Sync Settings The ability to sync your settings to Creative Cloud, so you can work the way you like on any of your computers—Mac or PC. Synchronize your workspace settings—including things like preferences, presets, brushes, and libraries—so they go where you go.

Plans & Pricing here: https://creative.adobe.com/plans “Bridge” comes free with at least Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign when purchased as Single apps. It is still a separate download and install, however.
Some Missing Features—according to David Blatner “Adobe hasn’t shipped everything they’ve promised yet. For example, the Typekit feature that lets you download fonts to your desktop and use them in any program—that’s coming “soon.” Adobe is sure to roll out all kinds of features over the next few months—in fact, that is part of the whole reason they’re going to a “cloud” distribution model: They don’t have to hold up the release of these programs until that stuff is ready!”
