  • Microsoft Edge for Android now available from the Google Play Store

Another new feature is the Continue on PC that lets you view the photos directly on PC without making major changes to any of your devices.

The DPA issued a lengthy release about the matter, in which it is explained that there are almost 4 million active Windows 10 devices with Windows 10 Home and Pro in the Netherlands.

Microsoft offers two levels of telemetry: basic and full.

Commenting on the decision, Wilbert Tomesen, vice-chairman of the DPA, said: "It turns out that Microsoft's operating system follows about every step you take on your computer". Microsoft does not clearly inform users about the type of data it uses, and for which objective.

Microsoft Edge Preview is listed as being compatible with smartphones and tablets running Android 4.4 KitKat and newer builds of Google's operating system. "They are not informed which data are being used for what goal, neither that based on these data, personalized advertisements and recommendations can be presented, if those users have not opted out from these default settings on installation or afterwards". Microsoft has noted that some features still need to be added, but my short time with the Android app has been pretty smooth so far.

According to the Dutch data protection authority, Windows 10 is in violation of local privacy laws concerning the use of automated data collection. The first is to help Microsoft fix Windows for devices on which it experiences errors, and the second is for Microsoft to serve personalized ads to Windows 10 users. Further, the agency claims that Microsoft makes it very hard for the users to approve their personal data for processing.

Microsoft Edge will also be used as the company's Kindle reader of sorts, with the app already having a dedicated section for Books which is presently empty and will contain your books purchased from the Microsoft Store in the future. Microsoft announced Edge as the Internet Explorer replacement for Windows 10; effectively edging out its old browser that was a toast of millions of people back in the days. Once you receive the Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update, you will be able to pick up where left off by seamlessly moving content between your Android (or iOS) device and PC. Facebook used to do something similar by making users' posts more public nearly every time it updated its privacy policy. As a matter of fact, launching the iOS and Android versions of the browser is no assurance that it will dominate and push others aside; a lot still has to be done.
