Chrome for Android finally catching up with iOS sibling, getting password sync

Google Chrome for Android is getting an update soon that will finally give it password sync.
January 26, 2013
Very nearly all versions of Chrome currently support password sync. The ability to save your passwords and have them transferred to a new machine when you sign in there can be very useful. Going from a laptop to a desktop? Password sync will help making signing in easy. Inexplicably, this feature isn’t available on Google Chrome for Android.

Not having this feature on mobile wouldn’t be so bad if the iOS version didn’t already have it. So there is likely some resentment that they got theirs first. Considering the desktop version works too, that leaves Android in the dark as the only one that doesn’t have it.

However, according to Phandroid’s Quentyn Kennemer, Google states that it’s because it was easier to get it working for iOS than it was for Android. This is because of how Android handles user accounts. So never fear, Android fans, Google is working on it.

So when will this feature be added to Chrome for Android?

Unfortunately, here is no release date for the password sync update. It is known that Google is working on this issue and that it’s coming soon, but that’s all the info we’ve got. So if you’ve been waiting for password sync on Google Chrome, you only have to wait a little longer. Is anyone excited for the password sync update?
