How to become a beta tester:

Without google play you can download the apk here:
https://github.com/nextcloud/talk-android/releases/download/v12.1.0rc1/v12.1.0RC1.apk

Every feedback is appreciated. Please report issues at Issues · nextcloud/talk-android · GitHub.

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-talk/ - cc @rakekniven for possible reminder to translators <3

Yes. I agree that the work is great, but I found something not working with Talk Android client 12.1.0 RC1 an Server 12.0.0-Alpha3.
On my samsung tablet s7 I do not get any notification and no sound if the screen is closed. If I open the screen, I can see the message.
Hopefully this will be fixed soon with the beta?
Thank you

@DDArnNext see original post, please report any issues to Issues · nextcloud/talk-android · GitHub else it is rather unlikely they will be fixed except when the developers find this issue themselves :wink:

Awesone release! Great new features added.

I want test it but I’ve NextcloudPi server with 20.0.4 stable version. If change to beta, the updater found 20.0.10 version.

It is possible to install v22 on nextcloudpi?

Hi @crossmax,
Don’t know, best you check the Nextcloud Pi project itself and their latest supported version. I am an Android Dev, so not my area of expertise :wink:
