We’ve made available the 3.6.0 version of our Android client just now on the App store! This release introduces notification handling and Nextcloud 16 integration features as well as a series of fixes and minor improvements. Read on to learn more and see some screenshots!
Location picker lets you choose storage location
The app shows you the note you received with a share
Approve a login in notifications or the lock screen
This release brings some large and many smaller features.
When you dismiss a notification this gets communicated to the server so you don’t have to dismiss them twice
When a notification has actions (like accepting a share or approving a login) you can see and act directly in the notification drop-down or lock screen (of course the latter can be configured if you want to avoid this risk)
You now see the avatar of the person who shared files with you, like in the web interface (see screenshot).
You can now see notes added to a share by the sender
The file picker lets you choose the storage location
Minor changes include the removal of expert mode, a warning when the server is unavailable and when it is outdated (older than Nextcloud 14). Releases older than Nextcloud 12 are no longer supported.
As always, many other fixes and small improvements were made. We’d like to shout-out to our awesome community of contributors, thanking Andy Scherzinger for his work on the location picker, ezequarii for many under-the-hood refinements and ardevd for bug fixes, among many others! You make the Nextcloud Android app great.
So what are you waiting for?
You can grab the latest version from the app store. F-droid users, stay tuned, it is on its way!

It is to be expected they will not maintain 3 similar products, but customers will have to migrate to the US firms’ platform or look for another […]
As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
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 […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
Governments, agencies and public services have the immense responsibility to protect citizen’s data. With the tremendous amount of choices for online collaboration tools hosted by dozens of different vendors, it is hard to keep an overview of where that data is. At the same time, strict policies forbidding employees from using random third-party platforms limits […]
