Facebook continues its feature update and this week they have released the Photo Sync feature. As the name suggests, this new option lets you sync your entire photo albums from your Android device on Facebook servers. All the photos are placed in a private album named Synced from Phone.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

The containing of the album are totally private, but you can easier select what photos to share with your friends and what photos to completely delete from the album if they are too private.

When you think that all your photos will be stored on a server, you have to think about storage space. It seems that Facebook is able to offer you 2GB of storage space to store your photos. However, the photos will be resized to have 100KB each, especially to save bandwidth and space. A simple math calculus tells that you have storage space for around 20 000 photos. It should be enough right?

Another issue that can arise because of this feature is data consumption. Luckily, Facebook has added a Sync from WiFi only option that only allows syncing while connected to a WiFi network. All users are now able to use the new Photo Sync feature.

Why don’t you try out the new feature for yourself and share your experience with us?
