Open tabs on different devices

After syncing devices with a Yandex account, you can view tabs open on another computer, tablet, or smartphone. This feature is useful in the following situations:

  • If you have two computers — a work computer and a home computer. You looked at a website on your computer at work and have not closed the tab. At home, just open it and continue working.
  • If you have a mobile device and a computer. You found an interesting website on your smartphone or tablet, and you want to view it on a larger screen.
To be able to do this, these requirements must be met:
  1. Yandex.Browser must be installed on all the devices (computer, smartphone, tablet).
  2. You must have syncing enabled on all your devices.
  3. For syncing, the same Yandex account must be used on all devices.
