Microsoft will keep up with the update release schedule for Chrome announced by Google last week. The company has announced that it will adjust its release schedule for Microsoft Edge every four weeks.
“As contributors to the Chromium project, we look forward to the new regular 4-week cycle rate announced by Google to bring innovations to customers even faster,” Microsoft wrote in a blog post on Friday. said.
The change will be rolled out with the Edge 94 release, which is expected to be released in September 2021. Google also announced that it plans to change the distribution order of the Chrome version in the third quarter of the year with the release of Chrome 94. However, it did not refer to a specific month like Microsoft.
Like Google, Microsoft offers organizations the opportunity to participate in a longer release pace. Within the extended Stable Edition schedule, a new release will be released every eight weeks. However, Microsoft said the four-week pace would be the default.
Edge isn’t the only Chromium-based web browser adapting to its four-week update release cycle. Brave has announced that he will participate in this new calendar.
