Microsoft:
If you have your activity history synced across your gadgets through your Microsoft account (MSA), you will no longer have the alternative to submit new activity in Timeline. To see web history, Edge and other browsers have the alternative to look back at recent web activities.
Microsoft has actually because upgraded the post to clarify that Timeline and the associated activity history will still be a part of Windows 10, but if youre utilizing a Microsoft account it will just be readily available in your area on that maker. Its not entirely clear what is behind the change, but as Thurrott mentions, it likewise lost Android syncing late in 2015 when Microsoft killed its launcher on the platform, so the capacity for doom remains high.
If youre not in the Insider beta program, a Microsoft assistance page points out that cross-device syncing will disappear for you in June, so anyone who utilizes it has a few months to prepare. Timeline was the “star” of Microsofts fall 2018 update for Windows 10 (after a hold-up pulled it out of the earlier Creators Update) and while it will still keep in mind whatever you did, it just wont conserve that info to the cloud any longer.
