Microsoft today pushed out a new update for its Windows 10’s default browser Edge on Android and iOS. The update is available for users who have signed in to the beta program of the Edge browser on their respective devices.

Microsoft to get Edge popular among users and increase its market share had released the browser on rival platforms iOS and Android last year.

Today’s update to the Edge browser contains parental controls for Android users. The latest beta version is available for download for users who have signed into the beta program. With the new parental controls, Microsoft has given parents the option to enable special rules for their children in terms of what they can download.

The beta update also comes with improvements to the book reading support which was released to the Android users some time ago. The update also fixes some bugs and improves the performance of the app.

Microsoft also updated their Edge browser for iOS users with some new features. The latest update has pushed the app to new version 42.1. The update comes with a new and redesigned hub which now allows to group favourites along with reading lists, downloads and more.

The company has also rolled out some UI improvements for Edge users on iPad which now comes with support for command key on the iPad Pro keyboard. With improvements to the command keys, iPad users will now be able to see supported shortcuts while browsing.

The update is available for Android and iPhones, but you may need to join the TestFlight program to download Microsoft Edge beta on iPad. Microsoft would be rolling out the new features introduced in the beta app to the stable version of the app after successful testing in the coming days or weeks.

For being able to test the new features and improvements, Microsoft is requesting users to provide feedback on the latest updates. The feedback from testers helps Microsoft fix any issues before rolling out the update to all Android and iOS users.
