    Default Chrome Sync Across Devices Problem

    For the past couple days, I can't see open tabs of other devices in my history page in Chrome desktop. Chrome is up to date on my PC Windows 8 and all of my Android devices. On both of my Android devices, Chrome sync is on but when I go to see other devices, it gives me a message to sign into Chrome on my computer, which I already am. I've signed out and back in several times. I've looked at dashboard and everything looks good. Any ideas on what the issue could be? I'm out of ideas.

    I had that message for a brief moment, then it showed everything. Are you using Chrome Beta for your devices?

    No, just the normal Chrome browser. It almost seems like it's an account problem. I have a Windows 8 PC, a Windows 7 PC, a LG G Pad 8.3, and a HTC One M7. None of them show other device tabs even though they are all signed into and have sync enabled.

    Maybe a cache clear?

    No go. I also just noticed that my Google Drive isn't syncing either.

    Logout of the account from the device then log back in. If there's no improvement then there could be an issue with the network. Just in case, reboot all connected devices.

    Thanks for trying. I just noticed that in my google sync settings, the item "internet" isn't syncing. It says at the bottom that sync is experiencing problems... This is driving me crazy.

    That might be why there is issues. Have you forced a sync?

    I've unchecked it and rechecked it, turned sync off and back on. It always gives me an error.

    Hey,
    I have been having the same issue!

    Apparently Google knows about this, and is rolling out a server-side update!
    https://code.google.com/p/chromium/i...tail?id=373424

    "Those tab sync issues are likely caused by a server error we recently discovered. The fix is in the process of rolling out, and when it does that should resolve itself.

    The tab sync issue is unrelated to the bookmarks though"

    This link goes to a page that doesn't exist "The page you asked for does not exist."

    I've been having the same tab syn issues though, for about a week now.

    Try this link... https://code.google.com/p/chromium/i...tail?id=373424

    When, do you think they will fix this issue. Really annoying.
