Microsoft has now added support for web push notifications in the latest version of their Edge browser on Windows. The feature was part of the April 2018 update, which started rolling out in early May.
PushAlert now works with Edge on both the Desktop and Mobile (Android). Push Notifications support for Edge is available from v17.17134 on Windows and all versions of Edge on Android.
We have begun rolling out the update to all our customers. As with all our platform updates, no changes are required. The update should be available for all our customers within the next couple of hours.
Microsoft Edge currently commands over 4.15% global browser market share. Given this is the default browser on Windows, these numbers are bound to grow. Moreover, notifications on Edge live in the Action Center on Windows, so they can be interacted with later as well.
Recently, we also added support for UC Browser as well. We have added an option to use a different opt-in theme for mobile browsers too, to fine tune your opt-in strategy along with recurring notifications. All these features are now available based on the plan on your account.
