Nextcloud 3.13.0 for Android

Did you miss it? We released Android client 3.13.0 with some awesome news last month!

With over 300 issues closed and pull requests merged, version 3.13 of the Android Nextcloud brings more than support for end-to-end encryption. This release also brings improvements to dark mode as well as a rewritten interface to fit the new Android design guidelines, adding a floating search bar on top with direct access to the users’ profile and the ability to switch between them. Below that are sort and list/icon view switchers, making the new interface fresh, clean and efficient.

Tips: did you know these?

Auto-upload for existing images

Probably one of the most requested features: Nextcloud Android has introduced the ability to upload images previously taken when you add an auto-upload folder! There is a box in the preferences that will ensure no picture gets missed.

‘Not enough space’ dialogue

When you are about to download a file or a folder locally to your Android device but there’s not enough space for it, a dialogue shows up, offering more options like:

  • Free up space – shows the Android internal storage manager so you can delete other unimportant files in order to download the ones you need
  • Choose what to sync – shows the content of the folder you are about to download so you can choose between files that might fit the available space

With this feature, in case you want to download a large file and there’s not enough space, you will be able to free up some space on your device. In case you want to download a large folder and there is not enough space on your device you can choose which files you want to download so that might fit, or free up some space.
