Brave sync_Desktop to Android

Tried everything. Unrooted so safetynet isn’t an issue, officially installed Brave from Play store, on latest as of 11/8. No matter what I try, I can’t scan the QR code OR use the sync code successfully. It stays on the ‘Loading devices…’ screen until I force stop>clear data and try to start over. Brave has been fine on desktop, and mobile seperately, but trying to sync these has been a nightmare.
Apologies if this was resolved already, but I need help.
TIA.
