I noticed that recently some new Google account sync options have appeared in Android. Take a look at the attached screenshot.
I now see the following listed as sync options:
- Cloud Print
- Game Data
- Game Data
- Google Play services
- Location Reporting and Location History
- Push subscriptions
- YouTube

These all have parenthesis in front of them unlike the regular sync options. I know most of these services were already active before they showed up here. But now I'm just curious why they are here and if this has happened to anyone else. Is there anything else I need to know about this? And also what is "Push subscriptions"?

Same here, don't know what's these doing, I just simply disable all of them, as I don't think I had any thing need to sync with these * options.

What is really annoying is that "push subscriptions" cannot be turned off manually. It starts up now and then.

I agree it's damn irritating. For me it seems to start up again every time I reboot and since I flash CM nightlies I reboot my phone almost everyday.

You mean they are restored only after reboot. That's far better than me. Cus no reboot is needed

push subscriptions / gmail sync
i have turned off sync push subscriptions but found that gmail then stopped with pushing emails (only manual refresh worked - autocync on, mobile data on, no restrictions). setting back on sync of push subscriptions recovers gmail push sync and now all emails are syncing immediately...

hqs anyone figured out what "sync push subscriptions" is? I turn mine off, then they automatically turn back on, and I dont even reboot?

Same problem here... some sync options automatically turn on, if any sync option is enabled. Any solution to this?
