Use ONLYOFFICE/Collabora/Text when no off-line editor is available

In case you have a downloaded file that you want to edit or just open and there’s no offline editor on your device, ONLYOFFICE, Collabora or Text will be used to open it. If for various reasons the file can’t be handled by these three you will get a “No app to handle the file” warning.

  • Nextcloud is self-hosted – you can install it on your own server and use it for private or business purposes. If you need the best business platform for secure filesharing, collaboration and communication check out here.
  • Nextcloud is server software that also has available mobile apps. This is our release announcement for Nextcloud 3.15.1 for Android. The Nextcloud Android app allows you to access all your files on your Nextcloud. There’s a Nextcloud mobile app for iOS as well. You can use any of them, and access your data anywhere, whenever, if you have a Nextcloud installation running on your server – which is very simple to set up!
