Sync V2 Doesn't sync open tabs

Description of the issue:
Bookmarks and history are synchronised, but not open tabs.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Open a sync chain in Brave on macOS Catalina.
Add my (Android) mobile device to the sync chain by scanning the QR code.
Select History, Open Tabs and Bookmarks on both devices.

Reproduces how often:

I’ve had this sync chain setup for 2 days.

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Version 1.12.112 Chromium: 84.0.4147.125 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Brave 1.12.113, Chromium 84.0.4147.125 (Android 10)

Type of devices currently running on the Sync chain in question:
Macbook Pro (macOS Catalina)
Samsung Note 10 (Android 10)

Additional Information:

I have closed the settings pages, restarted the browsers etc.
Both devices show in the sync chain.
Both devices show last active date as today.

Known issue that I saw on Windows but could not get clarification during the beta. Open Tabs from other devices are not sync’d in the current version 2. As well Open Tabs aka those tabs you open manually on a device and enter a URL manually is limited to the 4 most recent tabs. That too is a known issue.

Both of these are suppose to fix in the future.

Strangely, typing this seems to have made this work to some extent :slight_smile: - I do now have some tabs from desktop sync’d to mobile under the recent tabs menu.

I bet you only see 4 tabs max ? That is a bug / known issue in sync v2 and has to be fixed along with the inability to see Tabs from Other Devices which is also not currently working.

I found interesting workaround. In Brave browser history you see only 4 open tabs max, but I have installed Smartup extensions for mouse gestures and there is also gesture to open tools like Synced Tabs and I can see all of them. Also on Android mobile you can see more than 4.

Hmm, it is not showing all opened tabs too.

I’ve no solution as this irks me with Win10 to Droid Sync.

I just thought I’d share a well written (but lengthy) write up concerning Flags in Chrome.
