Microsoft Edge now syncs browser history and open tabs across devices

Microsoft Edge’s new feature makes it easy to jump back into sites you recently visited.

Updated November 17, 2020: This post was updated to clarify the feature is currently on the Dev and Canary channels of Microsoft Edge.

What you need to know

  • Microsoft is rolling out new history features for Microsoft Edge.
  • You can now sync browsing history and open tabs across devices.
  • The new feature is rolling out gradually and is currently available on Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary.

Microsoft Edge just gained a new feature that makes it easy to jump back into sites you recently visited. On the new Microsoft Edge, you can now sync open tabs and your browsing history across devices. The feature is rolling out now to Microsoft Edge and Canary, so you might have to wait a bit to see it if you aren’t an Insider.

Microsoft designed the new history experience in a similar way to the recently revamped favorites experience in Edge. The functionality has three pivot options; an all listing, one for recently closed items, and one for tabs you recently closed on other devices. The feature is rolling out in phases, so some people won’t see the recently closed on other devices option yet.

The recently closed feature shows the last 25 tabs and windows from all of your past sessions, not just your most recent browsing session. To make it easier to find your browsing history, you can now add the history page to the toolbar on Microsoft Edge.

Syncing browsing history across devices is one of the browser’s most requested features, according to Microsoft. Syncing works across devices and operating systems, including Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.
