In contrast, the Edge Browser's beta is not yet open to all on Android but Microsoft has opened up its iOS beta testing to all users.

"We welcome the opportunity to continue to work with the Dutch DPA on their comments related to Windows 10 Home and Pro, and we will continue to cooperate with the DPA to find appropriate solutions", said Rogers. Other things like favourites, reading lists, and bookmarks are also synced across devices.

Microsoft Launcher comes with a touch of fluent design, the new design language is being used in the Windows 10 operating system and surprisingly Microsoft is also bringing some of the fluent design elements to the Android devices.

Although collection of data is a generally unpopular practice from a consumer standpoint, Microsoft does have valid uses and benefits from collecting extensive metadata.

Voice Search: You can now use your voice to search the web. Due to Microsoft's approach users lack control of their data. You'll be sent a link that will take you to the Play Store page for Microsoft Edge, where you can install the browser. Microsoft has been saying that it collects and processes the data from the Windows 10 to secure and improve its products and services, fix issues and keep the devices up-to-date.

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) said on Friday that, after investigating Microsoft's Windows 10 Home and Pro operating systems - of which there are four million users in the Netherlands - it has concluded that the firm "does not clearly inform users about the type of data it uses, and for which purpose". After installing the app, you'll be asked to sign into it with your Microsoft account, which is an entirely optional step and one Microsoft advises you to make to enjoy a more personalized user experience. Inkpad document contents can also be collected when full telemetry is enabled. The information that Microsoft provides in the installation screen of the Creators Update about the different choices for data processing, falls short.

Microsoft offers users an overview of the categories of data that it collects through basic telemetry, but only informs people in a general way, with examples, about the categories of personal data it collects through full telemetry. With that, the company is now moving on to platforms like Android and iOS.
