New Microsoft Edge

Frequent Contributor

Since the official release of the Edge Chromunim will be January 15, 2020, will the beta versions be closed? Does it matter what version of Windows I have to get the new Edge? Does this also means that the current Edge on Windows computer will be replaced with the new update?

Hi,
Beta/Dev/Canary channels are not going anywhere, they will stay and will be used by Microsoft to continue the development of the Edge browser. just like Google uses Beta/Dev/Canary channels to develop their Chrome browser.

Also about how you get the stable version of Edge on Windows:

Microsoft will be pushing out the new Edge via Windows Update to the majority of Windows 10 users

"Windows 10 RS4 and newer" will receive it automatically
RS4 (Redstone 4) - released April 2018 - Build 17134.1

 

to know about the details of replacement, please read this article:
