The Edge browser for Android now gets the support for Automatic Translation with the latest update. Loading a website in different language than what is configured on the device, the Edge users on Android will now be able to view the website in the language which has been configured on the device.
This would mean that if the users are trying to view an article in any other language for example: Italian, the article is automatically translated to the language (say English) that is configured on the device.
With the addition of the automatic translation feature, Microsoft has brought the Edge browser close to Google Chrome on Mobile which also provides users with the automatic translation feature.
Microsoft has also made sure that if the users are not willing to use the automatic translation feature then they have the option to disable the same by going to the settings menu in the Edge browser.
The latest update also brings in fixes for Bing.com users which had issues related to not being able to receive rewards for using the search engine. The rewards were announced as part of Microsoft’s Rewards program.
The update also allows users to securely access intranet sites from home and watch the mobile activity on their desktop with the integration of Windows 10 Timeline.
There are also lot of under the hood bug fixes and performance improvements as part of the update for Android users. The latest update is currently available for beta users of Edge browser on Android and should be made available for all Android users in the coming days.
