History and tab sync features roll out for Microsoft Edge

In browser battles, Microsoft Edge didn’t make much of a splash after rebuilding from Google’s Chromium base. It did add some notable tweets and features, but like Chrome, it eventually gained the ability to sync search history and tabs across devices.

The option was previously spotted on mobile devices with the release of an Edge beta build for Android. It now looks like the option is fully rotated in all builds, allowing you to sync open tabs and browsing history with other instances of Microsoft Edge running on other devices.

According to The Verge, the option is slowly rotating “slowly” with only a few regions currently having options within the Edge. The publication suggests that you login and enable “sync” but the UK will be among the first markets to get the option to sync history with Microsoft Edge browsers and open tabs with Microsoft Edge browsers.

In our case, the option initially appeared to show a message that said “Coming soon!” I’ll launch it as soon as it’s ready. “” A simple restart of the Edge enables the option on several of our Windows 10 devices, though:

Basically, by toggling the “History” and “Open Tabs” options in the sync settings, you’ll be able to move to the right wherever you put Microsoft Edge on PC, Mac, iOS or Android. This will help the transition for many who may be looking at Edge as an alternative to Safari or indeed Google Chrome.

You should navigate to Settings> Profile> Sync to see if you have options. Here you should have the option to enable “History” and “Open Tabs”. If you’re able to sync your browser history and open tabs on devices in your region with Microsoft Edge, be sure to let us know in the comments section below.
