Microsoft Edge is currently affected by a bug that prevents Collections from syncing across devices. Several users posted about the problems on Reddit, which led to a post by a Microsoft representative. Affected systems cannot enable or disable the Collection Sync button when the flag for the feature is enabled. There are also sync issues with the feature when connecting mobile and desktop devices.
"It appears a few of you have mentioned that you are having issues with your Collections being stuck on Sync," said Microsoft representative and Reddit user CM_Darlene. "I know this is frustrating, but the good news is our team is zoned in and investigating. Woot woot!"
CM_Darline broke down the current status of the issue in their post:
"#1 - Collection Sync button unable to enable/disable when feature flag is ON
ETA fix: Aiming for next Android release
#2 - Desktop/mobile prism sync issues
ETA fix: Aiming for 8/8 104 release"
Microsoft is aiming to roll out a fix for the issues with the next Android release of its browser as well as the upcoming Edge 104 update for desktop. Those aren't firm release goals, but users shouldn't have to wait that long to receive a fix.
"TLDR: The team is working diligently to resolve these issues, thank you to everyone who has posted and/or submitted feedback with diagnostics," said CM_Darlene.
Microsoft Edge (opens in new tab)
Microsoft Edge is the default browser for Windows 11. It's powered by Chromium, so it's compatible with the vast majority of websites and supports Chrome extensions. The browser is also available on Android and iOS, allowing you to sync content across devices.
