@jz Share your concerns + also that they have effectively helped whitewash Google/Facebook by working with them to add encryption that's not on by default.
At the same time, only one of two solutions right now that are fully open source + cross platform (the other being Wire). (Also, an apk is available for download but is discouraged/not easy to find - they do push people to Google.)
We definitely need decentralised alternatives that publicly oppose surveillance capitalism.
What a surprise... :/
Conversation is working well. Omemo gives hope that some flaws of XMPP/OTR could be compensated (offline messages, decent crypto...)
- fully open source, server as well as client
- self-hostable and only requires PHP
- app in F-Droid, apk available too
- uses WebRTC standard
- federation is planned, but using links to have calls with people not on Nextcloud is already possible
