Google+ on Android does offer automatic uploading of photos captured with your smartphone, but it is not exactly one of the most commonly used features (strangely enough, don’t you think so?). Word on the street has it that social network giant Facebook is testing this particular feature for their Facebook for Android app.

Facebook did promise to churn out a native app for the Android mobile operating system which is a good thing considering the continued, sustained growth of Android in the smartphone and tablet worlds, and the current Facebook app simply fails to measure up to the Facebook app on other mobile platforms. The Photo Sync feature is being tested by select users, who will of course, have the newest version of the app, and upon successful testing, we should be able to see a wide release soon.

Facebook syncing is smart enough to consider just how much battery life your smartphone has left before performing the synchronization process, and photos which sync over mobile data are optimized to approximately 100KB so that you won’t get a shocker at the end of the month.
