Microsoft is betting big on Microsoft Edge browser in the long term, therefore the clients are investing big on new capabilities that will make its app a better option to the likes of Chrome and Firefox.
But simultaneously, the Redmond-based software giant also hopes more users would give a try to the mobile app, as Edge is now available on Android and iPhone too.
Needless to say, Microsoft hopes people would stick with Edge browser on all platforms, so it has developed sync features that would allow some data to roam between devices once the same Microsoft account is used.
Try the browser recommended by Microsoft
As noted by Neowin, Microsoft now hopes that those who installed Advantage on the desktop will give a go to the mobile version too, therefore it started showing messages within the browser to prompt these to download the app on the smartphone.
“Sync your computer and your mobile devices. Pick up in which you left off with Microsoft Edge for your phone or tablet. Scan the QR code to get started,” Microsoft says in a message that now turns up within the settings screen of Advantage on the desktop. A QR code is also generated to take users right to the download page of the mobile browser in the App Store or Google Play Store.
The good news is the message isn’t whatsoever intrusive, because it only turns up within the settings screen, with no notification or things like that displayed towards the user.
So after the day, it’s perfectly alright should you agree to install Edge mobile, having a dismiss button also shown in the event you never want to see the message again.
