Facebook testing new photo syncing feature for Android, rolling out to some users

Leave a comment

Some Android users are reporting that Facebook is testing a new feature that allows photos from their device to be automatically uploaded to a private album in their Facebook account. It appears the feature has been starting to roll out over the past couple of weeks, but more users reported noticing the feature, which is similar to the instant photo upload feature on Google+, yesterday and today. The Verge got confirmation from Facebook that it is indeed testing the new feature with a “really small” group of users. You’ll know if you have access to the feature if a “Sync” button is available from the Photos section in the Facebook for Android app. Facebook has also already posted a help center document with information about photo syncing.

From the app:

  • Go to your timeline
  • Tap Photos
  • Tap Sync at the bottom of your photos section. Follow the step-by-step instructions.

From your computer:

  • Go to your timeline
  • Click Photos
  • Click Synced From Phone at the top of your photos section. Follow the step-by-step instructions.
