According to the latest announcement from Windows Insider, the Windows 10 timeline will lose its sync function between different devices in June. The timeline will still show all recent activities on your PC, but you cannot sync those activities between multiple PCs.

But the timeline has never received much recognition. Syncing activities between PCs was easy, but connecting your phone or tablet to Windows 10 required the now-defunct Cortana voice assistant, which most people didn’t want to use. And now that the Office 365 and Edge browser can automatically sync documents and web activities over the cloud, it doesn’t make much sense to use Timeline.
If you’ve synced your activity history across all of your devices through your Microsoft account (MSA), you no longer have the option to upload new activity in the timeline. AAD connected accounts are not affected. To view web history, Edge and other browsers have the option to review recent web activity. You can also view recently used files with OneDrive and Office. Note: The timeline and all your local activity history will still remain on Windows 10.
It’s hard to imagine a future for the timeline as Microsoft is removing its greatest feature. Still, Microsoft insists Timeline is not dead. The timeline icon will still take up space on your taskbar (unless it’s turned off), and when you open the timeline, you’ll still see a mess of recent activity.
