"Sorry, due to high demand for the Microsoft Edge Preview for iOS, we have exceeded Apple’s 10,000 TestFlight user limit. Please stay tuned for its upcoming availability in the App Store!"

"We’re adding the last few touches to the Microsoft Edge Preview for Android app! Please enter your email address and we’ll notify you as soon as it becomes available in the Google Play Store."

Need to wait a little bit, it seems.

The Android app for Microsoft Edge is now available. 

Beware:   There is a fake/scam Edge app in the Google Play Store that is not from Microsoft.  See https://twitter.com/ActiveNick/status/918495850158051328

Legitimate app:  Microsoft Edge Preview on iOS & Android – Now Available or Microsoft Edge Preview - Android Apps on Google Play
