Microsoft Edge adds support for ebooks on Android devices with latest update

Brad Stephenson

The official Microsoft Edge app for Android devices has updated to Version this week with several major new features that should please users.

In addition to now allowing users to sign in with their school or work accounts, Edge on Android can now read ebooks that have been purchased from the Microsoft Store. Ebook support was added to the iOS Edge app last week. It’s worth pointing out that Microsoft Store ebooks are not available in all regions so this feature’s usefulness will depend on where the user is located.

This update also allows parents and guardians to block certain websites for their children. Here’s the full release notes.

  • Sign in with a school or work account – Favorites and password syncing coming soon
  • Adults with Microsoft family accounts can allow and block websites for their children
  • Read books on the go – Books from the Microsoft Store – Bookmarks, annotation and highlights not supported
  • Performance improvements
