How do I open/transfer tabs from other devices? (Synced Brave accounts but tabs aren't showing on other devices.)

So, I already installed the latest versions of brave on both my Macbook and iMac, went and followed the instructions how to sync my brave browser for both. Now the bookmarks and passwords are working just that the tabs from my Macbook aren’t appearing on on my iMac.

Now, I’ve read some topics about this here in the community but since they close the discussion after a month, I am now creating a new discussion about it.

So far there is no solution to this, but what I did was I manually transferred the tabs to my iMac. This is by right clicking the tab and selecting the option ‘Send to (name of other device)’. I don’t know how exactly it sends it but I do get a notification on my iMac that it received a shared tab from my Macbook, and when you click it it automatically opens the tab on my browser. Although I tried doing this to a group of tabs, but when I right click it the option of sharing isn’t there.

So I guess this is the closest solution for me to transfer tabs between devices. I do hope they fix this in the following updates and actually to indicate if the sync is successful or not so that we can keep track which did and which is still syncing. I seriously didn’t know how long I’d have to wait to see that the data had been synced.

Similar situation here. One day it was working, the next day, it wasn’t.

Not sure if this is due to the latest Brave update or if something else but I am not able to sync tabs across devices. It shows up a completely blank page. Hopefully someone is able to figure out the issue since I use that feature quite a lot and it’s just so convenient.
