If you'd like to test preview versions of Microsoft Edge on your Android smartphone but don't want to risk bugs in the Canary or Dev channels, a new Beta version is available on the Google Play store. With the release of Edge Beta for Android, Microsoft now offers all preview channels from desktop on Android. You can opt for a stable version, Beta, Dev, or Canary.
Microsoft Edge 92 is the first public beta version available for Android. It follows the same beta release on Windows, macOS, and Linux. It already has some recently introduced features, such as built-in AdBlock, improved integration with Microsoft Translator, a shopping assistant, coupon finder, and a screenshot tool.
Not so long ago, Microsoft announced plans to unify Edge's code base across all platforms to speed up the development process on desktops and mobile. Although stable versions of Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android are still behind desktop counterparts, preview channels on mobile now fully follow Edge Canary, Dev, and Beta for Windows, macOS, and Linux. You can read a dedicated article that describes the differences between different browser versions and channels in the Edge Insider program.
Edge 92 Beta for Android is now available to everyone willing to join using this link to the Google Play Store. To install the updated version of Edge for Android, you need a smartphone with Android 5 or newer. Identically to Edge Beta for desktop operating systems, Edge Beta for Android will be getting major feature updates every six weeks.
As for iOS, preview versions of Microsoft Edge are not available to everyone. Microsoft uses the TestFlight program to test Beta and Dev versions before public releases. Currently, the program does not accept new users, as it can only hold no more than 10,000 participants.
