Automatic Photo Uploads From iOS and Android Devices By Facebook

All the Android and iOS users will be happy to know about the new feature added by Facebook where you can directly upload photos from your folder and sync it with your facebook album.This will save your extra effort and time of copying your photos to the desktop or laptop’s and then uploading the photos on Facebook. Photo Sync works on the iOS and Android app, and will automatically upload every photo you take to a private “Synced From Phone” album, from which you can choose which to share and which to delete. The feature is very similar to Google+’s instant photo uploads, and users will be limited to 2GB of cloud storage.

Battery life and mobile data usage are the two main concerns of the smartphone users but Facebook has thankfully decided to include an option to sync only over Wi-Fi. Even if you do enable syncing over mobile data, images will be uploaded but at a smaller size of about 100KB. Additionally, photo sync will turn off when battery levels are low. Lastly, unlike Google+’s instant uploads on Android, photos will only sync when you open the Facebook app.

Photo Sync is already available for iPhone and Android users (there’s no update, Facebook has simply activated a dormant feature), but you’ll need to go into the app settings to enable it.
