Google to bring App Data sync for Android devices

With applications able to sync data among different devices users will get the same files, features and functionality no matter which device they use.

Global search engine giant Google is ready to give applications access to sync application data among different devices. This way, devices will be synced in terms of the data that applications use. For instance, if you are playing a game on two different devices, they will synchronise the data in the background so that no matter which device you use the data will be available.

This becomes all the more important for applications that offer device specific features and functionality. Utilizing this new feature developers will be able to offer a more seamless experience to users across different devices, without the need to synchronize the application with the use of a third party device or service.

The feature is a part of the new Google Play Services 3.1 package, which is not yet available to the public, but is likely to be made available to users in the following days. But before anyone Android Police got the pre-release version and discovered this new feature of application sync while mining for details in the application code.

Although it's certain that the new application will make its way to users in due time, 'when' is something we really want to know.
