As we all know, Microsoft is working on a new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser which will replace the current Microsoft Edge. However, Microsoft has made it clear through multiple updates that it is not abandoning the current Microsoft Edge browser for the time being.
Yesterday, Microsoft released an exciting new update for iOS Edge users. The update was first spotted and reported upon by mspoweruser. Version 42.11.4 comes with some new interesting features. The update adds an instant translation feature into the browser. This allows Edge to translate web pages that are in a foreign language instantly to the user’s set native language. The feature is much like Google Chrome’s instant translate feature. However, the translation on Edge is powered by the much less popular Microsoft Translate. Unfortunately, This is unlikely to change from Microsoft Translate to Google Translate even after Edge’s switch to Chromium.
Microsoft also added a new security feature into the iOS Edge browser. The update enables users accessing the app a company account or an educational institution to have secure access to private intranet networks. This allows for more secure and private browsing. These users will also be able to view web pages on their PC timeline. Microsoft also addressed and fixed some much-needed bug fixes and added ‘various’ improvements.
You can download the new update for the app from the App Store right now. Unfortunately, the update is only available for iOS users at the moment. However, it’s only a matter of time before the update also hits the Android version of the app.
