Improvements to the Jellyfin mobile experience are here. A new update for the Jellyfin Android app is ready! Read along to learn everything new in this update!

- Niels & Max

What's new

The focus of this update is maintenance. We've fixed various bugs and made sure the app works on newer Android versions. Noticeable is the improved connection screen that now remembers your previously connected servers, making it a lot easier to switch between them.
