Android Forums app 1.6.2
We've just released the Android Forums app version 1.6.2 to the Beta channel. Some of the new features include:
- Added the ability to create device shortcuts to forums and threads on Android 8+. Find it in the overflow menu.
- Support for Android 8 adaptive icons and notification channels. You can now customize how notifications appear via the system's app settings screen.
- Support for showing inline images and tap to view external images. A new setting allows you to only download externally hosted images on wifi, in which case you'll need to tap to view the image, or to always download external images regardless of network.
- Support for embedded YouTube videos. Clicking on the video thumbnail will open the YouTube app.
- Tap a user's profile to display a mini profile dialog. You can then view their full profile or send them a private message.
- You can now also view your full profile and edit most of the settings in the app.
- The private messages screen is now embedded in the app.
- Removed the ability to down vote on thread replies. Web will do the same soon.
- Bug fixes and performance improvements.
