4.6 RC 1 Pre-release
Pre-release

Just one final tweak before the release. In this version we’ve successfully fixed one major issue. Some users were experiencing a problem when switching between mobile and Wi-Fi connections. The AdGuard protection would stop, so you’d have to start it again manually. We’ve also fixed some other bugs to make the application even more stable. Keep an eye out for more updates — the official release is just around the corner!

4.6 Beta 1 Pre-release
Pre-release

As Vince Lombardi says, “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” We do as he says, and try our best to make every update better. Today we are happy to release the new beta version of AdGuard for Android. Faster, stronger, and more efficient. Let’s take a look at the major changes.

With the updated filtering engine CoreLibs, we have been able to implement many new features that will improve your filtering experience. First of all, we increased HTTPS filtering speed. Second, we added support for urltransform and xmlprune modifiers. Now even more distracting elements on a page will be blocked.

Our developers didn't rest on their laurels, so they also updated DnsLibs, UserscriptsWrapper and fixed a lot of bugs to make the application more stable.

This update brings our YouTube player’s usability to a whole new level: we added background playback, recommended videos, quality settings, and much more. Not so unskippable now, are you, ads? On top of that, this version includes some nice fixes for overall app performance, including the Android TV version.

A ton of improvements for AdGuard’s YouTube player

Just look at what’s available now:

  • Change video quality, playback speed, and subtitle settings using the gear ⚙ button

AG player video settings

  • Picture-in-picture mode is now supported, which means you can shrink the video to a small window and keep playing it in the background while using other apps. Great for such things as listening to music or podcasts

  • View recommendations at the end of the video, while paused, or by tapping the lower right corner of the player (availability depends on the video)

AG player recommended videos

  • Double-tap the right or left side of the screen to skip 10 seconds forward or back correspondingly

Quick reminder: to launch the AdGuard player, choose any video in the YouTube app, tap Share and select AdGuard Player (it’s likely that you will need to scroll right and tap More first).

Note: AdGuard player is based on the internal web browser that opens YouTube and has ad-blocking functionality built in. Therefore, the functioning and availability of its features depends on the web version of YouTube.

Changelog

Improvements

  • Focus now stays in the same place after opening the left-side menu of AdGuard for Android TV and closing it back #5271

Fixes

  • DNS protection settings fail to reset to default #5322
  • "Show DevTools on the main screen" toggle starts blinking after interacting with other toggles on the same screen #5332
  • Language-specific filter “Other, Other” #5232

4.4

Improved Firewall functionality and on-the-fly DoH filtering are the highlights of AdGuard v4.4 for Android. After extensive testing, we are ready to introduce the new version to you.

Firewall on fire

We like to think that we make the Internet cleaner and more enjoyable for users. But we are not ashamed to admit that sometimes we can send annoying notifications ourselves. Users have reported that they find using Firewall inconvenient: there are just too many notifications. As a result, people are turning them off for good in the system preferences.

In response, we have improved Firewall functionality. Now you can customize and turn off firewall notifications for all applications or specific ones.
Don’t want to get notifications about Chrome connections? Open the notification shade, tap a notification about Chrome, and then tap Mute. All Firewall notifications for this app will be disabled.

Alternatively, you can go to ProtectionFirewallNotificationsand toggle off notifications for individual apps.

DoH requests be flying

With the updated filtering engine, CoreLibs, we can implement on-the-fly DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) connection filtering. Our desktop apps have already gone this route and it seems to work fine. Why is this feature even necessary?

Before, if a user enabled DoH in their browser but not in AdGuard, we had to filter requests directly in the browser and send them to the unencrypted system DNS, which decreased security. Now, with on-the-fly DoH connection filtering, we can filter DNS requests in the browser without sending them to an unencrypted server.

You can find the new feature in SettingsGeneralAdvancedLow-level settingsFilter secure DNS.

We also fixed some minor bugs and updated UserscriptsWrapper and DnsLibs.

AdGuard v4.3 for Android brings you something not only special, but unprecedented. It’s the same AdGuard you know and love, but now with a TV-sized twist – and we mean that quite literally: we’re glad to introduce the support for Android TV! Important updates and a new Developer tools section are also here to enhance your user experience with our app.

Android TV support

AdGuard for Android TV

To provide full support for Android TV, we’ve developed a version of AdGuard for Android with the most essential features to enhance your browsing experience and content filtering on your TV. The new design, fully adapted for Android TV, includes:

  • Adapted onboarding
  • Home screen with statistics
  • Adapted Protection screen
  • Adapted settings
  • App management
  • DNS protection

DNS protection is a key feature on AdGuard for Android TV. Securing DNS traffic through encryption adds an extra layer of security and privacy to your browsing experience. With this update, you can now benefit from this safety also on the big screen. DNS-over-HTTPS is selected by default, but you can add your own server if a different protocol is needed.

Hold on to your remote, what you are about to experience is a brand new app! You can find the detailed instructions on how to install AdGuard for Android TV in our blog post.

Note: You’ll need a license to use AdGuard for Android TV. But you can also try it for free — we offer a 7-day trial period.

Developer tools

We invite our advanced users and filter developers who interact very actively with the app to explore our new Developer tools, a specialized section designed for quick navigation and switching between features. There you can quickly enable or disable custom filters, access logs, enable recording of different logs, and more. This feature can be enabled in Low-level settings.

CoreLibs and DnsLibs updates

The recent CoreLibs v1.13 update boosts your browsing experience with improved HTML filtering, while the update of DnsLibs to v2.4 makes your connection more secure with support for HTTP basic authentication.

More transparency in HTTPS filtering

To enhance the transparency of HTTPS filtering, AdGuard now offers the option to inspect the original certificate via Recent Activity. There you can view details of any web request, examine the encryption used by AdGuard, and inspect the original certificate.

This feature stems from a major concern with HTTPS filtering. AdGuard validates the certificate (and does it well!), but there may be situations where you’d like to inspect the original certificate yourself. You can read more about this issue in our Knowledge base.
