Description of the issue:
I’m curious about the sync frequency between Android and Linux. Specifically, I want to know how soon after opening a new tab on one device I should be able to see that on other devices in my sync chain.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Go to Android, open Brave
- Open some URL in a new tab, maybe close a couple open tabs
- Go to Linux, open Brave
- Examine the History>Other Devices menu
- Note that it hasn’t changed
- Wait a while
- Repeat 5 & 6 every now and then until you notice the change
Reproduces how often:
All the time
Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Linux: Version 1.27.109 Chromium: 92.0.4515.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Android: 1.28.105 Chromium: 92.0.4515.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Type of devices currently running on the Sync chain in question:
Android & Linux
I’m mostly interested in the Android-to-Linux direction. I might open an article from my newsfeed and realize it would be easier to read (view images, select text, etc) on my laptop. I often wait long enough that I go off and do something else, then forget about the item I wanted to read until I stumble upon it later while deleting tabs in my Android Brave instance (everything creates a new tab, it seems). On those rare days when I’m feeling clever, I will share the URL via Signal (note to self). Still, seems like automatic sync should happen quickly enough that I don’t have to resort to tricks or get distracted by other stuff.
