Effective March 2023, Adobe starts embedding Acrobat PDF technology in Microsoft Edge.
Together, Adobe and Microsoft are updating the PDF experience in Microsoft Edge by powering the built-in PDF reader with the Adobe Acrobat PDF engine. This will give users a unique PDF experience that includes higher fidelity for more accurate colors and graphics, improved performance, strong security for PDF handling and greater accessibility – including better text selection and read-aloud narration. These capabilities will continue to be free of cost.
Users who want more advanced digital document features – such as the ability to edit text and images, convert PDFs to other file formats and combine files – can purchase an Acrobat subscription that enables access to these features anywhere, including directly inside Microsoft Edge via a browser extension. Microsoft Edge users with existing Adobe Acrobat subscriptions can use the Acrobat extension inside Edge at no extra cost.
