With Google I/O 2013 about to open, Android users poking around in their settings have noticed some new sync settings are available for their Google accounts. The additions appear to be part of an update to the Google Sync Services app that was pushed out to Android users over the last few days, taking the app up to version 3.1.36. The first new addition is a toggle to sync or not sync “App Data.” It is unclear whether that means Google is syncing data about the apps on a device or whether this is a new service that app developers can use to have in-app data sync’ed via Google’s services. The second new toggle is for “Sync People details” which is different from contacts. Again, it is not clear exactly what data may be getting sync’ed. It could be tied into Google+ or it may possibly be related to the new Google Play Games service expected to be announced at Google I/O 2013.
Be sure to check back here at the TalkAndroid site for more from our team on the ground at Google I/O 2013. Hopefully we will find out more about why Google pushed out these changes to their sync services and how they will benefit users.
