The new application model is introduced in Microsoft Endpoint configuration Manager 1910 to support the Microsoft Edge (chromium) browser.

You can deploy the Microsoft Edge browser version 77 and later use MECM|ConfigMgr|SCCM 1910 to windows ten computers and also have options to choose the Beta, Dev, and Stable channel with the Version of the Microsoft Edge client to deploy.

Microsoft Edge Stable Channel

The Stable Channel is intended for broad deployment in your organization, and it is the channel that most users should be on.

It is the most stable of the channels and results from the stabilization of the feature set available in the prior Beta Channel release.

New features ship about every six weeks. Security and quality updates ship as needed. A release from the Stable Channel is considered supported until the next release from the channel is available.

Microsoft Edge Beta Channel

The Beta Channel is intended for production deployment in your organization to a representative sample set of users. It is a supported release, and each release from Beta is supported until the next release from this channel is available.

This is a great opportunity to validate that things work as expected in your environment. If you encounter an issue, have it remediated before the release to the Stable Channel.

New features ship about every 6 weeks. Security and quality updates ship as needed.

Dev Channel

The Dev Channel is intended to help you plan and develop with the latest capabilities of Microsoft Edge, but with higher quality than the Canary Channel.

This is your opportunity to get an early look at what is coming next and prepare for the next Beta release.
