Microsoft Edge Insider Dev channel officially launches on older Windows versions

Microsoft Edge Insider Dev channel officially launches on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1

The Dev channel for Microsoft's new Edge Insider browser is now readily available on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, the Microsoft Edge team revealed today. The Canary channel, which gets daily updates, released on these older versions of Windows recently, and it's great to see Microsoft bringing the Dev channel to these users so promptly.

The Dev channel is currently on a weekly release cycle, and the latest Dev construct was released the other day with dark mode improvements and more. A Beta channel that will be upgraded every six weeks will be available later on Windows and macOS.

We remind you that you can install both the Canary and Dev channels of Microsoft Edge on your PC, and both apps will be updated immediately once a brand-new build is readily available. All preview builds are readily available to download on Microsoft's Edge Insider website.
