Welcome /e/OS 1.8 !

/e/OS 1.8 is out! We are happy to introduce the new version of /e/OS and all improvements it embeds. Starting with the introduction of picoTTS that replaced eSpeak for text-to-speech option, we have some other major improvements, such as:

App Lounge:

One of of the greatest improvements applied to App Lounge is a new “no-Google mode” at startup. This mode gives you the choice to display only Fdroid and PWA sources.

Advanced Privacy:

You can now use Advanced Privacy widget with more comfort: enjoy individual buttons to activate trackers control, Fake your location and Hide your IP.

Browser app: We have added Mojeek as a search option!

With the coming of this new version, our team is particularly pleased to announce the addition of the private Mojeek to the list of search options in /e/OS. Mojeek is an alternative search engine from the UK.

The crucial point that differentiates Mojeek from other privacy-oriented search engines is the fact that Mojeek provides the search result from their own index of web pages created by Web crawler.

« Mojeek believes that a true alternative has to be independent in order to avoid the biases and influence of Big Tech »

Having Mojeek in our Browser app is giving more options for you to surf the internet without worrying about your data.

Mojeek is available in English, French and German.

In order to change your default search option

  1. Go to the Browser app
  2. Click on 3 dots button (top right corner)
  3. Click on “Settings”
  4. Search engine

To benefit from all new features and improvements, update your phone in ‘System updates’ in your phone settings menu to /e/OS 1.8.

As always, make sure you have the latest update running on your phone!
