You can now install any extension in Microsoft Edge Canary for Android | Laptop News

Microsoft is actively testing extension support in the Edge for Android. Until now, you could only choose from a couple of extensions in Edge Canary. However, in the Edge Canary version 125.0.2487, you can install any extension from the Microsoft Edge Add-ons if you’re lucky.

It is worth noting that Microsoft Edge stable has also received support for extensions, but it’s hidden behind the experimental flags. If you want to try your favourite desktop extensions on mobile, you can download Edge Canary version 125.0.2487 or newer on your Android phone.

You don’t need to log in to a Microsoft account to use extensions on mobile. After installing the browser, use these steps to install any extension:

  1. Launch Edge Canary and tap the hamburger icon in the bottom right corner.
  2. Tap on Settings.
  3. Then tap on the About Microsoft Edge option.
  4. Go to the bottom of the page and tap on the “Edge Canary Version” five times to enable the Developer option.
  5. Go back to the Settings page. You will see a new option at the bottom to add extensions to the browser.

Since the Microsoft Edge add-on store isn’t available for mobile devices yet, you’ll need an extension ID to add it to Edge Canary for Android via Developer settings:

  1. Visit the Microsoft Edge Add-ons website and click on any extension you wish to add.
  2. Copy the extension ID from the URL. It is mentioned after the last “/” in the URL.
  3. Tap on Developer options and select the “Extension install by id” option.
  4. Paste the extension ID you copied from the URL and tap on OK.
  5. Tap on the hamburger icon in the bottom right corner.
  6. Select the Extensions option. The newly added extension will appear in the list.
  7. Tap on an extension from the list to use it on any open tab.
