Is irritating that they didn’t mention https://signal.org/ which is definitely a more common and convenient WhatsApp Alternative for Daily Chatting.

Signal is probably the second best application after decentralised Element/Matrix. Besides, Signal desktop app now has encrypted videocallings

On a concept level decentralized is definitive better than centralized, but real peer-to-peer would be best. But so far I have not found a practical system. Briar is an option https://lemmy.ml/post/40223

I think it’s debatable whether peer-to-peer is actually that much better than federated. Sure it has some advantages, but how can the inherent inconveniences be overcome?

I switched from WhatsApp to Telegram a year ago and I don’t regret anything! The only problem with Telegram is that you have to convince your friends to switch as well.

Other problems: No cross-device end-to-end encryption, and centralized protocol.

Other advantages: Really good apps on any device. Ton of features, everything works.

XMPP for IM, Matrix for team collaboration

It is not that it is wrong think just that it is centralised and not secure.
