Here’s how to test extensions in Microsoft Edge for Android

What you need to know

  • Microsoft is working on extension support for Microsoft Edge on Android.
  • You can already test a small set of extensions within Microsoft Edge Canary.
  • Extensions are popular on desktop browsers but only a handful of popular mobile browsers support them, including Firefox and Samsung Internet.
  • Notably, Google Chrome for Android does not support extensions.

Microsoft Edge on Android should soon get a major boost in the form of extension support. Edge Canary for Android now has a flag that allows you to enable extensions within the mobile browser. Well-known Edge expert Leo Varela shared the news on X (formerly Twitter) and showed off some of the extensions that are already supported.

Extensions are incredibly popular on desktop browsers, but surprisingly few popular mobile browsers support them. Firefox and Samsung Internet work with extensions but Google Chrome for Android does not. And of course, Edge did not support extensions until Microsoft began testing the functionality in Edge Canary.
