The Nextcloud Android app v3 delivers Android 8 Oreo support, End-to-end Encryption, much better handling of local and remote files, many fixes for the auto-upload and much more in over 180 pull requests reviewed and merged over the last months. It is now available on the app store and you can wait for the automatic update or get it manually now!
Another noticeable change will be the detection of ‘walled gardens’, like a hotel or airport wifi login wall: no need to try to sync there until you logged in! The Nextcloud app now also supports IPv6 and there have been many fixes and improvements to the auto-upload feature for images and videos.
There has also been a lot of UI work. One example is to make it possible to directly execute actions on a single file, rather than having to select it first and go through the menu. As you see in the screenshot, each file now has a three-dot menu from where you can directly share, move, download, favorite and more.
You can also now set a sort order per folder, so you can have each folder the way you want. We also made it more clear what the difference is between sharing via Nextcloud and other apps, for example directly sharing a picture to Signal or creating a shared link.
And, to make using the app a bit faster, viewing images now doesn’t fully download the large picture but just gets you enough of a preview to fit your screen!
Last but not least, new is right-to-left language support, improved push notifications, updating avatars and of course loads of smaller improvements and bug fixes.

Video calls and online chats are second nature for us at this point. Taking your work call virtually or communicating with your manager online can all be done from home and this style of working is generally accepted.

Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
Data Loss Prevention, or DLP, is an essential security tool for any business or organization. Since you never know when you may be at risk of a data breach, it’s important to adopt some form of DLP. A typical example are anti-virus scanners. Thanks to the new ICAP support, Nextcloud can now be made to […]
