New location (Singapore), Blokada 5.18 in beta

Hi everyone, I hope you are well!

The updates

As per our release schedule, today we are releasing the following updates:

  • Blokada 5.18 for Android (beta) →

We also have some exciting news about a preview release of something we have been working on for quite some time: Blokada Cloud.

New location: Singapore

As we continue to expand our VPN network, we are now introducing yet another location: Singapore. We hope this is one step towards improving our availability and latency in Asia. As usual, don’t hesitate to let us know what you think and how is your experience.

Blokada Cloud

As you may know, a few weeks ago we introduced a beta of our new solution called Blokada Cloud. The reception was overwhelmingly positive, and this makes us believe that the direction chosen is indeed what our users need.

Of course there is still a lot to do, and we are going to focus some significant efforts on development of this new feature. Considering that after the recent iOS updates Blokada for iOS got broken, and our iOS users are experiencing problems with adblocking, we are going to focus on brining native Blokada Cloud support to our iOS app first. Once this is working well, we are aiming to do a similar thing for Android users as well.

As a reminder, you can check this intro guide for a quick how-to on Blokada Cloud beta.

Blokada 5.18 beta for Android

This is a maintenance release fixing a few issues we have found recently. Together with the major network detection changes from 5.17, we believe this release is one to be introduced to all our stable channels next week. To answer some questions we have been getting from you: yes, this also includes the Google Play.

As a reminder, you can perform a test of your adblocking configuration by visiting this link:

As usual we updated the blocklists, and translations. We also made some minor bugfixes. More in the changelog.

Keep the feedback coming, and enjoy using Blokada!
