Not sure if this has been asked before, but is there an ETA for an ARM compatible build of Edgium? [edit: it's here! Not native, but the 32bit version works pretty good in emulation mode]

 

I have a Samsung Galaxy Book2 ARM tablet, and I'd very much like to use the Chromium version of Edge. The original Edge is painfully slow on YouTube, and doesn't support custom searches, both of which are a regular pain point.

Hi, that's a great question. The majority of upcoming features and updates for supporting additional OS versions do not have actual hard dates attached. 

The ARM version is being worked on and hopefully will release soon, since I am looking forward to it as well! LOL

I would advise to keep watch on the "cutting edge" page since impending updates appear there first.

I hope this helps.

So it turns out that this we can now at least run a compatible version: going to https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/  on your WOA / WOS device and running the installer now works just fine. Would be nice if this was communicated more clearly to people with Win10 ARM devices.

 

Note that this installs 32bit Edge. Not sure if WOA even supports 64bit apps, but if so, I'm curious if this 32bit version will auto-update to a 64bit install when the time is right, or whether I'd need to uninstall / reinstall to make the switch once I somehow find out that a 64bit version is available/compatible. 

 

Either way, glad it's here. So far so good, everything seems to work as intended. Goodbye slow YouTube and Hello custom searches!

@ChromeRefugee

When I use your posted link c2rsetup.officeapps.live.com is downloaded, however when I attempt to run the file it wants me to download an app in order to run it. In theory the app needed is the office deployment tool. Any tips you can offer to get this baby running? 

A browser that works would be an outstanding feature for my HP Elite 3.

@saabnut The HP Elite X3 is a Windows Phone 10 device right? I don't have experience with that model, I was talking about installing Edge Chromium on a WOA device (full Windows, not Win10 Phone). I don't think Win10 phone includes the emulation code to run x86 apps such as the current Edge Chromium. 

@ChromeRefugee Yes, HP Elite 3 is a windows 10 phone. And for sure it won't run x86 apps, which was another disappointment for me when I purchased it.
