NextDNS DoH on Android 13

Android 13 natively supports DoH protocol. Google DNS and Cloudflare DNS successfully connect with DoH. But NextDNS DoH is'nt using because NextDNS's DoH address has a slash mark "/".

Will there be a fix for this?

      Martheen this is sad news. Why are they so restrictive?

      LazJedi LazJedi if you’re running Brave you could run doh3 specifically within the browser. I think most of the browsers themselves support it on Android anyways. It’s not system wide sure but it’s closer than nothing if you at least want the benefit of http/3 somewhere.

    Will Android 14 fix this and allow using any DoH provider?

      NDH Technically it's not part of the core OS, but an APEX module distributed through Google Play system update, so *if* Google ever decides to fix it, it would be available on Android 11 and above.

      I don't see why Google would bother though, currently with broken Cloudflare support it means Google gets as much data as possible without repercussion, it's not like people would be "oh noes, no native DoH3, welp guess I'm moving to iOS"

    Can NextDNS get Google to also add the NextDNS servers to the list, next to Google and Cloudflare? What does it take?

      NDH Google is an advertising company, why would they make it seamless to block ads?

      Martheen Microsoft is also an advertising company, but in Windows 11 it supports the DoH protocol of all DNS servers as native. We can also block ads from Android 10 -13 with DoT protocol. I don't think this is a valid excuse.

      LazJedi The built-in DoH servers in Windows 10 & 11 are Cloudflare, Quad9, and Google, no adblocking DNS included. I was replying to Google adding NextDNS to the server list, which is not going to happen.

      It would be exceedingly easy to just put a straightforward DoH textbox instead of weird hardcoding with DoT domain to then pick from the associated DoH3 address, but that's what Google does. It's not about the valid excuse, it's the fact their well-paid Android system devs spent that much time to do a half-baked error-prone implementation just to say "oh yes, Android totally supports DoH3, it's a modern OS". Were they not worried about antitrust suits, they would not even bother to add Cloudflare as an option.
