My flow "failed to connect"

  • Flow connection not working for me too.

  • the same with me not possible to use my flow huawei p10 android 8 and windows 10 built 1803. need maybe upgrade.

  • I was having the same issue, be sure you have allowed opera touch to access your camera in the app rights on your phone, did the trick for me! 🙂

  • Same problem. Windows 10, Opera latest version 57.0.3098.91 for 64-bit. Opera Touch latest version, camera enabled on Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro running Android 8.1.0. Cannot connect using scan or manual entry. 'Failed to connect.' Spain

  • Same problem. Windows 10, Opera latest version 57.0.3098.91 for 64-bit. Opera Touch latest version, camera enabled . Slovenia

  • Same issue. HTC 10. Android 8.0.0. Windows 10 1803. Opera Touch 1.12.3. Opera Desktop 57.0.3098.91. United States.

  • Same problem. Windows 7 64bit + Opera 57.0.3098.91, Nokia 5 + Android 8.1.0 + Opera Touch 1.12.3 (latest versions at the time of posting). Belgrade, Serbia, connecting through Orion Telekom (https://oriontelekom.rs).

    Initially when I open the "My Flow" tab it flickers, constantly refreshing its content. When I manage to "catch" the "Connect" button and get the QR code then scan that code using Opera Touch on my phone, I get the "failed to connect" error message. Entering the code manually didn't help either.

  • Hey everyone,
    had the exact same problem everyone described. So i decided to try one last time, and now it worked.
    What I did was on my PC in Options for Flow to just disconnect my PC from Flow. Afterwards I started Flow up again and tried to connect my phone and then it suddenly worked. Don't know why but I hope you guys might fix it the same way and Opera can fix it to begin with.
    Cheers

  • @rassnul Oddly enough, now it worked for me as well. After pressing "Disconnect" the "My Flow" tab started flashing again, but stopped after it reloaded itself 3-4 times. Not sure if scrolling the "My Flow" tab to the bottom with the mouse wheel had anything to do with it. Then I generated the QR code and scanned it with no error.

    I'm still having this issue, eight months (!) later. Where are you both pressing "Disconnect"? There is neither a disconnect button in the desktop app nor in the android app. I can only deactivate "The Flow" feature but this does not fix the problem.

  • @m4ssacre It's in the My Flow sidebar. Press the cog icon and you should get a list of connected devices, along with the Disconnect button.

  • Opera for Windows 57.0.3098.116
    Opera for Mac 58.0.3135.53
    Opera Touch for iOS 1.4.0
    Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

    Running the latest version of Opera for Windows, Mac OS, and iOS (one iPhone and one iPad, and none of them can connect without doing an emergency reset, which means I have to reconnect all of my devices. The connection always works the first time, but never the second time, on either the Mac or the Win machine. This feature is seriously borked, and I was hoping to replace Apple's iCloud service since I don't like using Safari and I can't run Safari on Windows. Looking at the posts on here, there doesn't seem to be any fix available so I'm just adding my voice to the rest.
