Multiple accounts on Microsoft Edge Android

Valued Contributor

Hi there, I am switching to Microsoft Edge on android for the first time from Chrome on my mom's phone as my phone is dead and I cannot have a new one due to lockdown. I was checking if I can create a new profile i.e. my profile to my mom's profile but I am not seeing the option so I am asking that can we add multiple profiles on android Edge(Excluding work or school account) by any way or there is no option in Edge Android? I am using Edge(Stable) version 45.03.4.4955InkedScreenshot_20200519_125821_LI.jpg

@Deleted @TheShaunSaw  Unfortunately Edge on Mobile platforms only supports 1 personal and 1 work/school account for now. Definitely file feedback in the app so that we can prioritize this work for you. 

Wow. Thats is almost an oversight. I'm trying to switch from Chrome to Edge and this is a major drawback.

1. Can't have multiple persons accounts on android edge.
2. Can't sync work account between android and windows. Needs administrator to enable it!

Both of these aren't a problem with Chrome!

I surely am hoping this feature will be available asap.

Any idea if this is on the roadmap as a feature?

 

It is such a show stopper for us who want to migrate from chrome to edge on android, but don't have an enterprise account to enable sync on that.

 

Please help!

Any update or answer?
