls Out

Microsoft Edge Just Made Its Connection to Android Even Better with This New Feature

Microsoft Edge has released an update for Android pairing that makes switching between devices much easier when browsing the web…

Microsoft has pushed out an update for its Edge browser that makes transitioning from one device to another a whole lot smoother. In the most recent version of Edge for Android (which is built on Chromium tech) there’s a few new features but one in particular stands out — tab sharing. While this has been available on desktop, previous iterations were restricted to fewer platforms. Now, tab sharing works with Windows, macOS, or Android.

The Microsoft Edge update now allows users to share tabs between any of their devices. That is, provided they are logged into the same Microsoft account on all browser installations. And, it requires Android version 5 or Lollipop or newer in order to work. Since that version just over seven years ago, this shouldn’t be a problem at all. However, more recent versions will likely deliver better performance.

With the new option, people can easily transition right from one device to another without the hassle of having to wade through search history or even more extensive work, such as emailing links or conducting entirely new searches for the same materials.
