olby Atmos


Compatibility across platforms is now achievable with the new Microsoft Edge as it supports several operating systems including Windows 7, Allowing syncing across multiple devices.  


Embraced By Google


Even though the new Edge is built with Chromium a Google’s development engine not all of Google service are supported, recent testing shows that google chrome-based app such as Stadia and Google meet are not supported, even though they support in Beta versions of Chrome.
