ownCloud Android 2.5.1 beta app released

This new Android beta version includes a new camera uploads feature, which is going to replace the instant uploads. You just have to select a camera folder, and the pictures and videos from the camera folder are automatically uploaded in a period of 15 minutes at most, focusing on reliability instead of immediacy and avoiding battery draining caused by excessive checking of the folder.

We also adjusted the app to work fine with Android O, so you can use some of the features of the new Android version with the ownCloud app, for example the notification categories, enabling you to configure separately the notifications for ownCloud uploads and downloads among others.

This new version is already available to download on PlayStore and on F-Droid!
