Windows 10x Insider channels can now be installed on Windows 10X

Microsoft has released the MSIX installer packages of Edge Insider channels for Windows 10X and HoloLens 2.

The big news is the introduction of Microsoft Edge Insider for HoloLens 2. This is the first time the new Microsoft Edge will be made available for the WCOS-based HoloLens 2 headset, allowing customers to take advantage of the new and improved web rendering and performance capabilities of the new Edge.

The MSIX version of the new Microsoft Edge, when installed on a WCOS product, operates via a SHIM that allows the legacy application to run as if it were a modern app, translating those legacy APIs and talking to the OS as if it were native.

This was previewed with the Windows 10X emulator builds that were released earlier in the year, and today’s Insider builds operate the same way on HoloLens 2.

If you have the Windows 10X emulator or a HoloLens 2 headset around, you can download the Microsoft Edge Beta, Dev, or Canary MSIX now and install the browser today.

Try it and let us know what you think.
