Disclaimer: AdGuard for Android is not an open source project. We use Github as an open bug tracker for users to see what developers are working on.

Two months of development are rarely enough to come up with an update that big. Despite that, AdGuard 3.2 for Android is packed with major new features, not mentioning the long list of minor changes that goes on and on.

There’s something for both experienced users (userscripts support, DNS user filter) and for absolute beginners (feature discovery) to help them make their first steps. And everyone will equally appreciate the improved stability and speed that come with CoreLibs filtering engine update.

[Added] Feature discovery #2459

We try to position AdGuard for Android as an app you can technically turn on and forget about it, but that can offer so much more if you spend some time to explore it. To help new users not get lost in many many features we added over the years, we'll now highlight the most important UI elements and give short tooltips that explain what they are all about. This will only happen when you visit this or that screen for the first time, of course, otherwise, it would become old very soon.

[Added] Userscripts support #34

Userscripts (we also call them extensions) are basically mini-programs written in Javascript that extend the functionality of one or more websites. Usually, you'd need some special userscript manager to add them, and it's traditionally more of a desktop thing. But with AdGuard everything is possible! Now you can add any userscripts by URL or load them from a file, and AdGuard will serve as a userscript manager and take care of the rest. Go to Settings > Extensions to enable some of the preinstalled extensions or to add custom userscripts. By the way, you can tap on any userscript from among the added ones to see more details and to reinstall or delete it.

[Added] DNS User filter and custom hosts files support #2803, #1851

This is very similar to the regular User filter for custom filtering rules, but for DNS requests. You can find it at Settings > DNS Filtering > DNS Requests blocking. DNS User filter supports two types of syntax: a limited portion of AdGuard syntax and "hosts" syntax. More about it in our Knowledge Base.

Another DNS-related feature is hosts files support. AdGuard users now can add any hosts lists as custom DNS filters. Again, this option is on the Settings > DNS Filtering > DNS Requests blocking screen.

[Fixed] IPv6 filtering doesn't work in automatic proxy mode #2579

Not a new feature, but a very important fix. Many users with rooted devices use AdGuard in automatic proxy mode, and it turned out that IPv6 filtering wasn't working in this mode. In this version, the problem is fixed.

  • [Added] Firefox preview has been added to the list of browsers #2958
