Does Dropbox camera upload honour system setting "synchronise"?

New member | Level 2

On android, one can swipe down a quick settings-meny. One of these are "synchronise".

 

Does this setting affect Dropbox camera upload?

 

More info: I travel between countries, and some countries have expensive data rates. I use a personal wifi device, so I have a routine where I always go into different apps and deactivate auto-sync. Unfortunately, sometimes I miss one of these from going into the hotel (want sync? yes) and then leaving again.

 

If Dropbox honours the global sync setting, then I have one less app to worry about slightly smiling face

I'm pretty sure that only disables synchronization to Google's services. I've never known it to affect other apps. As far as I know, it's not a setting that other apps can take advantage of.
