Does the Synced theme even work anymore?

I am having trouble changing the synced theme in windows 10. I have a surface pro and a desktop. I was changing the background to my laptop and it showed up as a custom theme in the personalization theme settings. I tried everything but the synced theme just stays with the same image and doesn't change to the wallpaper I want it to. Even if I change the theme color, it creates a custom theme. So does the sync theme not sync the wallpaper between computers anymore? I have the most up to date version of windows 10 right now.

The only way i was able to change the synced theme was to change the transcodedwallpaper.jpg in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\RoamedThemeFiles\DesktopBackground

but it only changed for my surface pro and not my desktop.

I also checked:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

and I can see that the cache folder updates instantly with what wallpaper I change to.

Is there any way of fixing the synced theme or did the windows updates brake the roamed theme?
