That’s it! This will restart your Edge browser on Android and enable the hidden PDF Viewer. The new PDF viewer is still under testing and has many bugs and glitches. Sometimes, the PDF viewer may not open and break the content of the PDF file.

How to Use the Microsoft Edge PDF Viewer on Android?

The above steps will activate the Edge PDF viewer on your Android smartphone. To use the PDF viewer application, you need to click on any PDF files that you want to view.

When you click on the PDF files, the Edge browser for Android will download the file and open it in the full-screen PDF viewer. It’s worth noting that it’s just a PDF viewer, not a PDF editor.

To edit the PDF files, you need to use PDF editor apps for Android. Sometimes, the built-in PDF file won’t open and can break the content of files due to bugs and glitches.

The built-in PDF viewer could be handy for those who don’t want to install additional files to view a PDF file.
