After months of waiting, Microsoft is finally rolling out the tab and history sync feature to users of the non-experimental stable version of the Edge browser.
Up to this point, the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser has synchronized passwords and bookmarks, and also allowed open websites to be sent from a mobile device to a computer. However, the new Microsoft Edge lacked features as familiar to Chrome users as syncing history and tabs. In December, they began testing the synchronization of history and tabs in the beta version of the browser.
The change is done on the server-side, so users don’t need to take any action to get the new feature.
The function must be activated on all devices where synchronization is required. The new settings are available for both Windows computers and mobile devices.
