“Recently Visited” tab doesn’t list search.brave.com to add Brave Search as default search engine on Android.
It only finally worked, days later, just now.
I had to sign in to Brave Community to file this bug report, and once I used 2FA code to access Brave Community, both Brave Community and Brave Search immediately appeared under the Recently Visited tab.
I was then and only then able to add Brave Search as default engine.
In previous attempts, I was able to validate and gain permission to access the search engine successfully. I even signed into Gmail in the Brave Android app so I could click the link and open it within the same browsing session.
Once again, just to be clear, I was always able to validate each time and use Brave Search. But I could never make it my default search engine until I finally signed into Brave Community just now.
- Validate via email as approved Brave Search early testing participant.
- Visit search.brave.com in Brave Android app.
- Touch three vertical dots, then navigate to Settings > Standard Tab and open the options.
Expected result: The “Recently Visited” tab should appear and search.brave.com should be listed.
