Chrome's "Send to device", What It Doesn't Do

I'll tell you what it doesn't do, it doesn't do anything.

It's been a released 'feature' since Chrome 77 (September 2019), and whilst the options are there and I can indeed choose to 'send to' my phone NOTHING has ever happened.

I've never received a message (if that's what's meant to happen), my device's Chrome doesn't display a page, nothing at all happens.

Oh, sure the ChromeOS status does show something is 'happening' and it will probably show it forever, but nothing ever actually transpires.

As for sharing a page from Android Chrome the official instructions are poop as I don't even have a "Send to your devices". This is a Google Pixel 4 with the latest Android updates. Nothing, no option anywhere.

So, what the story Google?
