Starting from today, the Nextcloud Android client 3.10.1 is available in the app store! This is a minor release which brings many small bug fixes and lots of improvements & refinements.
Among other fixes, now the sharing details of pre-shared files or folders appear without causing the app to crash when using a self signed certificate. We would recommend Let’s encrypt for users as a more convenient way to secure your server.

Note: This release will be available on Fdroid after up to 24 hours.
In case you missed it, we released Android client 3.10.0 with some awesome new features last month. Read about the new collaborative tools, dark mode, rich workspaces and many more!
Tips: did you see these?
Make your life easier with some Nextcloud Android app features you might haven’t noticed yet.
Remote wipe integration
Remote wipe allows users and administrators to forcibly clean files from remote devices, for example in case they are stolen. This feature is available on the Nextcloud Android client as well! Did you know about this?
While many companies have Mobile Device Management, thanks to built-in support, remote wipe will work on systems not under management of the company. This is useful for home users but also large universities and of course in a scenario where guest accounts were handed to a third party. If you permit downloading of documents by the third party, you can wipe the files from their devices when the the collaboration has ended.
These things usually catch you unprepared, as no one really expect it at any time. Now remote wipe is available on your mobile’s settings, so you don’t need to be in the office to prevent data “disasters”!
Clickable links on markdown previews
Many collaboration improvements have been made to the latest releases! One of them is this, making it possible to click links even on a downloaded markdown file when you access it locally on your mobile, enabling full access to the content of your files!
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 If you run an outdated, unsupported Nextcloud, the Android app will warn you of the risks.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 15 or older. We strongly recommend private users to upgrade their Nextcloud servers.
As companies sometimes have to use older versions, Nextcloud offers long term support. Contact our sales team for more information on this.

Today, US-based file sync & share vendor Kiteworks announced their acquisition of ownCloud and Dracoon. Kiteworks points out that their customers now have access to their file-sharing application. 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 […]
