Short for "synchronize", this tag is for questions about synchronizing an Android device with "the Cloud" or simply with other devices. Please use the more specific tags if your issue is with e.g. 'active-sync' (MSExchange) or 'rsync' (see full tag wiki for details).

Short for "synchronize", this tag is for questions about synchronizing an Android device with "the Cloud" or simply with other devices, such as e.g.

  • your computer
  • directly synchronize with other android devices (without an intermediate server)
