Monzo for Android - Beta Channel Changelog 🕵


and for those unable to use a fingerprint scanner, either due to medical conditions or having a phone without a scanner.

Just gotta wait and see :slight_smile:

Very sure that the monzo team are aware of this concern :wink:

I’d be interested to hear from any of those users if they’re in the community - what’re your thoughts on this?

To add some more context -

Just noticed a small but welcomed change :blush:

Android Pay branding switched to Google Pay on the top-up screen :sunglasses:

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #294

Ooo the fun unrecorded changes keep coming! :tada:

Check out your payments screen :wink::grin:

Well… Go on then! :joy:

Ok I’ll spill the beans :yum:

Add contact FAB is now a button at the top of the screen :slight_smile: looks very clean IMO, offers less ‘interference’ with the content on screen :sunglasses:


Is there a way to hide the golden ticket banner?

(Alex Sherwood) #297

Not at the moment, no.


I’ve just checked, you can logout top right, then login again. It might seem long winded but it still took me less than 30 seconds to get back into the app.



Can anyone from Monzo confirm whether, if I choose to upload a photo, it’s stored locally on my device or uploaded to Monzo systems?


It’s uploaded.

I don’t think account statements are at the right place. Still not easy to find buried deep in my opinion. Statements could be on account screen with PIN and Add money.

Fingerprint security is just not what it should be. View PIN and payments still need other inputs.

Hope they’ll work to improve these things.

The problem is the settings is basically hidden, so when I saw the thing about statements I floundered around looking for them before remembering to click on the little cog in accounts. The little cloud is way more obvious & will get used more I think.

Someone elsewhere suggested settings go in the overflow menu, which is actually a good idea… it’s somewhere where people are conditioned to look for things like that.

Does the add contact button go to Android’s contact app, like on iOS? :thinking:


Yes it does go to default contacts app.

(Stephen Spencer) #306

New v1.23.1 … logo still jumps on startup fingerprint screen, on cursory glance can’t see any changes elsewhere … :man_shrugging:

(keithy) #307

I do wish they’d put in release notes.

Quite how we’re supposed to help beta test when we don’t know what has changed is beyond me!
