Opening files

Tap a file and it will open in Yandex.Disk or the default application for that file type.

If there are multiple apps like that on your mobile device, you can choose the one you want from the list.

To choose an app manually, select the file and tap  → Open in....

In the app, you can view images and change them in the editor.

You can listen to music from Yandex.Disk directly in the app using the built-in audio player. To do this, tap a track and the audio player panel will appear at the bottom of the screen.

The playlist is created automatically from all the tracks in the folder.

The audio player is also available under Offline.

I edited a file but the changes didn't sync

If you opened a file from Yandex.Disk on your phone and edited it, but the changes didn't sync automatically, it's because synchronisation is not available in the Yandex.Disk mobile app. In this case, you can only download and upload files manually. But you can enable unlimited photo and video auto-uploads.

Video or image quality has decreased

Images are stored on Yandex.Disk in their original quality. They are not compressed during upload. However, Yandex.Disk creates low-resolution previews for the website to reduce traffic and make working with Disk faster. To view an image in its original quality, download it to your mobile device.

If the video quality in the app is low, it's likely that the video player is set to a low resolution. You can select a higher resolution. In the app, you can watch videos in the maximum quality 1080p. If the video resolution is higher, you can download it to your mobile device to watch it in the original quality.
