Opera doesn't Sync inspite of being signed in.

  • This happened after the "Temporary Server error. Can't sign in" error was solved. So I am able to login to my opera account on my android, but the browser doesn't sync anything at all. Upon tapping the "Speed dials on other devices" tile (Grey with cloud & circular arrows inside it), it says I have no speed dials on other devices. But I have 137 bookmarks on my Windows (10) Opera, which syncs perfectly with Opera on another Windows 10 machine.
    Also, on Opera for Windows > Bookmarks (Heart icon) > Other Speed dials, my android device is not listed.Also, tabs & history are not synced & are not visible on Opera for Windows. But strangely, logging in to my opera account on the opera website & going to their sync service page, under devices it shows my phone along with my other 2 Windows devices.
    I use my own encrypted passphrase for Sync. Could that be the issue for not syncing on Opera for Android?

    Details:
    Phone: Moto G4 Play (android 6.0.1)
    Opera v42.7.2246.114996
    PC: OS: Windows 10 Pro (Build 1703, OS build v15063.540), 64-bit.
    Opera Browser v47.0.2631.71 (PGO)

  • Same problem here, been going on for some time.

    I was using opera developer on win10 where there is the same syncing problems :-(

    Had to install the regular version of opera to be able to sync from my pc

    Luckily there is a way to manualy export/import bookmarks and passwords (after flagging opera://flags#password-import-export) in the windows version so we can manually sync (which personally I way prefer above "cloud syncing")

    I would like to know if there is a manual way to import bookmarks/passwords in the android app.

    Thanks opera ;-)

  • Sync from desktop to Android has always been sort of iffy. I managed to get this 2-in-1 to sync last month, but I don't think the previous tablet ever did.

    If you're signed in, browse around a while. It seems to take a while - like maybe 10 minutes while Opera is running.
