Syncing between devices has been a feature in most browsers for quite some time, allowing for quick and seamless session switching across multiple devices. It lets users conveniently share their browser settings, extensions, etc between all of their connected devices. For example, if you are using Edge, you can share your data and sessions between your Windows PC, your Android phone, and your iPad. 

Until recently though, Microsoft Edge’s syncing features weren’t fully functional, however, Microsoft has now finished adding a range of core syncing features, including full tab sync support. With tab sync enabled, it’s now possible to share all your open tabs between all of your devices. So you won’t have to reload everything each and every time you switch devices. You will, however, need to enable this setting on each device, otherwise, Tab Sync won’t work properly
