    Default Chrome sync not working on Galaxy S5

    I own a Nexus 10, GS5 and a Windows 7 PC.
    All are running the latest version of Chrome.

    Bookmarks are syncing fine.
    Tab sync is not working at all. On any of the three devices.

    I tried uninstalling chrome and reinstalling it with no luck. I have tried signing out of chrome and back in with no luck also,

    And yes Chrome tab sync is enabled...


    Anybody else having this issue?
    Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Called Play Store support... they couldn't help me.

    Yes, it is happening to me, I began noticing it a couple of days ago, on my Asus Transformer Prime and the S5, I can see all my PCs between them, but not any mobile devices, the only thing that I can see now is that on the mobile versions now on the other devices tab it clearly say that you can see the pages you have opened on your computers no mention of all devices.

    Problem is that the computers can see my Asus history but not my s5, and it was working last time I checked, maybe a week ago. At least from the PC I can see my tablet, but no luck from mobile devices to PCs, something changed this week, let's wait for a fix.

    Thank God im not the one one!
    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"

    Same here 310714.
    On my s5, Open Google, Go to Settings (three dots), Go to Recent Tabs, and at the top reads "Other devices" (although no "other" devices shown).
    Little further down the page is (against a blue rectangular background) is "Enable Sync". I tap it to my hearts content, but NOTHING happens. No tabs shown. Not working :-(

    I have checked within Chrome (on my pc) and it IS set to "sync all" (under Advanced settings).

    Anyone any ideas, please??

    Cheers

    Hi there,

    I was going through the same issue till I found someone online who had it solved.

    In your settings list go to "user and backup" and choose "accounts"

    go to your "google" account and choose the user you wish to sync (there are people who have multiple google emails linked to their phones and i'm one of them)

    Scroll down in your sync settings after clicking on the account name towards "sync chrome"

    Make sure your mark it as on

    This should fix the problem as it did on my device.

    Do share with us if it worked or not.

    Cheers and good luck
