The Microsoft Edge experience on iOS and Android are always evolving and picking up new features on a regular basis. With a beta update today, Edge on iOS is now getting support for Microsoft’s new visual search feature, paste and go search in the address bar and more.

The latest update bumps the beta version of the Microsoft browser on iOS up to version 42.3.2 and allows you to upload a photo via Edge to find contact information, identify landmarks, scan QR codes, and more. In addition, the beta update also allows you to choose from more default search engine options under the settings. And finally, with paste and go, you can more easily search the web for things from your favorite search engine of search.


If you happen to be using a work or school account with Edge Beta on iOS, you’ll also see some extra features. These include support for seeing your mobile activity in your PCS timeline and securely accessing intranet sites from your home.

Some of these features already rolled out to the Android version of the application, which recently got support for translations on web pages. We’re expecting today’s update to roll out to standard Edge on iOS users soon, but for now, only beta users who are enrolled in Testflight can try out these latest features.
