Beta version ( of Microsoft Edge for Android crashing on x86 Android devices

Copper Contributor



As title says, I have an Android Head Unit with CPU Spreadtrum SC9853i that supports x86_x64 architecture. I was downloading from the Play Store the beta version however as soon as the apps starts it hangs:




So I went to APKMirror and found an older version ( which works flawlessly. So I tried to upgrade from the PlayStore again to the latest beta version and once the app launches, the UI shows huge buttons, like it is all messed up and shows a popup that said "Edge stopped working". I tried clearing the app data, cache and force-stop the app. When I launch it again, it shows the blank page (such as the one attached earlier) and the browser hangs.


Looking at APKMirror repository, it seems that version was the latest version developed on x86 architecture, has it been abandoned?


Attached some screenshots of the device information as well:
