The Microsoft Edge in Beta for Android has received a new update that brings the picture-in-picture mode. This feature was first made available to iOS and now it’s making its way to Android as well.
The picture-in-picture mode or simply the PiP enables a video to float over the main Edge window while you continue browsing the other things. This feature has been with several other apps on Android already, but the Microsoft Edge is fetching it a bit late.
Aside from this notable feature, the update brings nothing and new, though expect some bug fixes and performance improvements as well that fine-tune the browser than before.
Beta users will be able to have this update and try out the new feature via Google Play. If you haven’t registered yet as a beta user you can now register to become the part of new builds from Google Play.
The feature will roll out officially to public users soon since it’s already available to the beta users.
Microsoft Edge on Android has 5M+ users and the new feature will definitely be liked by all these users who are actively using the browser on their phones.
