Update to the iOS Microsoft Edge app brings cool new feature allowing users to read foreign sites
As spotted by WindowsBlogItalia (via MSPoweruser), Microsoft has updated the mobile Edge browser for iOS with a number of new features. Version 42.11.4 comes with an instant translation feature. Web pages that are in a foreign language are instantly translated into the user's native language. This is accomplished by integrating Microsoft Translate into the Edge mobile app.

Besides the instant translation feature, the update allows those signing into the app through a company account or an educational institution to have secure access to private intranet networks. It also allows those users to view web pages in the PC timeline. Additionally, the update adds various performance improvements and bug fixes.

While the update is available only for the iOS version of the app right now, there is no reason not to expect it to eventually hit the Android version of the Microsoft Edge app. The current version of the Microsoft Edge browser app available in the Google Play Store is version 42.0.2.3350.

Edge already has it on the Android app... You can turn it on or off or let it ask you everytime.
