Hi, welcome to the forum!
Open tabs syncing is currently in a Controlled feature roll-out state, meaning that only a select group of Edge insider users have access to it for the time being, soon it will be generally available to all Canary users, then Dev and finally Beta users.
after that on the road map there is History and Extension syncing.
The full sync options will be added before the final and stable version of the new Edge browser will be released.

A supplementary answer to your question, you can use the Share function in the Edge insider browser And the Your Phone app on your mobile phone to send tabs and links to your devices.
This way is different from browser syncing and can be used right now
These instructions are from Edge insider Version 79.0.301.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
Let me know how it goes,
here is the official help regarding the Your Phone app

@Michael_Buchner I would really like to see this functionality too. I use Firefox explicitly for this reason. It would be great if I could do this through Edge. The function I most want is the ability to send a tab from Edge on Android to Edge on the desktop (or any other Android/Windows device where I have Edge installed).

@Shane_Hutchison 'Using the Microsoft "My Phone" app along with Microsoft Launcher and Cortana, I have had access to my Edge tabs from my phone to my laptop.' This is exactly what worries me about the automatic migration from Classic Edge to Chromium Edge - is Microsoft doing enough to publicise how simple sharing, sending tabs, and other features are on Windows 10 when linked with Android? the World at large seems to think that Chrome or Firefox are the only browsers that sync properly, yet if you set things up properly, using the relevant Microsoft Apps across your Windows, Mac, and Android devices its pretty seamless really... as has been the case with Classic Edge for a good while now.

Same for me - having tab sync across devices would be the killer feature for me. To specify, it would need to be similar to Firefox in that there is an up-to-date list of tabs open on each device which I could pull from (not actively push to) any other device and choose to open one or more specific tabs. As opposed to Chrome, which is history based and thus utterly useless for my intended use case (continue browsing where I left off on any device, but not on tabs closed some time in the past). https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/top-feedback-summary-for-july-15/m-p/1524346 now mentions "sync of browsing history".
So is this what I described above (currently open tabs, not history) worked upon at all? If yes, I will continue to watch this space...

@HotCakeX Open tab sync is now available in Edge Stable but if you don't want to sync all open tabs but only want to send a tab from Win 10 device 1 to Win 10 device 2, it still won't work. You're just able to send an open tab/page to my smartphone.
