After few months, yesterday I decided to try the Edge beta for Android again, and I found out the default sync option was set to Edge legacy. I was surprised, I was expecting that after Microsoft released Edge stable (Chromium) for desktop/Mac, the mobile version would be syncing with it by default as well.

@HotCakeX Interesting question! I'll reach out to the mobile team and let you know if there're any additional insights.

@HotCakeX Here's the short & sweet answer: we're in the process of rolling out the new MS Edge, but there are still a large number of Android users on the legacy version, so it's the current default. But stay tuned for updates! :)
