Microsoft Edge for Android Will Have Support for Blocking Ads  

Microsoft Edge for Android is there for a while but never had extension support. That means we weren’t able to add any extensions like ad block  to block the creepy advertisements, unless they’re built into the browser itself.

The good news is that Microsoft Edge for Android is rolling out an update for Beta users. As MSPoweruser reports, the new release brings the version number up to 402.0.0.2055, and it includes a new “Block content” option in the app’s settings. The report was confirmed by a tweet from Vishnu Nath, Head of Program Management for Microsoft Mobility Experiences.

Microsoft seems to be using Adblock Plus to power the ad-blocking feature. Adblock Plus is likely the most popular tracking protection browser extension – which is also available for Edge on Windows 10 – and it even provides its own Adblock Browser for Android.
