Facebook Inc. (FB) is testing Google+ Features of ‘Photo Syncing’ for Android Phones in order to provide a new feature that automatically syncs the photos with users Android phone to their Facebook account. Photo Syncing is already available in Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s social network Google +.
This Syncing feature allows users to store photos privately, and giving that option to Android users, that whenever they want to share pictures on Facebook, they can do it conveniently.
Social giant is currently testing the feature, that is available on a Help page for testing purpose, and it will be made available for users who are using the newest Facebook for Android app.
This Facebook syncs the pictures feature allow users to take pictures “as soon as they want them,” but however, there is a constraint of battery level on user’s phone before app sync settings to start uploading it on FB.
For instance, users can set the syncs application to only sync photos when they are connected via Wi-Fi network, rather than by synching all their shots over cellular network. Their Photos which are synced via cellular network are synced at a smaller size around 100k. If user doesn’t want to sync photos at any time then he/she can also be able to turn off the feature within Facebook for Android.
Users can also check to see if they have the feature available by tapping ‘Photos’ on their Timeline within the Facebook for Android app or not and seeing if there is a ‘Photo Synching’ option available.
