Android client 3.9.2
Starting from today Android client 3.9.2 is available in the app store! Yesterday we released the 3.9.1 version of our Android app, a minor release bringing small fixes, lots of improvements in translations and other refinements.
Note that we released 3.9.2 today as a result of a bug that caused a login loop in cases when app protection was enabled. The bug is now fixed! If you haven’t enabled automatic updates in your mobile, please update your app to 3.9.2.
Improved image viewer
On certain devices, the app crashed when you opened a png image and then clicked on it to replace the transparent background with the chessboard-style pattern. The issue is now fixed by using png instead of a vector drawable for bitmap without causing the app to crash.
Get the app
Note: This release will be available on Fdroid after up to 24 hours.

Tips: did you see these?
Make your life easier with some Nextcloud Android app features you might haven’t noticed yet.
Markdown preview with syntax highlighting
Markdown files are an easy way of taking meeting notes with your colleagues, writing down some quick ideas or thoughts, drafting a new proposal during a team call etc. After structuring the text with basic formatting in a human readable way you usually have to get back to it, maybe on the go, or you share it with other people who access from their mobile phones.
Many syntax highlighting for markdown preview, in read mode only are now supported in your Nextcloud app for Android. Markdown files are human readable and well structured even when you access them on the go!
DAVx⁵ has released its 2.6 version which is compatible with Android 10 and Nextcloud Login flow is implemented. You can even setup DAVx⁵ from your Nextcloud app with 2FA. Note that this is supported by Nextcloud Android app 3.9.0 or newer.
Check the video here for a step by step demonstration.
Of course many fixes, refinements and features are being made regularly and older versions of Nextcloud are not supported. The Android app warns you of the risks of running an outdated version. Nextcloud 12 is the oldest release that will work with this version of our app. 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.
