Re: New Upwork Android App Available Now

A new version of Upwork's Android app is now available in the Google Play store under the name “Upwork for Freelancers”. Just like the iOS app, our new Android app allows freelancers to access nearly all of while on the go. Freelancers will be able to do things like: 

  • Review and accept jobs or proposals
  • Communicate through Upwork Messages
  • Share files
  • Search for jobs
  • View projects
  • Manage contracts
  • Get paid

The new Android app “Upwork for Freelancers” is for freelancers and agencies only. The current Upwork Android app called "Upwork," has not been updated but is still available to download. If you use a client account to hire on Upwork, then we ask that you keep the current app.

If you only use Upwork as a freelancer, you can download the new "Upwork for Freelancers" app and delete the old app.

I'm unable to find this on Play Store. Play store showing "Item not found". Can you tell me how can I fix this?

Hi Syed,


Can you please check your Android OS version? The new Android app requires  Android 6 or newer.

Hi Muhammad,


I am sorry for the late response. Could you please try downloading the new Android app here.

The app looks nice, though I have a request. Can you please keep our saved searches somewhere handy. While you have improved your recommended jobs engine, I still find better results for me via search.


PS. Unrelated to this particular post, can you add an autosaved feature while writing a proposal. It is annoying when, after 20 minutes of writing, I accidentally click on the side of the proposal window, and it all vanishes.

Nevermind, found it under the My feed dropdown. Intuitively, I would have it under search, but this works as well.
