Facebook Now Testing Android Photo Syncing
When you hear about auto uploading photos on Android you think about the Google+ feature or the Dropbox one, that allow such actions. Flickr would also welcome this addition, to be honest. Anyway, now it appears that Facebook intends to implement a similar feat for its Android app.
Facebook has been testing photo syncing on Android according to people close to the matter and FB has to be extra careful here, since their latest updates of the Android app were failures. Lately the company founded by Zuckerberg has been dogfooding the Android app and promised a native app for a future launch. The Photo Sync feature is being tested by some users with the newest version of the application and could get a wide release soon enough.
The feature will work in the same way as on the Google+ app, with every photo you take automatically uploaded and stored in a private album for easier sharing or management. Syncing will also get some extra options. On Google+ pics are uploaded based on your connection settings and are resized to 3 MB, while on Facebook syncing will take into account more data, like battery level before syncing. Also, photos that sync over mobile data will be cut to 100k to save data traffic.
In order to learn if you’re a lucky user with access to this new feature, just go to your Timeline on Facebook for Android and tap Photos, then if there’s a Sync button you’re it!
