Settings Sync between VS Code and Codespaces

Is there anyway or any reason not to sync settings across vscode and codespaces? I logged into both via GitHub and it seems settings are shared between codespaces instances but not between vscode and codespaces or vice-versa.

Thank you!

Yes - Codespaces currently uses the VS Code Insiders channel. As a result, its settings sync with local VS Code Insiders rather than VS Code stable. Eventually we will move to VS Code stable and this behavior will go away.

If you don’t already have insiders installed, you can get it here:

It can live side-by-side with stable.
