This morning, Microsoft’s Edge app officially became available, exiting the preview stage on both iOS and Android. In the hours since then, Microsoft took to the Windows Experience Blog to thank those who beta tested the app. The company also shared a promotional video and some other interesting details, saying Edge has been downloaded by “hundreds of thousands” and will be available in more regions soon.

Via the listing on Android’s Google Play Store, Edge on Android has been installed over 500,000 times, with a total rating of 4.6 stars. On the iOS side of things, the app just launched on the App Store out of preview on Test Flight, so there’s not any reviews or public facing app store data for that platform at the time of writing.

Anyway, Microsoft is saying that Edge for Android is available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, India, and the UK. Edge for iOS, meanwhile, is available in the US, China, France, and the UK. More markets are coming soon, though, with Microsoft saying that “We look forward to bringing MS Edge for iOS and Android to additional markets and languages over time.”

Definitely one step forward, and you can expect Microsoft to work on Edge for iOS and Android in the coming months. We’ll be looking forward to seeing more features, such as tablet support, and even tab syncing. For now, though, you can download Edge for your iOS or Android device by checking the link below.
