Waiting for Riot (mobile) messenger version 1.0

Current version is 0.9.9 released on November 27, 2019.

Will the next one be the one release to create a true alternative (and even safer, open) alternative for the likes of Telegram?

The current version works well of Sailfish OS / Android but lacks much needed simplicity.

Riot-android is to be superseded by RiotX this year, so no.

Thank you for this info. Provide a good link to the RiotX “main headquarters” also? =)

You can see it here. It’s in beta testing in Play Store (v0.11.0 from few days ago).

It’s a complete rewrite in Kotlin language and a new Kotlin SDK and follows a more traditional messenger UI (e.g. rooms are listed top-down instead of left-right like in riot-android).

Sound absolutely promising. Also that Telegram lacks video calls… Yet Riot IIRC has 'em already.

Riot integrates Jitsi for calls. It’s been a long time since I last tried, but it worked.

You may also check Pattle too. It’s a more casual, family-oriented Matrix client.

Danke. Will keep eye on Pattle too then. But Riot appears to be where the full force is at now!

yup, waiting for redesign (primarily simplification of UX and additional functionality) so that i’ll be able to transfer friends over to it
