Microsoft’s Edge browser for Android has picked up an update, taking it to version

The update brings along a very attractive dark theme, giving the options of the default, light and dark appearance of the app.

More importantly, the app will now sync passwords with the desktop version of the app, just like the iOS version, after you log in and verify the device using some form of 2-factor authentication.

This feature came to the iOS app a week ago.

The browser uses a WebKit rendering engine and is smooth and fast on most Android devices. It offers such features as synced favourites, a synced reading list, continue on PC support, a feed adjusted to your interests, the choice of multiple search engines, auto-fill forms and passwords and can be set as your default browser.

It seems if Edge is your default browser on the desktop currently there is very little reason it could also not be your default browser on your android phone.

Microsoft Edge for Android isn’t available to all users at the moment, and you will have to join the preview program to be able to get your hands on it. The preview program is open to everyone though, so you can sign-up for it here. Once you are part of the preview program, you will be able to get the browser on your Android phone here. 

Thanks, RubRiches for the tip.
