Description of Conversations (Jabber / XMPP)

A free and open source Jabber/XMPP client for Android. Easy to use, reliable, battery friendly. With built-in support for images, group chats and e2e encryption.

Design principles

• Be as beautiful and easy to use as possible without sacrificing security or privacy

• Rely on existing, well established protocols

• Do not require a Google Account or specifically Google Cloud Messaging (GCM)

• Require as little permissions as possible

Features

• End-to-end encryption with either OMEMO or OpenPGP

• Encrypted audio and video calls (DLTS-SRTP)

• Sending and receiving images

• Intuitive UI that follows Android Design guidelines

• Pictures / Avatars for your Contacts

• Syncs with desktop client

• Conferences (with support for bookmarks)

• Address book integration

• Multiple Accounts / unified inbox

• Very low impact on battery life

Conversations makes it very easy to create an account on the conversations.im server. Using that server comes with an annual fee of 8 Euro after a 6 month trial period. However Conversations will work with any other XMPP server as well. A lot of XMPP servers are run by volunteers and are free of charge.

XMPP Features

Conversations works with every XMPP server out there. However XMPP is an extensible protocol. These extensions are standardized as well in so called XEP’s. Conversations supports a couple of those to make the overall user experience better. There is a chance that your current XMPP server does not support these extensions. Therefore to get the most out of Conversations you should consider either switching to an

XMPP server that does or - even better - run your own XMPP server for you and your friends.

These XEPs are - as of now:

• XEP-0065: SOCKS5 Bytestreams (or mod_proxy65). Will be used to transfer files if both parties are behind a firewall (NAT).

• XEP-0163: Personal Eventing Protocol for avatars

• XEP-0191: Blocking command lets you blacklist spammers or block contacts without removing them from your roster.

• XEP-0198: Stream Management allows XMPP to survive small network outages and changes of the underlying TCP connection.

• XEP-0280: Message Carbons which automatically syncs the messages you send to your desktop client and thus allows you to switch seamlessly from your mobile client to your desktop client and back within one conversation.

• XEP-0237: Roster Versioning mainly to save bandwidth on poor mobile connections

• XEP-0313: Message Archive Management synchronize message history with the server. Catch up with messages that were sent while Conversations was offline.

• XEP-0352: Client State Indication lets the server know whether or not Conversations is in the background. Allows the server to save bandwidth by withholding unimportant packages.

• XEP-0363: HTTP File Upload allows you to share files in conferences and with offline contacts. Requires an additional component on your server.

Wonderful app. Bought this as a token of support . One thing is needed that the app should have in-app picture and video gallery so that we can see the images and videos right from the app. I mean WhatsApp and telegram has already got this. You need to click on gif and then let it load in 3rd party gallery to see what someone has sent you. I hope developer got what I am trying to covey. I can open a ticket on GitHub if required. Just a suggestion.

The app is great, first app that I buy ever (been using Android devices for 10 yrs.)! It does everything I need. Unfortunately, there are no notifications for messages in group chats (MUC). Normal notifications work fine. Please, fix notifications for group chats! EDIT: I have entered the group --> menu (three dots) --> Channel details --> Notify on all messages. Now it works 👍 thanks! (changed to 5 stats now 😃)

Thank you for this app. It if easy to find xmpp client, but hard to find xmpp client that supports audio/video calls so well as conversations. If you may add custom color themes, or possibility to add picture as chat background it would be amazing. :)

Have been using the FDroid version for a while now. Bought here as a token of support. Great work.

Be warned: Apparently, this app will not work with servers that require SSL/TLS. Strange that it did work for a few days, and then either the app updated or the server changed settings, and I am getting \"TLS Negotiation Failed\" constantly.

The client itself is good, however it doesn\'t follow Google Material Design guidelines and looks like a black sheep among other apps. Still lacks some small features like shared media list, search filters, etc.

This is a very good XMPP client for Android. The big hurdle is figuring out which XMPP server to go with, as not all are created and operated equally. Not the dev\'s fault though. The dev is very prompt about replying to email as well. I\'m happy with the app so far.

It\'s Ok. It seems to work with direct messages but I can\'t find a way to join group chats I am a member of... The join group chat option is on my friends Samsung but not on my Pixel 4xl. Strange
