This release brings nice UI improvements for media view.
There is no longer a photo viewer, instead, you will be navigating through photos and videos using the new media viewer. Now, while swiping between photos and videos, you will be able to distinguish these media files from one another through the “play” button enabled for videos.
Of course many fixes, refinements and features are being made regularly and older versions of Nextcloud are not supported. If you run an outdated, unsupported Nextcloud, the Android app will warn you of the risks. Nextcloud 13 is the oldest release that will work with this version of our app and you will get a warning if you are still running Nextcloud 16 or older.
Note that Nextcloud offers long term support for companies, as sometimes they have to use older versions. Contact our sales team for more information on this.
Note that this version of the Nextcloud Android client (version 3.15) is supported on Android 5.0 and newer. We strongly recommend private users to upgrade their Nextcloud servers.
