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.
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 The Android app warns you of the risks of running an outdated version.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.
We appreciate your feedback! If you’d like to share your comments with us, continue the discussion in our forums. What’s the best thing about the Android app so far?

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 […]
