Edge Mobile Gets Timeline Support As Microsoft Readies Windows 10 April 2018 Update

Posted on April 23, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft, Windows 10 with 5 Comments

Microsoft is soon going to start releasing the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, also known as Redstone 4, to the public. The company was initially supposed to start rolling out the update to the public earlier this month, but a blocking bug forced the company to delay the rollout.

Ahead of the release of the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, Microsoft has started rolling out support for a major new feature in Windows 10 to Microsoft Edge on Android and iOS. Edge now supports Windows 10’s new Timeline experience on mobile devices, which means Timeline will now give you access to the websites you visit on your phone from your PC. By enabling the “share browsing history” feature for Edge on mobile, you’ll be able to let Timeline show your phone’s browsing history on your PC, and pick up where you left off.

Support for Timeline is already available for Edge on iOS, though it is currently in a beta test on Android. Redmond is also adding the ability to edit your favourites from the Edge app on iOS with the latest update. You can get it on iOS here, and on Android here.

    I wonder if editing Favorites from iOS will be easier and better than from Windows...

    Nice feature. I will definitely be using this a lot.

    Download have a question. If PWA's make use of the Edge engine on Windows 10, will they become visible in Timeline automatically?

    Timeline it’s a feature that makes a lot of sense. Hopefully it will be searchable.

    They could have simply merged the history items of Edge of PC with those of iOS and Android, without requiring to enable any setting, but then this is Microsoft we’re talking about.
