Please welcome the first beta version of AdGuard v3.4 for Android! To start things off, we've enhanced the app in a few directions, including fixing some of the oldest known bugs and improving Android TV compatibility.

[Bug] AdGuard blocks Internet connection #2842

This bug had been puzzling us for a very long time. It appeared on various devices of AdGuard users and was seemingly random. However, the symptoms were the same: the smartphone lost any network completely while AdGuard was turned on. Needless to say, it had been our top priority to fix this issue, and finally, we've managed to beat it. Not going to lie, it's a big relief not only for the affected users but for us too!

[Enhancement] Integration with DnsLibs #3229

DnsLibs is a DNS proxy library that's required to provide DNS filtering. It supports all existing DNS protocols including DNS-over-TLS, DNS-over-HTTPS, and DNSCrypt. We developed it to replace the old DNSproxy, which had one serious flow: it caused high battery resource consumption. DnsLibs is much better optimized and will ensure a longer lifespan for your phone's battery if you're using DNS filtering a lot.

[Enhancement] Improved functionality on Android TV #3238

AdGuard for Android is first and foremost an app for mobile phones and tablets, but it can be installed on other Android devices, such as smart TVs. We have made several improvements for this specific case, for example:
  • AdGuard now better works with lists
  • Better navigation between AG menus on smart TVs
  • Option to click on snackbars
  • Option to exit the promo screen
  • "Close" option for all dialogues
Now AdGuard for Android will be much easier in use if you decide to install it on your smart TV. If you still encounter any bugs or inconsistent behavior, please report it here.

[Bug] Firewall's restriction are ignored when WiFi gets enabled #3313

And another unpleasant bug that deserves a special mention. In v3.3, if you had specifically prohibited some apps from accessing the Internet via mobile data, the restrictions worked right up until you enabled WiFi, which was not the intended behaviour.

Probably worth mentioning that even though there's been improvements to how AG for Android functions on Android TV, it's not possible to install the HTTPS certificate on Android TV boxes including the Nvidia Shield TV and the Xiaomi Mi Box. So this means using AG for Android on them results in limited ad blocking capabilities limited to HTTP only.

It *is* possible to install the HTTPS certificate on rooted Nvidia Shield TVs though.

It should be noted that HTTPS Certificates should be able to install on Fire TV Cubes, but not Firesticks for those interested in running AdGuard.
