#1

Hi everybody,

we are happy to announce the first release candidate for the upcoming Android release. It has already been uploaded to the Play store and should show up in the next couple of hours. As for the f-droid RC release, we published the PR but the publishing by f-droid might take some time.

Features you will get with this release are:

  • Chunked upload: 1mb on cellular, 10mb on wlan
  • switch to Material design
  • Option to not show notifications for new media folders
  • Add support for QR codes & deep links
  • Direct camera upload
  • Fully working Document provider
  • Detail view: show complete date on click
  • Show correct share error message
  • Use default/device font
  • Sync all downloaded
  • Add battery optimization warning

For full list please see https://github.com/nextcloud/android/milestone/28

Grab the app via google play store as a beta tester: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.nextcloud.client or later on Fdroid. !:robot:

Happy testing and if you find any issue please report back to us on https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues to resolve these. :slight_smile:

We are also still lacking some translations, so if you have some time to spare, that would really help us bringing the client to the users in as many languages as possible :slight_smile: https://www.transifex.com/nextcloud/nextcloud/android/

Thanks!!!

:wink:
And over the network (3G/4G)?


#3

Can you tell me the difference about wifi and wlan :face_with_monocle:


#4

It’s a typo.

Meant is:
1 MB on mobile connection (3G/ 4G/ 5G :wink: ) and 10 MB on wifi.


In german wifi is called WLAN (wireless local area network); so there is no difference.


#5

Sure.

WLAN means Wireless Local Area Network, so just a few devices connected together without cable with some protocol in general.

Wifi is a trademark by the WiFi Allience and is based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, therefore one of said protocols used for communication in most WLANs.

But yes, it most probably was a typo ; )


#6

my mistake, it is 1mb on cellular :slight_smile:


#7

Does it (really) fix the automatic photo upload?


#8

Still handles burst mode like I describe in Android Photo Burst Mode and AutoUpload


#9

No, but it doesn’t say that anywhere in the change list


#10

What does it mean then?


#11

Hey - i only saw your title, and completely without context, decided to reply, because i have suffered loooong time about photo autoupload across various version of nextcloud android client. Only to (re-)discover, that on several different phones (wife’s ++ :wink: always the same problem. The battery saver function on the phone kills nextcloud running in background. Make sure this option is disabled, and your autoupload will be fine. To make it difficult, all the phone brands call it something different, but basicly it is the same thing. Nextcloud needs authentication to run in backgroud.
HTH

Hello i clicked on the transiflex link, but cannot get to the android part. I keep up ending up in the server translation area?


#13

Thank you for your reply. But I tried that too (very often, each time in fact I tested the app). To make it more strange the Owncloud app 2.7.0 works just fine with Nextcloud 15.0.2 including automated photo upload.


#14

found it …

This: https://github.com/nextcloud/android/pull/3467


#16

I have the same problem with the auto upload like peterman52. I am quite sure, that I have configured the battery saver for nextcloud on my Samsung Galaxy A3 with Android 8.0.0 correct. The thing is, that after some time (don’t know how long), the auto upload just stops working and I have to open the nextcloud app again. The app then automatically continues uploading the recently taken photos.


#17

Mine’s not uploading at all anymore! :-(.

I reported it here: https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues/3569
