Opera GX: My Flow Connection Problem

  • For some reason every time I try to connect my Phone's Opera Browsers to the GX, it always has a Failed Connection in the Phone's end.

    Am I the only one?

  • @dlowfees I am experiencing a similiar issue. When I scanned the QR code on my phone, i got a failed connection error, but on the PC Opera GX I can already see the phone in My Flow Devices, except that My Flow is empty and doesn't have the items that i can see on my phones Opera Touch My Flow.

  • @dlowfees Same issue. It doesn't work.

    UPD: Try to disconnect all devices, that been connected. Maybe it'll work.

  • @dlowfees Same issue (Got the app today for iOS so I will retry again later and reply to my post if it should suddenly happen to work for some reason.). Hoping this gets fixed so that I won't have to delete the app and in worst case switch to some alternative as I've been really enjoying the browser otherwise.

  • @PawOpera Even though the messages are not visible for some reason I still get a blue notification in my sidebar onto the "My flow"-tab/tile whenever I enter a message in "My flow" on my phone though, so there seems to be some kind of connection between the devices. Have tried disabling MyFlow and re-enabling it to see if it that would somehow fix it, but no luck.

  • To anyone who still has this issue, I managed to fix it by setting up Flow using the normal Opera browser instead of Opera GX, then just logging in with my account on Opera GX!

  • @ak98 Thank you so much. Didn't work at first so I reinstalled the app on my phone and it works now (Though it's a bit buggy because I have to restart the app for new messages to appear in myflow. Works fine from phone to pc.).

  • This is my issue too but I've been "researching" and saw that the opera and opera gx qr code is two different sized code:

    The opera gx one is much smaller!

  • I can't connect to flow from gx, help me guys

  • same problem here. Has anyone solve it?

  • Tried using the Opera GX Sidebar My Flow to set it up, but repeatedly failed saying I needed to login to my account (already logged-in on both devices).

    Fix: Opened a tab to opera.com/connect, scanned the QR on that page, done.
