Microsoft Edge recently received a new feature that will definitely make it more appealing to users. The latest Windows 10 build brings EPUB file format support to Edge, allowing users to read their favorite EPUB books directly in the browser.
All Windows 10 users will be able to use this new feature in early 2017, when Microsoft launches the awaited Windows 10 Creators Update. Microsoft Edge offers a complete reading experience to users, allowing them to customize the browsers’ reading interface and change the font and text size. Also, users can choose between 3 themes and inserts bookmarks.
Microsoft Edge lets you read EPUB books
The reading experience will get even better with the Windows 10 Creators Update! In addition to providing a great reading experience for PDF files – you can now read any unprotected e-book in the EPUB file format with Microsoft Edge. When you open an unprotected e-book in Microsoft Edge, you will be taken into a customizable reading experience where you can change the font and text size and choose between 3 themes: light, sepia, and dark. As you read, you can leave bookmarks.
You can use the table of contents or seek bar at the bottom of the browser to navigate through an e-book. Moreover, you can also search for words or phrases and use Cortana to define specific words.
If you’re not an Insider, you still need to use a third party application or extension to read EPUB files. Until the Windows 10 Creators Update is released, you can check out our dedicated article on the best EPUB readers to use on Windows 10.
